In the United States, a promenade dance, most commonly called a prom, is a semi-formal (black tie) dance or gathering of high school students. This event is typically held near the end of the senior year (the last year of high school). Proms figure greatly in popular culture and are major events among high school students.
Although the world has been changing, the historical tradition has been that high school girls wear prom dresses and high school boys wear tuxedos to the prom. Obviously, the rule is not written in stone and has flexibility. However, if you have question you should consult with your school regarding the appropriate dress code.
Girls wear traditional ladies' dresses or evening gowns and often adorn themselves with jewelry such as earrings and a necklace. Girls also wear a corsage, given to them by their dates, and girls give boys matching boutonnières to be worn on their lapels. Some couples opt to match their dates dress color to their tie or suit.
