Depending on your opinions on prom, chaperone duty can be either a whimsical walk down memory lane or an alarming look into teen dating behavior. But whether you love or hate prom chaperone duty, one thing is for certain—you have to go to it clothed.

You get dressed every (OK, most) days, but prom is special. Prom chaperones need attire that’s school appropriate, budget-friendly, re-wearable, and stylish enough to avoid earning a spot on your students’ “Worst Dressed” list. Here are 10 prom chaperone dress picks that fit the bill. And sorry, male teachers, this one’s just for the ladies.
