Prom 2015 is fast approaching, prom-posals are a-many, and dress shopping is intensely escalating. By now, even those that are wearing a tux need to have narrowed down their options if not already secured them.
The classes of ’15 and ’16 will take ‘a trip around the world in one night’ on April 18. This worldly theme will expose Aberdeen juniors and seniors to the different cultures around the world.
Prom in years past has become traditionally for both juniors and seniors, straying from the original tradition of a senior only prom. Some juniors, however, do not promote juniors attending prom and believe it should be saved for senior year. Julie Betz, class of 2016, agrees, “I think prom should be saved for senior year because it’s celebrating the end of your high school career. That’s why I am choosing to forego the prom for my junior year.”
Prom night is anticipated by many high school upperclassmen, looked upon as the “last hurrah.” Although the night is meant to be fun-filled, it often is transformed into stressful night.
Boutonnieres, photos, transportation, dates, prom-posals, dresses, tuxes, nails, hair, and jewelry. The night soon becomes an overwhelming mass of things that need to be done, things you forgot to do, and more.
Among trends to look for this prom season are two-piece dresses, extraordinary beading, color blocking, high-neck dresses, high-low gowns and even short dresses.
Prom dresses are traditionally long, leaving the short gowns to homecoming. The fashion of high-low gowns from prom 2014 has continued into this year and advanced the culture of short dresses among prom attendees.
