Prom trends for 2008 focus on length, with short prom dresses taking center stage on the dance floor. Strapless and halter prom dresses are also prom trends for 2008, and can flatter almost any body type. The halter dress is perfect for the plus-size teen, and can also de-emphasize larger busts. A strapless dress accentuates both elegant shoulders and neckline, while also attracting attention to the beauty of a girl’s delicate facial features.
Old Hollywood glamour is evident in prom trends for 2008, with dresses focusing on Latin-styled trains and ruffles, and smooth, ruched satin prom dresses. Long, formal dresses also personify the celebrity-inspired trend for Prom 2008, and are perfect paired with simple accessories or glittering jewelry. The 60s fashion icon is also clearly represented, with a-line or cocktail length skirts and a Jackie O. touch. No red-carpet look is complete without long, gloves and a small, shiny pocketbook; with just a bit of modern edge, and your own personal touch, of course!
