How to Dress Nicely for a Regular Junior High Dance

Wondering what to wear to the dance? Well, written from the perspective of a middle-schooler, this will help you pick out a nice outfit!



  1. Be feminine, but comfortable. A short sleeved, fitted, scoop-neck t-shirt will keep you cool and comfy, and looking great while at it. Puff-sleeves are very "in" now!Dress%20Nicely%20for%20a%20Regular%20Junior%20High%20Dance%20Step%201.jpg
  2. Wear Jeans or Shorts! They'll make you look and feel good and you won't be a self-conscious as you would be if you wore a skirt or dress. But if you are going to keep it simple on the bottom, wear a bold top!Dress%20Nicely%20for%20a%20Regular%20Junior%20High%20Dance%20Step%202.jpg
  3. Wear comfortable shoes or your feet will stop you from having any fun! Ballet flats with good arch support are great, and so are sneakers. Don't wear heels, cause your feet will hurt within 10 minutes of dancing.Dress%20Nicely%20for%20a%20Regular%20Junior%20High%20Dance%20Step%203.jpg
  4. Wear some fun jewelry that coordinates with your clothes. Faux pearls look very girly and pretty and will dress up any outfit. Wear earrings that go with your outfit too, but try them on the day before to make sure they won't hurt your ears.Dress%20Nicely%20for%20a%20Regular%20Junior%20High%20Dance%20Step%204.jpg
  5. Don't wear long sleeves, or sweaters, because it gets hot in there with so many people dancing! Dress%20Nicely%20for%20a%20Regular%20Junior%20High%20Dance%20Step%205.jpg
