What Should I Wear for My Middle School Dance?


Middle school dances are a fun and exciting way to enjoy your early teenage years with friends, and can make for some lasting memories. One exciting part of getting ready for a middle school dance is deciding what to wear, so make sure you know some good tips to help look your best for that upcoming dance.

Know the Code

  • Most schools have certain rules about what can be worn at school functions, such as skirt length, midriffs and types of shoes. Before you consider outfit options, make sure you know your school's dress code so that you can dress accordingly. You wouldn’t want to have to leave your school dance because your outfit doesn’t conform with guidelines.


  • Most middle school dances have a theme, so check out yours to get some ideas. If it’s a basic dance theme where you don’t have to dress up accordingly then don’t worry about theme. However, if the theme is something like a Valentine’s Day dance, try finding a cute outfit that has some red in it.

Read a Magazine

  • Look at magazines for inspiration. Have your parents get you some age-appropriate teen magazines and look through them to find out what may be the newest trend or style. You can also get some great ideas from magazines to help you create a unique trend all your own. Cut out outfits or ideas you like and head to your local mall to find something accordingly.
