Prom is one of the premier times in a young woman’s life. You want to look your very best, and let’s admit it, looking your very best often means looking as beautiful and attractive as you can possibly look. Of course, there’s one more thing; you’re still in high school. Sorry, but you must save the over-the-top sexiness after turning 18. But we get it. So instead of telling you to wear something with long sleeves and a high collar, we will tell you how to get that sexy look you’re after while still keeping your prom dress classy and appropriate.

Prom Dress Classy tips

1.) If you’re going to show skin, avoid the obvious. A low, low-cut front not only screams ‘inappropriate’ but also slightly desperate, just as a short, short, short skirt would give off the same impression. So if you’re going to show some skin, we suggest going with something unexpected: your back. Backless gowns provide an element of surprise while still showing off your figure, and literally every “risqué” part of you is covered. It’s a compromise for everyone.

2.) Consider the cut. Even if something covers you completely from head to toe. It can still be sexy, provided it has the right fit. Even a long gown with long sleeves looks unbelievably gorgeous when made in a slinky, body-skimming design. Not only will you look amazing. It also gives off an aura of effortlessness. Like you can’t help how good you look. You tried to cover up…it’s not your fault you have an amazing body under there.

3.) Consider the fabric. Sheer fabric has been seen everywhere lately. If New York fashion week means anything, it won’t go away soon. This means you can use it to your advantage. When the sheer fabric is strategically placed in the correct places. It gives the illusion that something is missing while you remain completely comfortable and covered.

4.) Be supported. No matter what dress you wear, nothing is more unsexy than someone pulling and tugging at themselves all night. Wear the proper undergarments. Wear a different dress if you’re afraid you might pop out or expose yourself on the dance floor! You should be able to move however you please without risking an accidental peep show.

5.) Stay balanced. The fastest way to cross over from sexy to trashy is to try and do too much. A skin-tight, low-cut, short skirt is way too much. Instead, make sure to pick one feature to accentuate and keep everything else fairly tame. If you’re showing your legs. Keep your chest and back reasonably unexposed. If you plan on wearing a tight, fitted dress, make sure there is plenty of fabric to keep you reasonably covered. If you’re thinking of wearing something with a plunging neckline, opt for a longer dress that conceals your legs.
