2008 Prom Dresses

Prom is just around the corner, so if you're not sure what to wear this year, check out Kidzworld's style tips on the top prom trends of 2008!

This year's prom picks are all about florals, ombre and colorblocking trends.
2008 Prom Dresses

Floral Dresses

Florals are the prettiest look of the year. Instead of getting a dress with an allover floral print, which is way too casual for prom, try something that has floral motifs, like accents or embroideries along the neckline and hemline. Or, swathe yourself in this tiered halter dress that we've picked out, which evokes images of blossoming petals and is the perfect color choice for the season. Be sure to keep your accessories low-key if you plan on wearing a bold dress like this one.

Ombre Dresses

Another key look this season is ombre, which is a unique dip-dye pattern. Ombre is a French term meaning "shaded" and is an old European technique that creates a graduated color effect from light to dark by holding sections of the garment in one color of dye for longer periods of time. The result is a fresh and feminine look for prom!

Colorblocked Dresses

If you're not sure about what color dress you want to wear on prom night, then colorblocking may be the way for you to go. Colorblocking is the technique of using big blocks of different colors. It's great for those of ya who aren't into prints and patterns, but want to wear something more dramatic than a solid-colored gown.

Studded Dresses

If you're looking for something a little more edgy, check out this black dress - with sparklin' rhinestones and a racerback design, it's not your ordinary LBD! Pair it with your favorite fitted leather jacket and some peep-toe booties and you've got yourself a rockin' look for prom!

Dear Dish-It in the forums

Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
