Prom dress sites like promgirl.net and 4prom.com offer a variety of dresses for you to choose from. Gather a list of styles, colors/prints, and cuts that you like. Once you have that, you can start deciding what your dream dress should look like.
2. Choose your silhouette:
Narrowing down your idea silhouette is the next step in choosing your prom dress. Start with the length: do you want a short dress for a funkier look or a long dress for a more classic prom look?
