    Semi formal dresses are the core of every woman’s party wardrobe. Whether it’s a dance, sorority or fraternity social, cocktail party, dance, sweet sixteen or school or work event, you can pull out a short dress for all kinds of occasions. Style it right, and you’re set to succeed anywhere! Here’s three things to consider when you’re purchasing a semi formal dress:

    1) Be ready to move! Unlike long formal dresses, when one might be sitting on a throne 🙂 or greeting a reception line, semi formal dresses should be ready to jump into the cab or limo, move on the dance floor, and keep going for hours.PromGirl sells the best semi formal dresses by LaFemme

    LaFemme’s short beaded sweetheart dress is ready to go wherever you take it! The layered chiffon skirt swishes while you move while spaghetti straps keeps it all in place. The beaded bodice pumps up the glamour, and the juxtaposition of smooth and sparkle is eye catching.

    Available in a rainbow of colors, this semi formal dress is definitely ready to go!

    2) Think sophisticate. Even if you’re all about romance, ideally you’d like to wear a semi formal dress more than once!  Styles that seem adorable when you’re 18 may seem childish when you’re 20.

    Atria has a beautiful, elegant ruched semi formal dress that is sexy and sophisticated.  The decorative three “ray” straps are anchored by a beaded embellishment, adding a special touch to the classic strapless dress.  budget semi formal dresses on sale at PromGirl

    3) Remember your budget.  You don’t need to spend a wad in order to look great (unless you want to!). Satin and chiffon wisps gracefully in this empire waist spaghetti strap dress priced just under $100.  The wide satin sash ties just below the bust, which is made of gathered chiffon.  The skirt plays off both of these materials, creating a semi formal dress that can rock all kinds of special occasions.

    Looking for more dresses under $100?  Check out the link and find your perfect budget priced dress.

    Keep these three considerations in mind while shopping for semi formal dresses and have fun deciding!

    Enthusiasm, kindness, beginnings: white symbolizes all of this with a spirit that is balanced and full of good energy.  Associated with heroism and all things admirable in the western world, white stands out in a rainbow of color.

    Whether you choose white for its meaning, or as a way to show off your great complexion, let me show you some of my favorite white prom dresses from PromGirl.

    broken glass bead white short prom dress by Alyce at PromGirl

    First up from Alyce, this short strapless sweetheart white dress.  Trending broken glass beading sparkles and the v dip waistline accentuates the many layers of tulle.  The ruffled hem is full of good energy!  This is a perfect dress for prom, a semi formal dance, sweet sixteen, or Quinceañera.

    And, if white just isn’t your style, what about red, black, coral or purple?  Alyce loves color, too.  Let’s face it, this dress is darling in your favorite color.

    La Femme open back halter evening dress for prom at PromGirlSultry, sexy and white, this long halter chiffon dress by La Femme features side cut outs (another way to accentuate a small waist) and an open back.  Who can ignore that peek of leg with the long front slit?  The beading follows the criss cross back and along the cut outs, down to the lower back.

    Balancing confidence, power and purity, this prom dress is for the girl who is ready to conquer anything!

    Shop PromGirl for strapless white beaded mermaid prom dress by Nina CanacciBlend mythical with white and you’ve got this beautiful strapless beaded mermaid prom dress by Nina Canacci.  I love the way the embellishment looks like a starfish and flowers, depending on your perspective.  Luxurious chiffon fabric emphasized in the ruched dress body creates understated yet sophisticated prom dress.
