Prom Perfect

If there’s any occasion that merits going glam, it’s prom. To find out what’s hot this year, T&S asked Bry Rechan, a junior at Clayton High School, for her top prom picks.


Rock red shoes with a short dress for maximum impact. A monogrammed necklace adds a nice personal touch.

Dress: revolve | Jewelry: Helzberg Diamonds (Galleria, West County Center, Chesterfield Mall) and other jewelers | Shoe: Enzo Angiolini at Macy’s (Galleria, West County Center, Chesterfield Mall) and other department stores



A white dress serves as a clean backdrop for funky accessories like jewel-tone shoes and chunky bracelets. Plus, it’s a great way to show off a tan!

Dress: Lilly Pulitzer at Pink Magnolia (9810 Clayton Road) | Jewelry: J. Crew (Galleria, Plaza Frontenac) | Shoe: Nine West store (St. Louis Premium Outlets)



Mesh trim provides a fresh update on the classic floor-length column dress. The long skirt allows you to add height with a heel, while a linked-crystal bracelet adds bling.

Dress: Jovani at Distinctions (12354 Olive Blvd.) | Jewelry: Dillard’s (Galleria, Chesterfield Mall) | Shoe: Dolce Vita at Nordstrom (Galleria, West County Center)


Be fashion-forward with a one-shoulder gown with a high-low hemline. Glittery drop earrings and heels complete this elegant look.

Dress: BCBG store (Galleria, Plaza Frontenac, St. Louis Premium Outlets), in Dillard’s (Galleria, Chesterfield Mall ) | Jewelry: Kate Spade store (Plaza Frontenac, St. Louis Premium Outlets) | Shoe: Badgley Mischka at Nordstrom (Galleria, West County Center)


Nothing says drama like a red gown, which pairs perfectly with strappy silver sandals and pearls.

Dress: Distinctions (12354 Olive Blvd.) | Jewelry: Ibella Beads (770 N. New Ball as Road) | Shoe: Nina at Macy’s (Galleria, West County Center, Chesterfield Mall ), DSW (Brentwood Pointe)


A sequined mini dress shows you’re ready to party. Pair it with simple black heels and pearl studs for a hint of class.

Dress: Parker at Neiman Marcus (Plaza Frontenac) | Jewelry: Majorica at Nordstrom (Galleria, West County Center) and other fine department stores | Shoe: Steve Madden store (Galleria, Prestige Outlets Chesterfield )
