Q. Any suggestions for a sophisticated prom dress? Should it be black? What length?
A. A black dress or a long dress doesn’t guarantee sophistication. You need to look for a dress that is appropriate for your age, doesn’t show off too much skin and fits your personality. I had fun finding multiple styles that are sophisticated, feminine and perfect for prom. My extra tips would be to make sure you go light on the hairspray, don’t wear too much makeup and be sure to blend below your chin. Rah, Rah!
