If you like the outfits worn during the '50s, then 2008 is for you! This year, we would be seeing more and more 50's inspired outfits especially baggy dresses that fall below or just above the knee. Yes, no more form-fitting outfits in '08, baby doll baggy dresses are the fad!
Hollywood would be seen donning more and more of these in 2008. However, Manila fashion would still be limited to its less "vintage" sister, the trouser shorts and capri pants. Start loading up on these short garments as anything showing a little bit of leg is the in thing this season (hence, the dresses)
Flats would still reign supreme in '08 with more and more designs leaning towards the classics (black, with gold buckles/ribbons). The classic black flat is the must-have shoe for this season as the other pieces of clothing would look perfect with this type of shoe.
We would be seeing more ethno-designed thingies this year ranging from clay bracelets to geometric necklaces and huge glass rings. Polymer clay products are very in this year so if you can get your hands on cheap clay bracelets this holiday season, do so as they will be very big come 2008 and we all know how expensive these little pieces are.
Sporty chicThe sporty look would still be seen today with less punky-ness and more class. Think: patent leather jackets with white trouser shorts. Or even wearing ballers-slash-silicone bracelets are cute this year. Just make sure they're not too loose, try to find ones which fits your wrist perfectly. Also, wearing dog tags are still in this year and goes very well with the sporty chic look. Again, don't over-do it and pair it with less manly pieces.
