Style Syllabus: Non-LBD Frocks For Your Next Formal

Flowers and showers aren't spring's only gifts. Whether it's a last hurrah commemorating senior year or a celebration of successfully surviving hazing, fancy-dress events abound at the end of the year. And while any night of the year provides an opportunity for leg-baring, these events seem to demand something spiffier than the traditional LBDs you've been rocking on winter weekends.
As soon as the Uggs go back into the closet, college girls tend to overdose on too-short floral dresses. But unless your party is Romy and Michelle-themed, it might be nice to stand out among all those flower girls, just once.
We certainly think so, and that's why we've put together a list of fanciful ensembles that are completely floral-free. End the year with a bang with some seriously stylish duds that'll have 'em talking all summer long!
