Junior Semi-Formal Dresses

It doesn’t matter if you’re attending a special party, a school dance or just a fancy dinner, a junior semi-formal dress can set the mood and make you feel like a princess. A semi-formal can be tailored to suit your personal style since there are many options available.

Where to Find Dresses

In spite of the fact that dress styles change from season to season, some styles remain popular year after year. Dresses for semi-formal occasions can be found at several teen-oriented retailers.

Prom Girl

Dresses for all occasions can be found at PromGirl’s online store. In the Semi-Formal category, you will find dresses that are suitable for any occasion that calls for a short to mid-length party dress. In addition to the latest styles and colors for homecoming dresses, this retailer also offers selections for graduation, sweet 16 and homecoming. 

This strapless hi-lo dress offers a timeless look that never goes out of style. Available in sizes 7-11, it comes in light blue.

Dream Prom

Despite the name, DreamProm offers a wide selection of semi-formal dresses, categorized by event, such as homecoming, sweet 16, party, etc. You will find more high fashion styles on this site than you will in your local stores, but the prices are still reasonable. A-line sweetheart dresses, for instance, are embellished with rhinestones to give them a custom-made look. 

In spite of this, the price tag is under $150. You can also choose from 28 different colors and sizes 2-16 for this dress. The dress is also available in women’s sizes 14 through 26 for $9.99 more for teens wearing adult sizes.

With different accessories and shoes, any of these choices can easily be changed. In addition, the way you style your hair can make a big difference in how formal your final look is.

Lengths of Junior Semi-Formal Dresses

It is the variety of lengths, materials, and patterns that make junior semi-formals so appealing. Dress lengths and styles vary so much from season to season and even from region to region, so the best semi-formal length is the one that looks good on you.


Short party dresses are in style these days, as flirty skirts are back in vogue. Short skirts can also make your legs appear longer if you are shorter. Those who enjoy vintage dresses can create a distinctive look by wearing a 1920’s style Flapper dress. 

You don’t want to go too short since this can displease your parents and may even give you an appearance you don’t want, so make sure you check the dress in mirrors from all angles, including the back, where a short skirt can ride up even more. 

Also, take a seat, since the dress will rise even more when seated.


Are you looking for something a little longer than a mini? In between casual party goer and Captain’s party diva, knee-length junior semi-formal dresses can fill the gap. Knee length dresses are a bit more difficult to find, but they are more versatile and can often be worn for multiple occasions, including school dances, graduations, and semi-formal parties.


In a calf-length junior semi-formal dress, the wearer will look stylish at a prom or a fancy Christmas party. Attending an opening event in a calf-length dress is also a great idea.

Common Dress Material

Technically, a semi-formal dress can be made of any material, including duct tape, but there are some common materials used, such as:

  • Printed organza
  • The silken fabric
  • A chiffon fabric

In addition to these common dress materials, shiny or sheer materials may also be combined. Additionally, rhinestones and sequins are used as embellishments.

Creating Memories

Remember that the semi-formal event to which you’re wearing your dress is more about memories than anything else. It just so happens that finding your dream dress makes you feel like a princess and builds on those memories. It’s time to relax and enjoy your night on the town once you find the dress that you love. Get specific tips on what to wear to homecoming next.
