She Says: Prom 2011 "Girly/Punk" Style

I wish I was back in high school so I could try out some new trends for Prom 2011. The fact of the matter is, I hate traditional prom dresses. I think they're all so obvious and not at all trendy. They're too loud and brash, and some of the cuts on prom dresses today are ridiculous.  Then again... that could just be me.

It's funny, because last year I broke the "status quo" of prom by wearing an extremely girly, ruffly, lacy peach cocktail dress and punked it up a bit using my favorite leather jacket and matching black cage heels. Which is a little funny because S/S '11 trends include "biker" inspired attire and lace. I guess it means I was ahead of the fashion pool by a year, eh? ;)

Anyway, let's go along with style guides and suggestions for those of you who want to "spice" your prom look up a bit, or for those who have no idea what to wear at all.....

For those of you that are huge "Betsey Johnson" fans (at my high school, it seemed like everyone wore a Betsey dress to prom. Ridiculous.), here are a few suggestions.  This is kind of what I did in highschool...
Items starting from upper left corner, going clockwise: House of Harlow Valery Wedge, ROSEGOLD Sue Laceup Wedge, Report Signature Kay Studded Platform Pumps, Stila Smoky Eye Palette, Simone Leather Studded Jacket, (behind the Simone jacket: Burberry Prosum studded leather jacket and Steven Mercy Suede Platform Pumps), Flowerbomb perfume Viktor & Rolf, Vera Wang Princess, Betsey Johnson Eve Organza W/ Flower Dress, Betsey Johnson Evening Geometric Eyelet Strapless Dress, NARS Blush in Orgasm, and M.A.C. Lipstick in Shy Girl
I'll tell you right now that this look isn't exactly for everyone. You will get a lot of weird looks at first, but it's unique and it'll help you stand out. Plus, your date will thank you in the long run. He just has to throw on a dress shirt, nice slacks, converse and a leather jacket. ;)
