Well, as an 8th grader, and the oldest child, my knowledge about Prom limits to movies, songs and Rebecca Black... haha.
All joking aside, prom dresses are just so beautiful. They make you feel like a princess no matter which type of dress you choose.
My advice is to choose a dress that reflects your personality and choose colors that make you face glow. Sparkles, studs, lace, you know, the works.
For you guys I've gathered up my most recent sets with perfect prom dresses:
I love this one, it's short, but you'd feel so special, the lace is in style!
Silky, has a bow, what more can you expect.
Here's some other sets below:
You can probably tell that I don't know much... but I really hope that you all that are in high school find the perfect dress!
