The anti-prom look

Prom for the rebel

Does the thought of a big poofy dress and squeezing your tootsies into stilettos make you want to hurl? Well, maybe the traditional prom look isn’t for you, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Instead, embrace your anti-prom style.

Prom for the rebelThink simple

Sometimes the beaded, glittery dresses are enough to put any girl on overload. So instead of being totally grossed out by the over-the-top hot pink number worthy of Barbie, keep it simple with something sleek.

There are plenty of options that don't include ruffles, bows, patterns or sparkle. And, for that matter, aren't in the pastel family, either.
