Well Miners, it’s almost that time of year again- PROM! Already students are busy around campus, putting up posters and decorating cars, desks, and getting creative in any way they can to ask their dates to prom. But what’s even more important than choosing who to go with is choosing what to wear! (Right?)
The past year dress styles have definitely been apparent at school. Maxi skirts and hi-low skirts and dresses, (also known as Mullet Skirts,) have become increasingly popular! At formal and harvest, lots of girls sported dresses with open midriff slits or transparent floor length skirts with mini skirts underneath. Prom, of course, is the most “formal” of all of the high school dances, so you don’t have to worry about being “too fancy”- you can dress up as much as you want!
Sparkles and glitter are usually a must-have on a prom dress, but there are girls who prefer a sleeker and simpler look. If you’re going for an out-there look, animal print or multicolored dresses are definitely the way to go. For girls hoping to go for a more classy look, you can never go wrong with a floor length black dress. Some simple beading on any kind of dress can really spice it up; try on every dress that catches your eye!
The most important part of a prom dress is feeling comfortable! You don’t want to feel like your dress is squeezing you too tight, or feel like it’s about to fall off. You want to be able to sit down and stand up at dinner with comfort, and of course, be able to dance!
For boys, deciding what to wear to prom is a lot less stressful than it is for girls. You simply buy a tux and a tie to match the color of your dates dress. You can liven up your outfit easily, considering a standard tux is pretty simple. Bright colored vests, undershirts, ties, and pocket protectors can make all the difference.
No matter what you wear, the most important part of prom is to have fun! As long as you feel your best, you’ll look your best!
