YOUR LOOK fashionforecast By Kaye Davis Accentuate the Positive This year’s prom styles and glamorous looks will come as the result of a variety of beautiful and simple fashion accessories t’s the night of every girl’s dream. The magic that happens on this evening lasts well into future years. We are talking about the enchanting night of Prom, of course, and every girl will be look- ing for that perfect dress. As always, this season offers the latest and greatest trends for every girl to find the perfect dress in cre- ating the perfect evening. I LOOKING ABSOLUTELY FAB Fabrics are a standout and movement is the key. The beautiful flow of chiffon has returned, because the elegant yet almost float- ing appearance of chiffon brings prom dresses to life. It is a per- fectly romantic look. LACE IS IN Look for lace to be a standout feature on many prom dresses, specifically with focus on exquisite cut lace in a variety of colors and silhouettes. Lace will be used all over, as it will be generously and appropriately scattered throughout the dress. A lace overlay can turn the dress into a show stopper. Lace trends vary from vin- tage to high-end designer. RUFFLES ADD RICHES Let’s add a bit of ruffle to the mix. Ruffles are ultra-fem- inine and are used in different silhouettes ranging from ball gowns, high-low, or sheath gowns, because they add the allure of romance or flirty flair. Add a little bling, as some sequins and sparkle on a ruffle-accented gown can grant you one of the hottest looks for prom. SHEER ELEGANCE Some sheer accents will bring drama to the night, and the look comes straight from the designer run- ways. You’ll see it in color, sleeved, skirted, bead- ed and plain. Also, look for sheer insets that give a sexy look even though the sheer panels are lined. Additionally, the peplum trend comes straight from the red carpet to prom dresses. They are fun and flirty, while bringing added interest to any gown. 108 PAGEANTRY
