The anti-prom look
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.
Ditch the heels
Who said you had to strap on four-inch stilettos that will make your feet pinch? If it's not your taste, forgo them altogether! There are plenty of stylish flats that are wildly comfortable, too.
Check out embellished, patterned, colored and even sequined looks for a bit of a "dressier" edge. And hey, even Hollywood starlets have been seen in classic kicks like Chuck Taylors paired with cocktail dresses.
Twilight star Kristen Stewart even rocked a pair on the red carpet to the 2009 MTV Movie Awards.
