Homecoming season is upon us! If you haven’t gone already you’re probably heading to a homecoming dance in the near future – and that means you probably need a homecoming dress, too! For a lot of people this is their first homecoming dance and the whole “what do I wear” question can cause a lot of anxiety. To be fair, that question causes a lot of anxiety EVERY time you go – so, I’m going to give you a few suggestions to help guide your way!

Homecoming isn’t prom but it’s still a chance to get dressed up, have hair and makeup, and dance the night away. But, for most people, homecoming is not the time to wear that full length, poofy princess gown – that gown is for prom. Instead, it’s the time for those fun, cute, bouncy short dresses that let you show off an amazing pair of shoes!


Not every school has the same homecoming dance dress code┬ábut the general consensus is that a short dress is the way to go. And, even more in style right now are short, black, understated dresses that have more of a “casual” vibe. I’ve been noticing this season that looking more simple and understated is really “in;” so don’t be surprised if you see some fellow dance goers in a basic, black strapless or spaghetti strap number.


If shimmer and gemstones are your thing, don’t worry, because those never go out of style. But, if you’re a bit more reserved and a classic simple dress is your cup of tea then you are in luck – because that is a solid contender this year at homecoming.
