If you're not the type of gal who loves to wear dresses to formal functions, don't worry. Thanks to the fearless ladies of Hollywood, there has never been a better time to rock jumpsuits, rompers, or menswear-inspired one-pieces. And while it might seem like a strange alternative to a dress, it's actually perfect for the important occasion. Rompers for prom are a great substitute for the uncomfortable, constricting, and predictable tulle explosions disguised as gowns. If you want to stand out and make a statement in the right way, choose one of these 19 beautiful jumpsuits for your big night.
