Latest Prom Dress Trends in 2009

You will never forget your first prom dress, and the longer you spend choosing something, the better you will look on the night! Its important to get together with your friends and go shopping, have a trying on day where you go to every single dress shop in the area! Make sure to wait at least 24 hours before buying something, to make sure you really love it, and are confident its the most flattering look for you.

Prom dress trends for 2009 are:

One-Shoulder - This is a very designer look, and looks best on those with a slender frame, with slim shoulders. A bit of ruffling looks couture, and full length versions of the one-shoulder look are already being seen on the runways for Autumn Winter 2009/10! This is a classic trend, that will make you feel comfortable, feminine and elegant. It looks awesome with a pretty updo hairstyle, high heels and a cute clutch bag.

Short Skirt Lines - Its totally appropriate to experiment with the length of the skirt you wear to prom, assuming your school allows it! Short styles are fun and flirty, and you are a lot more likely to wear the dress a second time around if its short, as this is suitable for lots of other occasions as well. Make sure you buy this sort of dress in a fun colour of fabric (watch High School Musical 3 or Wild Child for fab inspiration).

Embellished Halters - This is very trendy and looks great on girls with a small bust. These can look slightly informal or a bit over-the-top sometimes, so be careful. Choose a dress that looks as though a large necklace has been sewn into the neckline, a lot of beads and glittery sequins can make a dress look instantly designer. These dresses look fab in a maxi or mini length, but be sure the color suits you, as it will be close to your face!

This year, style is all about creating your own unique, individual look. Start by finding something that inspires you, a celebrity whose look you love, or a designer who really captures your imagination. Then start to play around with clothes you already have, alter hemlines, necklines, or add sequins.

Accessorizing and embellishments are fun and on-trend, and are a great way to make any outfit look different and super stylish. Add some extra glitz to an outfit by popping to your local fabric shop or haberdashery.
