Babydoll and prom style dresses are two of the many mid-20th centuries shapes that currently undergoes reinvention from decade to decade. Arguably the most arresting reinvention of this style was done in the eighties, as echoed in this Mesh Prom Dress by Glamorous.
Providing a distinctly eighties take on the shape is the choice of fabric and texture, creating a spunky edge to a very girly style – an interplay that characterised much eighties mainstream fashion. The peach tone and empire line echo the classic fifties vibe of the prom dress, while the extreme hemline gives a decidedly modern edge. Perfect for capturing the ethos of eighties street fashion.
