Finally, the highly anticipated Prom had just passed on Friday, May 11th. Where Juniors and Seniors have a place to express their energy all within the confinement of school rules. Fashion is a must at the event.
Nowadays, Teenagers use prom as a way to “flex”: a method showing how good they look and/or feel: in front of their peers. With that high extravagance, comes with high costs.
A poll was conducted via twitter consisting of 34 people. 21% of students spent 0-$100, 41% spent $100-$200, 21% spent $300-$400, and only 17% spent over $500. Depending on personal tastes, teens can spend up to thousands for Prom. They can spend things on car/ limousine rentals, suits and dresses, accessories, photographers, shoes, hair, tans, sunglasses, watches, dinner, corsages, tickets, and many other things. Prom is a way for teens to express themselves.
