What should I wear to a casual middle school dance?

hi im in 6th grade and it's going to be my first middle school dance, so im not sure what to wear. all my older friends say that the people just wear regular school clothes so im thinking i should wear a plain orange v neck with a white cami underneath (orange is my fave color), a pair of dark wash flare jeans, and converse. what do you think? what are some suggestions that you would recommend? also since the dance is at the night, should i wear a jacket? whhat did you guys all wear to your middle school casual dances? btw my school has a pretty strict dress code so i can't wear tank tops or short shorts. (also i don't want to show too much skin) thanks guys!! :)

    That sounds awesome! Try maybe a light scarf, and if your hair is long enough, try putting it in a bun or a ponytail! Or you could use some bracelets or a long necklace!

    Forget about jeans and t-shirts and Converse, those are not something you should wear on a dance.

    A nice, fresh and young dress that's not too short nor too long will make the difference. A dress is the miraculous garment; it hides everything you might want to hide and show off the best of the female body.

    If you like orange, I'm sure you'll find plenty of dresses that colour in the mall. If not, any other scolour will be okay (except black, it's not a funeral baby!), as long as you like it.

    Remember, the perfect dress shpe for you depends on your body type though I always recomend the imperium cut. (the one that's tighter under the breasts and them flares down in an A-cut).

    Here are some suggestions that I find casual and young:

    And yes, you can wear a jacket, as long as it somehow matches your outfit, a denim jacket would be fine with any colour and would add an informal and playful tone. You can always carry a purse or a small bag...

    Most people just wear regular clothes like they do to school. But, if you wanna look a little nicer a v neck would be cute. I would wear skinny or straight leg jeans, though. Flare isn't the most cool these days. It' ok though. Converse are super cute :) And if its chilly out you can wear a light jacket and just take it off when you get there ( coat room) or just tie it around your waist. Have fun!

    :)

    Middle school dances are very casual. I wore a sporty dress with some patterned converse and a ponytail. Your idea sounds cute too.. but add accesories!!

    You should wear a white tee with a belt around your waist with drop earrings. Some dark skinny/straight leg jeans and some metallic flats. You should wear your hair straight with you bangs (if you have them) braided back and pinned.

    Good luck chica, you will look great, love your fashion guru!

    Um NO to the jeans and shirt. How about a casual dress? Not to done up, but pretty nonetheless. Ideas:

    Also, Forever 21 is inexpensive and has REALLY cute dresses. Go there, for sure. Probably at a mall near you.

    Definitely don'tt wear a jacket, especially if its in the gym because the gym can get really hot, especially with all the people crammed in it.

    Second, its true no one dresses up... just wear jeans and a nice orangsleevet-sleave shirt!

    HAVE FUN!!!!

    I think you should go with your instincts, what you've described sounds really great. You should probably bring a jacket just in case, because the dance will be at night. Have fun!! =)

    You know what you're doing the only thing I would add is I would wear orange converses. If it says hot you can always tie the jacket around your shoulders or waist depending on where you live.
