Prom. Four letters. One syllable. The day you have been looking forward to since childhood or have been dreading since freshman year of high school. Countless teenage movies have been made upholding an ideal vision and tradition of this event. This is the big day where the end of the night consists of slow dances with the guy you’ve had a crush on forever and the quiet people you knew throughout high school suddenly decide not to be wallflowers. Before your perfect night can even begin, one important factor can demand your attention and stress you for months end—deciding on the perfect prom dress. But don’t panic! There are no right and wrongs when it comes to your own personal style.

If you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t stress about what to wear to any function because you feel confident in anything you wear, want to save money, or you’re not an extreme girly-girl, then deciding on a dress should be easy for you!
