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,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
