It’s prom season which means it also is prom dress season.

And having the right prom dress is essential to a successful prom night.

According to Caitlin Kirkland, the owner-operator of Ruby&Jane Bridal
Boutique in Lufkin, the right dress is one that is trendy.

“The trends have been a lot of two piece dresses with the high waisted [skirts] as well as the jewel, beaded neckline with real pretty backs,” she said.

Kirkland also said dresses range from $50 to $200 and the most popular colors have been nude, champagne, white and ivory.

“We do sell a lot of black,” Kirkland said. “Girls have really been liking those colors this year.”

If girls need a little loosening or tightening in certain areas, Kirkland said her shop uses other stores for those alterations.

And if someone doesn’t know what style that would best suit them, Kirkland said her shop can help.

”You can come in, and we’ll help you dig for anything you might need,” she said. “And we’ll help you look for a style that suits you.”

Principal Kurt Stephens said when girls do shop for their dress, they need to be aware of what is and what is not appropriate.

“There’s a point where too short is too short or too revealing is too revealing,” Stevens said. “Students should know what is considered appropriate, and if they don’t then that’s on them.”

Prom starts at 7 p.m. and ends at midnight at the Lufkin Civic Center.
