A Girl’s Guide To Prom Dress Shopping
Don’t get peer pressured
If you’re not a girly girl, but all your friends decided to wear puffy dresses with sequins on them, it doesn’t mean you have to.
Same goes for a girly girl.
Wear what you want, don’t let your friends change your style.
Be who you are
Don’t let other people change you, if you like a dress, wear it. Don’t change your dress just because someone said a sly comment about it, for example, “That dress makes you look pale.” and “Your hair looks better when it’s down.”
Find a dress that shows who you are, so that on prom night you will stand out, expressing yourself.
You are your own person, and don’t let anyone change that!

Be conservative on money
If you are lucky enough to be able to max out your parent’s credit card, go ahead.
But if you’re not able to do so, don’t sweat. You may only wear your prom dress once, so there is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy dress, rather buy a nice one but focus more on accessories and mix and match things up to make cute combinations.
Don’t throw your dress away afterwards
You may need it after your prom, for a college gathering or another formal event. So keep your dress, because odds are that you will need it sometime in your life again.
Switch and swap dresses
If one of your friends has around the same size body as you, you can switch dresses, this is a great idea because after prom, throughout high school, there will probably be another event where you need to wear a dress, and swapping your old prom dresses with your friends can be a great solution, you will get the feel of something new, but you won’t have to pay a cent.
