Gown: a woman's dress, usually with a close-fitted bodice and a long flared skirt, often worn on formal occasions.
Since prom is coming up (for me anyways), a gown would be the perfect kind of dress for anyone who wants to feel like a princess. It seems like a lot of girls fall more into the casual, short, cutesy kind of style but I find that being more feminine is what would catch people's eyes the most.
There's something elegant about wearing something long and flattering your figure. It shows your confidence with your body and your confidence being the centre of attention.
You also would stand out a lot more and would be bound to get compliments all night long.
