Is it just us, or was a two-piece prom look the ultimate quest? We attribute this entirely to Bianca Stratford.

This one’s easy. Sure, Sandy Olsen is remembered for her black leather look, but what stole our hearts was her corsage-encrusted, spaghetti strap dress she wore. We don’t mind those t-strap heels, either.

Christian Louboutin Belly Nono Heels ($895)

​These would pair nicely with just about any flowy dress you’ve got in your closet.


She may have “killed the teen dream,” but the dream lives on with her sheer-bottom dress.

Gold Hawk Long Night Dress ($174)

​Toss a denim jacket over this, and you’ve got yourself an ideal outfit for a warm summer evening.

Only Regina George could pull off a floral crown-embellished neck brace. So fetch.

ASOS Blossom Flower Hair Crown ($22)

​A floral crown is almost synonymous with spring at this point.

She’s All That


Everett Collection

Aside from having the best dance scene, our favorite prom moment of She’s All That: Laney Boggs’ Kate Moss-esque thin-strapped black dress.

Acne Studio Spaghetti-Strap Satin Dress ($750)

​The Who What Wear office is buzzing about how chic this LBD is.

Never Been Kissed


Everett Collection

This one goes out to all the scrunchie-loving, ruffle-wearing ladies out there. A voluminous metallic sleeve never hurt anybody, right?

Johhny Loves Rosie Polka Dot Hair Scrunchie ($15)

​Call us crazy, but we’re quite fond of the scrunchie.

The Virgin Suicides

There isn’t a girl out there who doesn’t wish she is sartorially some (or all) parts Lux Lisbon, and we’ll keep it that way.

Reformation Athena Dress ($198)

​At long last: An ultra-flattering frock in a dainty print.

Pretty In Pink

Andie Walsh’s polka dot bespoke creation had us all reaching for our scissors come prom season. Many a dress was ruined in the DIY process (sorry, mom).

Juan Vidal Marilyn Dress ($857)

​We’re not saying you’ll wear it everywhere, but at some point in time, you’ll be calling out for a halter-neck, polka dot dress. When that happens, make it this one.
