Homecoming week is a special time for students and staff. It’s a chance for alumni to return and reconnect, to meet current students, and to celebrate the school community. Dress up in your best duds with pride and show off who you are!
A Little Black Dress
For example from someone: “As a fellow homecoming king, I have seen many girls in skirts and dresses that are too short for their taste”. Even if it is more flattering on the girl in question, you don’t want to be the girl who tries to get up onstage to announce the homecoming queen and then can’t see what she’s saying. Trust me: no one wants to see anyone wearing a little black dress at homecoming.
The LBD is the perfect choice for homecoming attire because you’re still able to get up onstage during your speech and show off how well-endowed you are (or not). As long as you hold your head high, no one will care if your dress ends in mid-thigh or shows a chunky heel under your right leg. As long as you’re comfortable, everyone will be happy with whatever you choose to wear.
A Bold Suit
If you’re looking for a bold and stylish look, consider wearing this white suit. We recommend pairing it with a black shirt and matching shoes. A pair of simple stud earrings would look nice in the notched lapel of this jacket. This elegant piece is made of 100% polyester and has button-down pockets on the front.
A Plunging Jumpsuit
Plunging necklines are a bold statement, and for those of us who dare to bare, the plunging jumpsuit is a gem. Plunging necklines call for accessories on the neck and upper body; a belt that spans the waist will help draw eyes up to your collarbone and lovely face. Try pairing with a statement necklace or earrings to pull focus upward. A bold color or pattern like an eye-catching animal print will also make your jumpsuit pop. Go bold with shoes and choose something that catches attention, like leopard-print pumps or black strappy sandals. Use your clutch as an accessory as well; opt for something small in a bright color or metallic sheen that’ll complement the rest of your look.
A Flowing Dress
Nothing is more romantic than a dreamy, floaty dress. A flowing dress will make you feel like an ethereal princess on Homecoming night, and it’s not just because you’ll look incredible in one. Flowing dresses are super stylish, and they’re also very comfortable. No matter what your style is, there’s a flowy dress out there for you!
Think about how perfect the flowing dress is for the most magical night of the year: Homecoming. The dance is at night, so you can get away with a darker color that shows off your dark side as well as your trendy aesthetic. Plus, when everyone else is wearing a sparkly cocktail dress or mini skirt (which should both be avoided if you want to show Homecoming what’s up), you’ll really stand out in a good way with a unique maxi or midi-length silk gown. We know that other girls will try to copy this trend the next year—but who cares? You started it! Your dance partner will be so impressed by your ability to start trends and wear them better than anyone else that he’ll probably ask you to prom on the spot…just saying
A High-Low Skirt
A high-low skirt is one of the most unique and timeless pieces you could wear to homecoming. The faux leather material and sleek silhouette will make you stand out on the dance floor. Pair it with a body suit or t-shirt for a casual look, or take your outfit up a notch with a bra top or spaghetti strap top. Whether you pair it with heels, sandals, booties, or sneakers, this outfit will get you compliments all night long!
You may have heard that a boy is meant to wear a fancy suit to this dance, but we can assure you that pants are one of the best options for boys attending homecoming. There are so many types of pants to choose from. You can pick casual jeans or denim pants with rips and tears in them, or you could go for something dressier like corduroy pants or khakis. Pants can also be dressed up with a stylish belt and pair perfectly with a polo shirt, button-down shirt, or sweater vest. If you’re looking for an outfit that is a little more formal than jeans but not as stuffy as an entire suit, look no further!
As far as accessories go, don’t forget to add some flair! Ties come in all shapes and colors and are easy to match with any outfit, while suspenders offer a fun throwback look that anyone can pull off.
If you follow these tips and tricks, you’ll be sure to show up at the dance in a look that everyone can’t stop talking about!
#1 Wear a dress you feel comfortable in. No matter how stunning your dress is, if you don’t feel good wearing it, it’s not worth it to put yourself through the agony of feeling uncomfortable for an entire night when there are boundless options out there that might not make you look quite as fabulous but would still be just as beautiful on you.
#2 Show off your personality with accessories. You can stick with a classic look and still add some flair to your homecoming ensemble by selecting accessories that reflect who you are or what’s fashionable right now. Don’t be afraid to go all out if that’s what makes you happy!
#3 Be confident in whatever you wear. Your attitude will have as much (if not more) of an impact on whether people think positively or negatively about your outfit than the outfit itself. Own whatever look gives you confidence, because ultimately, the way people respond to what you wear is based more on their perception about how comfortable and secure in yourself and your choices that they think you are than anything else!
In this article, I’ve gone over how to select a homecoming dress that will make you look and feel your best. But the most important thing is to be yourself and have fun! Homecoming is about celebrating the school, welcoming back alumni, and having a good time. So do your makeup like you want to, dance with your friends till your feet hurt, and enjoy one of the last high school dances!
