Tips:

When looking for that perfect dress, stick to styles that are flattering to your specific body type.

Get inspiration from the red carpet. Pick out a look you love and mimic it at affordable retail outlets such as Windsor, Claire’s, Carson’s.

Many schools are putting restrictions on dress styles and are required to follow a “dress” code due to previous styles being too promiscuous. Be considerate of your school’s rules – there are many beautiful and tasteful styles available that will keep you looking pretty, proper and dad happy.

Utilize magazines and online resources for this season's latest trends
