Rule number 1: Research what's trending. Whether or not you want to follow them, knowing what's trending can be a huge help when you're out shopping. You'll have a better idea of what to expect and what you want to look for once you know what's popular right now.

Rule number 2: Figure out your personal style. How do you want to look at prom? Trendy? Classic? Edgy? Dreamy? With so many different styles to emulate, it's easy to get overwhelmed, but there's a simple solution. Take a look at your daily wardrobe. How do you dress on a daily basis? For the most part your personal prom style is just your daily style with a glam revamp! After all, you want to stay true to you!
Rule number 3: Learn what style looks good on your body type! Finding the right prom dress has a lot to do with a sense of style and attitude, but it's also got a lot to do with shape. You may love a dress for the way it looks on the hanger and hate the way it looks on you. That's because some hem lines and bodices may not be as flattering on certain body types. For example, if you're super petite, a huge ballgown may overwhelm your tiny frame. Remember to keep your shape in mind while you shop!
Rule number 4: The Buddy System! Bring along a few trusted friends for honest opinions, but remember it's you who ultimately wears the dress so don't let anyone talk you out of something you love and feel comfortable in. Whether you bring your mom or your best friend or both, they can all play a big part in helping you select the prom dress of your dreams!
Rule number 5: Always try dresses you wouldn't normally go for. Force yourself out of your style comfort zone, you may hate what you try or you may fall in love; either way, it's fun and necessary to experiment with your fashion sense! If you're a girl who always goes for sparkle and glitter, why not try a sleek unembellished dress with cool cutouts? And vice versa.
Rule number 6: Keep it school appropriate. Last but not least, be sure to keep in mind that Prom is a school funded event; therefore, you should dress respectfully. Don't freak out, there are tasteful ways of looking drop dead gorgeous for prom. Keep an eye out for dresses with peeks of cutouts or illusion if you want to show some skin without going over-the-top.
