Finding an age-appropriate semi-formal dress

"When girls need to select a semi-formal dress, they often want a style that will make them appear grown up, while mothers prefer they don an age-appropriate frock. However, when looking toward young Hollywood, the two ideas aren't mutually exclusive.

Teen queen Selena Gomez, star of Nickelodeon's Wizards of Waverly Place, recently stepped out on the red carpet at Miami's Fashion Week Swim. The Ramona and Beezus actress looked just her age in a sleek magenta dress that fell just above her knees.

Instead of choosing a body-hugging fit that may appear too mature on the young starlet, Gomez opted for a one-shouldered number that gathered slightly at her waist. The frock's fuchsia shade was also spot-on, as the fun color was fashion-forward, while still appearing young and fun.

Gomez, who turns 18 later this month, can serve as an inspiration to young girls (and their moms) who are shopping together to find an ideal semi-formal dress. Mothers can search online with their daughters, and browse hundreds of styles until they find the perfect gown that is both age-appropriate and stylish."
