Some girls may prefer the traditional ball gown while others may go for the cocktail dress, which can be worn at other occasions as well. Fashion can satisfy all tastes and preferences, but here we will discuss the advantages of choosing a semi-formal prom dress.

With the casual dress you can go visit friends, go to a party or go out dancing in a club.

This way, when the magical evening is over, the dress will not waste its days hanging in your closet as a museum specimen or nothing more than a sentimental keepsake, but can be reused for at least a few seasons for all kids of occasions – going to a dressy restaurant, a friend’s wedding, a christening, family celebrations, company parties, etc.


Should be around knee-length, give or take 5 inches. If you want a very mini skirt, then your shoulders should be covered.


All is allowed as long as it looks good on you. However it is advisable that you choose fresh youthful colors such as peach, soft blue, yellow, golden, mild grey, purple and fuchsia. Black and white is also a good combination, but if you are bent on using a black dress make sure to diversify it with an unusual pattern or detail in order to avoid looking to serious and strict.
