I doing this for my stepdaughter so she can come with my wife. She sent me photos for ds232 but its a dress with open shoulder.

USCIS doesn't enforce the dress code in the photographs (Rather they enforce not to wear hats, head-cover, glasses etc.). So you are all set to go.

However, USCIS encourages subject to have a natural expression. Photos may be rejected because of too much smiling and the exposure of the teeth.
