Best Prom Dresses for your Personality

Apr 28, 2012

If there's a prom in your future, you don't need a crystal ball to help you decide what to wear. Take our quiz or read on to figure out what dress style works with your personality.

Athlete

Go for bold color instead of the standard black, white and sequins. Look for silky fabrics to let your athletic figure stand out. Go for a v-neck dress with a slit up the leg like the one above from Liz Fields to really show off your strong points.

Activist

Looking for eco-friendly options? Try a second-hand store for a gently used gown or rent one from a local costume shop. If you're shopping for a new dress, look for clothing made out of organic cotton, hemp, bamboo or recycled polyester. And for the bold and crafty spirit (who's not afraid of a little rain to melt her gown away), there's always cardboard...

Goth

Prom isn't just for jocks and divas... Goth girls wanna have fun, too. Unfortunately, not a lot of designers cater to the dark and mysterious crowd. One Missouri teen took matters into her own hands and fashioned her own Goth gown. But if you're shopping for a fantasy dress, look no further than your main inspiration: Gothic. Your perfect dress is black, of course, and features a structured bodice with a plunging neckline and a long skirt. Add a splash of color - not too bright, of course -- burgundy, purple, or dark navy will do just fine. A lace overlay on the dress or at least a lace shawl adds some lovely shadows. Top it off with black accessories like rubber bracelets and long black gloves and you'll be dressed for a night to remember.

Diva

Short, sassy, flouncy and loud -- your dress should tell people you've arrived as soon as you step foot out of the limo. Jewel-toned colors like royal purple and blue, emerald green or a bubblegum hot pink are perfect for your style, and make sure your tulle skirt poufs out a mile! Make sure your dancing shoes don't have too high a heel, and don't forget to manicure your nails to match your fabulous dress. When you grab the microphone and start to sing on stage, everyone will notice!

Princess

With the Royal Wedding of Princess Kate in everyone's recent memory, there are many princess-inspired cocktail gowns hitting the dance floors this year. Forget the pretty little princesses with tutus of your childhood. Modern day princesses are glamorous and elegant! Pippa Middleton, Kate's sister and Maid of Honor, wore a beautifully simple, spohisticated silky gown with a plunging neckline. For the royal wedding, she dressed it up with low-key accessories, but for prom, you should accessorize with a tiara headband, glittery makeup and sparkle plenty with jewelry!

Bohemian

Bring the flowers to the party by wearing them on your dress. Long and flowing, of course, but step up your everyday look with satin or silk fabrics that flow and move with you. You can be both groovy and beautiful.

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
