Wearing a Dress to Prom—So Last Century

It’s that time of the year again – the time that was the highlight for almost every 90s high school movie – prom season.

But style has come a long way since the 90s.Year after year, prom has been perceived as a “dress” event. Now, fashion has broken traditions and slowly but surely added a variety of alternatives to the typical prom dress: the two-piece dress, the female tux, and the jumpsuit.

The Two-Piece Dress:

For those who don’t want to stray too far from tradition, the two-piece dress might be the best choice. It consists of a high-waisted skirt of choice—long or short, slim or flowy, slit or no slit—along with a complementing crop top.

Wearing a two-piece dress is the perfect way to avoid buying something for one event only. The separate pieces can be paired with any crop top or skirt according to the occasion, whether its prom, going to the beach, or simply hanging out with friends.

The Female Tux:

Reserved for those daring enough to blur the lines between genders, the female tux is a unique and fresh outfit idea. It is a slimmer, more curve accentuating, version of the man tux, but it’s not all that different—well, except for the heels that are worn with it.

The Jumpsuit:

This one-piece outfit is the perfect balance between comfort and class. After making a comeback in 2013, this 80s-born outfit is a great alternative to the classic prom dress because it allows the wearer to dance the night away without having to worry about flashing anybody.

Very much like the two-piece dress, the jumpsuit can be worn for various occasions; you can dress it up or simply keep it casual. Plus, it suits every body type.
