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!

I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.

Personally I think you should just find things you like and wear them without worrying about what style it fits in to. You should express yourself, not conform to other people's views/standards. :)
