What should wear for my high school senior yearbook portrait?

Hello. I know this is a bit early but I just realized that this summer is the summer I will have to take my senior portrait for the yearbook. All I know is that it’s supposed to be formal. Everyone keeps telling me that I’m supposed to wear a dress. And in almost all the senior pictures I’ve seen, the girls look like they’re wearing their prom dresses or something.
I have zero dresses in my closet and I am not really a dress person. I do have one skirt but it’s just an A-line with stripes. I am Asian and my hair is brown but almost black and will probably be down to right between my elbow and shoulder by summer. I also have a side fringe but I don’t know what I’ll do with it by then.
Someone, please give me ideas for what to wear for my senior yearbook portrait. I’m just absolutely clueless.

    I am a senior this year. If you don’t plan on having many full-body portraits done, don’t worry about wearing something that looks like a prom dress. Usually a simple, solid color nice top would work. Black off-the-shoulder tops look classy. I would warn against spaghetti straps or tube tops, though, because it sometimes look as if you aren’t wearing anything when the portrait is of the upper body. Then you can just wear a simple skirt or even a nice pair of black pants (not jeans) and heels or cute ballet flats. I would recommend trimming your hair before the picture, but not doing anything drastic that could end up looking terrible. And keep hairstyles and makeup simple.

    You want the focus to be YOU, not the hair or clothes! Don’t worry too much about it.

    I’m not sure why all of the girls you’ ve seen have worn prom like dresses.i took my sr pics this year and most of the girls wore 1 knee length dress and whatever else they wanted. A knee length sunday church type dress should be formal enough if you want to wear a dress. Or you could wear something that reflects your personal style. That’s always better than some stupid dress!
