One of the cool things about prom is all the work you do in advance, like casing out what your friends are going to wear, pouring through magazines for ideas and talking about it with everybody else. It€™s practically like you€™re Rachel Zoe and it's some swanky awards show ala Hollywood style, with your own handsome suitor and your own limousine. Only you€™ve also got homework, after school sports and that babysitting empire that€™s paying for the extra you spend on a dress. Feeling stressed? No need. We asked Stylediarists to heed to the call and they€™ve sent in their prom looks and favorite prom-ready dresses Here€™s a SLIDESHOW of favorites!
No matter how special your prom is, no matter how handsome the suitor or how hipster you are, the dress you buy will either give you wear in the years to come or it€™ll hang in your mom€™s attic until it€™s someday hauled off via yard sale. The long, backless dress that ended in a big black bow that I wore to my 11th grade homecoming dance was worn again at a black tie wedding for a hotel heiress five years later, and adorned my baby sister for her senior prom long after. The bright bubble gum pink tea-length taffeta strapless worn to graduation? Not so much. The ticket is all about what you pick. Here is a SLIDESHOW of my five favorite "you€™ll-wear-it-again" dress choices, plus tips on how to convert them later!
