    No matter how our prom nights went — glorious with a crown or semi-awkward, like this editor's — the high school event will always live fresh in our minds (and yearbooks): the date, the shoes, and, most importantly, the dress. Imagine our excitement, then, when a few readers asked what we'd wear to the big dance if we were invited again. We quickly took to stepping down memory lane and gathered up 11 fanciful frocks that would have made our teenage dream an even better night to remember.

    And, fortunately, the offerings on the market today are much chicer than those of our teen years — nope, there's no pink organza or sparkly mesh here. Instead, you'll find sweet florals, pretty sheers, and even some shiny metallics. Ahead, see (and shop!) all of our nostalgia-inducing picks — and, hey, you may just grab some inspiration for your upcoming formal soiree, too.
