Apart from your wedding day, your matric dance is a pretty huge deal and one of the most important days of your life, thus far. As past traditions have gone, it was always customary to have a dress designed and custom made. Having a dress custom made has its disadvantages; custom does not always mean beautiful. The fit needs to be 100% right and you only get to see what the dress will look like on you when it’s almost done. At this point, there is no turning back. It’s a super stressful process and can spell disaster.
Why not purchase a ready-made dress that you can try on and then make your own using accessories? The purchase of a ready-made dress ensures that you will look flawless on your important day. We have selected 9 show stopper styles; from leopard print to sheer and sequins – we have you covered.
P.s. This leopard-print cocktail dress, worn by Rihanna is giving us all the feels. And we love that she has a clutch bag to match.

These Are The Styles That Will Be Huge at Your Matric Dance This Year
A halter-neck is a nice update to the jumpsuit trend. Pair it with a pair of scrappy heeled sandals.
When opting for a lace dress, look to an off-the-shoulder style. Amplify this bare-chested look by adding layered necklaces.
A slit adds a certain amount of movement and depth to an otherwise simple dress. Pair this style with a classic high heel.
Take your style to the next level and opt for the print of the season. Add a pair of statement earrings to balance the look.
If a floor length dress seems daunting, a velvet cocktail dress can look just as fab. Add extra glam to this look with a pair of metallic block heels.
We love this sheer dress with incorporated lace insets. Longer sleeves offer great coverage without being too covered. Ditch the necklace and add some sparkly earrings.
You had us at gold and shiny. We love the addition of multi-coloured sequins and a ruffled hem. Pair this statement dress with layered bangles.
This cowl neck slip dress in emerald green is super versatile and can be easily dressed down and worn again. This hue is best paired with gold jewels.
This off-the shoulder ruffle dress is the perfect option for a winter-time matric dance. Accessorise with oversized clips or a scrunchie in an ode to the ’80s.
