Joey's plaid party dress

Mad for plaid but didn't think you could rock the punky pattern in a fancy way? Think again, fashionista! Just look at Joey's pretty plaid dress for a few pointers. Rockin' the checked-pattern in plain ol' black and white keeps this look from being too over-the-top. Plus, the dress' feminine shape—a slight sweetheart neckline, sassy bow and just-above-the-knee hem—keeps this frock flirty, not funky.
Silver ballerina flats with darling bows tie into the ensemble's cute party-girl vibe. A subdued necklace and sleek, straight hair keep the outfit sophisticated enough to sport for your school's holiday dance.
