I got married in the mid-90's, so I remember the formal wear fairly well.  I was a bride's maid a few times in the 90's as well.  I honestly crack up at that clothing as much as I do my 80's prom stuff.  Styles come and go quickly and they are funny just a decade later and we wonder what we were doing wearing that hideous thing!

Quoting Rust.n.Gears:

I wasn't grunge. I wore an Audrey Hepburn black dress for my prom.

Quoting steelcrazy:

Yea, because grunge was so much more attractive.  sidesplittinglaughter

I'm happy I was a teen in the 90s.

I didn't recognize her. You are right that late seventies and early
80s were similar except for shoulder pads came in the 80s and hair feathering was being replaced by the big hair ....and sweaters Omg the sweaters sweater dresses, sweater suits lol.


Quoting steelcrazy:

I can tell you for sure that #35 is from the 80's as it is a picture of Michelle Obama and she graduated HS in 1981 and this is her prom picture.  The late 70's and early 80's had very similar hair and clothing styles, so it is possible that #34 is from 80 or 81 as well.

Quoting calsmom62:

#34 and 35 seem to date more from the 70's.my graduation pic was taken in that same chair lol. And my hair was like

#34 in 76.

LOL, it's hilarious that a lot of the guys managed to have bigger hair than the women.

I was a teen in the 90s too, but I still remember a lot of the 80s styles firsthand--especially the Madonna look.
