How To Find A Ghetto Prom Dress

A ghetto, in a nutshell, is a place where the poor, minorities, and the underprivileged exist. Despite the neighborhood, children go to high schools where the prom is still the most important event next to the graduation. It is the time when a teenager can express their individuality away from the faceless crowd.

A ghetto prom dress has been a time-bomb in most high schools. Many parents have abhorred them due to their own preferences for the old prom standards. Still, some parents have allowed their children to wear these styles. However, not all ghetto prom dresses are made equal.

These are what one should bear in mind when you want to wear ghetto-style to your prom:

  1. Rebellious.  That's right. A ghetto prom dress should go against the flow of what is expected of a prom dress. Teenagers prefer the shock factor of such a dress, because it makes them stand out at a formal occasion.
  2. Finance.  Ghetto prom dresses are cheap to assemble. Any kind of fabric will do, as long as the design is kept in mind. Many of them think of what Jennifer Lopez or Lil' Kim would wear at a typical MTV event.
  3. Sex.  Teenagers feel sexy in a ghetto prom dress. Skin is usually bared, especially when it's tanned. It is a come-hither look without actually saying it. Cleavage and bulging muscles are shown with pride. Tattoos or body piercings are almost always shown. Underwear like brassieres and panties are almost never worn. If they are worn, they should be visible so that everyone can see that you are wearing them.
  4. Fashion sense. Weight is not an issue when wearing a ghetto prom dress. Everyone can wear what she wants without any care about what other people might say. Do not go over the edge with a slutty look - a sultry look will do just fine.
  5. Hair style.  Hair coiffure is also important. The more colorful the dye mix in the hair, the better. The hairstyle should also stand out - the more imposing, the finer. Think of unusual designs like a Ferris wheel or helicopter.
  6. Coordination. Teenagers hate to go to proms where their peers are absent. Ghetto prom dresses allow coordination. The fabric may be the same but in different designs or it could be thematic - most of them opt to have the ‘hood gangster look when going solo or the pimp and ho for couples.
  7. Accessories. Bling is cheap, including shiny semi-precious stone accessories set in metal that can move in circles or just shine. Ghetto outfits are incomplete without it.

Unlike the traditional prom dress that reeks of sophistication and class, the ghetto prom dress allows adolescents that are leaving their high school a sense of freedom and an ability to express their individuality without censure from their peers.

Ghetto prom dresses aim to look like you don't care about going to one but still look fashionable, stylish and very unusual. It depends on the school board if they allow it on prom night.
