Classic prom dresses are full-length, sometimes even trailing the ground. But breaking fashion rules is always fun, and if you've got the legs and don't mind the male attention, a mini dress will be a lovely alternative.
Don't be scared of wearing a dark colour-it's chic.
There's also a practical side to buying a little black dress like this. We all know the 11th Commandment, Thou Shalt Own A Little Black Dress but this one is something you can easily save and wear for another occasion. Betsey Johnson $396.
Good for hourglass figures/curves.
A new silhouette for prom dresses is sleek. This dress is perfect for accentuating your feminity. I love the feeling of tight silk against my skin. Purple Silk, $210.Suits:
