It's not until next year, she's only year 10 at the moment, but the other thread got me thinking. And the fact that DD recently went on a school trip which involved dinner at a very smart hotel and they were told to 'dress up'. DD eventually chose a black patterened shirt/blouse, with a black skater style flared skirt, and patent pumps/loafers (she won't wear heels as she's very tall).
But when I saw the photos she looked so uncomfortable and out of place as all the girls had dresses on.
So, looking ahead, what did your girls (who prefer jeans/converse/vans to dresses/skirts) wear to their prom!
I bought my daughter a grey cocktail length dress which was embroidered and sequinned in a slightly lighter grey, she was adamant she didn't want a long dress, she also wore a low heeled shoe. You might find your DD would wear a dress if she was able to choose a less "girly" colour she felt comfortable with.
I refused to go to my year 11 ball. We were told we had to wear ball gown style dresses and a whole load of other rules that I didn't like the sound of. 6th form ball was much more relaxed, lots of girls in trouser suits, black skirt/nice top combos as well as more fancy stuff.
