Prom Fashions for Girls & Guys

“Those were the days,” some say. I attended two proms, one as a junior and one as a senior. First with a friend and the second time with a boyfriend; a college boyfriend–oooh wasn’t I cool? Both times I foolishly wore strapless when I barely had anything to hold the dress up. This was before I found good strapless bras and before I actually grew a pair–me the late starter. Both years I chose two tone dresses from a pink and white “candy striper” like confection to a black and white gown (remember Jessica McClintock?) and both years my hair had too much hairspray and a little too much Sun-In creating a strawberry blonde effect. Not the choices I’d make today. Setting aside other choices like white knee socks with brown sandals in 5th grade or my Thomas Sweets t-shirt with red suspenders I look back on my style as a kid and teenager and find that I may have made some quirky choices, but I was sassy and didn’t care. Plus, my style choices lead to a career as a stylist directing fashion shoots all over the world. Pretty good, right? So whether you want a flowing “princessy” ball gown or something vintage dress or a cute cocktail dress – just enjoy the party! And if you choose strapless be sure it will stay up when you “swing your hands in the air like you just don’t care” because now there are phones that catch nip slips.
