This season’s most enticing looks are all about glamour and grace. The style is feminine and romantic, creating old-school charm with a thoroughly contemporary twist. By following these classy trends, looking back at yearbook pictures will be something to be proud of for years to come.
Loose, long curls and feminine braids
Pretty in (hot) Pink
Fuchsia isn’t just a color; it’s an attitude. Ellie, a junior at Highland Park High School (pictured left), is captivating in this beautifully simple gown with sleek lines and strategically placed cutouts, flattering in all the right places. Her loose curls add a feminine touch to complete her timeless look.
Here & Wow!
Metallic is the perfect choice when you want to shine without the sequins. Daria, a junior at Plano West Senior High School (pictured middle), is ready to trip the light fantastic in this shimmery gown with a sleek, cropped bodice that tastefully reveals just a hint of skin. A soft, feminine braid is a perfect touch.
Amanda, a senior at Episcopal School of Dallas (pictured right), looks sleek in this one-shoulder emerald blue beauty. She shows off this season’s must have lace-up heels that compliment the lines of the dress. The Brown University lacrosse team can’t wait to get her out of those heels and into her cleats!

Tux rental options are better than ever. This one is courtesy of Minsky Formal Wear.
