Every girl wants her dance outfit to be exciting, memorable
and of course, compliment-worthy. In order to leave a lasting impression, you
need to be able to stand out from the crowd. Get voted best dressed with our
tried-and-true tips, below.
Add a huge piece of statement jewelry to your ensemble. Pick
unique earrings, a set of chunky bracelets or a bedazzled necklace to add
pizzazz to a plain dress. Plus, the perfect statement piece will be sure to
spark conversation (and compliments!).

A big trend for spring is a brilliant mani. Whether you go
with a fiery red, bright blue or perfect pastel, the trick here is to not go
matchy-matchy with your dress.

Stand out from the sea of sparkle with a sweet frock in a
retro silhouette. Pretty polkadots are cheerful yet plucky. Just be sure to
keep your hair and makeup modern to avoid looking too costumey!

Punch up your pout
The red lip has always been a classic, but it also had a
huge presence in the spring 2012 runway shows. Remember, no two red hues are
the same, so test out a couple to see if you need a shade with blue undertones
(best on pale skin), or orange-y undertones (best on darker skin). Always apply
red lipstick with a lip brush for smooth and precise application.

Instead of pairing your frock with a neutral peeptoe, try
finding a floral print or tribal print heel that has the same color scheme of
your dress. So fun, right?
