While many may see ruffled gowns as more of a prom dress, this dress, in particular, is bound to catch the attention of a few secret admirers (wink wink). Yellow is the color of happiness, and you cannot go wrong with this shade in particular. The ruffle detail is a good alternative to your regular wide pleats that gives off a more formal look. Ruffles add texture to your plain dress which is anything but boring.

3. Pink Off-Shoulder Dress

It’s giving approachable girl-next-door for sure!
