The style of evening gowns varies tremendously from year to year. Some years everyone will wear cocktail-length dresses, and other years long dresses will be the rage.
When visiting a shop that sells Prom dresses try on every dress that you think might work for you. Dresses usually look very different on you than they do on the hanger. If you don't try it on, you may end up eliminating a dress that would of looked great on you. Some of the shops keep records of what dresses have already been sold or ordered for a particular school Prom to ensure that you don't end up with the same as your coleagues.
Don't forget to take your time and start looking early.
