Consider personal style
Consider your personal style -- whether you're romantic, edgy, classic, or retro. If you're not sure, flip through fashion magazines and cut out pictures of the styles that catch your eye before you go shopping.
Bring a friend
Bring along a friend whose style you admire. Their opinion can give you a different perspective.
Wear hair and makeup
Wear your hair and makeup similar to the style you're planning to wear to the prom, when trying on dresses.
Accentuate your figure
Accentuate your figure. Choose a dress that flatters your figure and suits your personality. If you hate your arms, choose a sexy, backless dress with capped sleeves.
Get great color
Get a dress in a color that you love. Brights or pastels, there are no hard and fast color rules, as long as you feel good in it.
Choose a clutch
Choose a coordinating clutch purse to hold all your stuff on your special night.
