Homecoming is a traditional annual event enjoyed by students and alumni gathered together to celebrate their school. The homecoming dance is your chance to impress as you party and perhaps catch the eye of the boy you want to wow with fantastic style. Your choice of dress is all important and should make you feel as good as you look, filling you with confidence in your beautiful appearance.
The homecoming trend for short and even shorter is well represented in these collections. Sherri Hill also includes glorious full-length gowns and Jovani branches below mid-thigh with knee-length. Short, minis and micros are the dominating lengths that prevail throughout. Short is fun and flirtatious, giving you the opportunity to reveal plenty of leg. If provocatively short appeals you could opt for something with a difference and consider the romper suits with fitted shorts that feature in the Rachel Allan collection.
These homecoming dresses are not big on subtle as they tend towards the showy and dramatic. The lines are full of vibrant prints and colors, and are ornately embellished with dazzling beads and sequins. They are dresses that steal the spotlight and add a delicious vibe to the evening. Every fabric you can imagine is worked into these collections, featuring tulle, chiffon and satin, jersey, jacquard and lace, bandage and sequin. The Blush collection really goes to town by introducing fabrics with a fantastic sheen such as pleather, leather, Mikado and metallic brocade. The collections combine fabrics in two-piece outfits or layer then in dresses, increasing the allure with different textures. Many of the short swing A-line skirts reveal coquettish layered and pleated underskirts in contrasting colors, adding volume to the flare and a cheeky element.
Rich and passionate colors are a hallmark of these collections, showcasing red, peacock, emerald, fuchsia, sapphire, violet, tangerine and yellow. There is black to fulfill the desire of everyone to own a little black dress, along with bold black and white color combinations. Shimmering gold and silver satisfies the most expensive of tastes. There are soft pastels to suit a sweet nature represented in delicate shades of petal pink, dreamsicle, light pink, light turquoise and a host of other dreamy shades. Vibrant prints are represented in a bold use of floral, geometric, stripes and bohemian. Many dresses combine a strikingly beaded bodice or top with a gorgeously patterned skirt.
Two-piece dresses are a popular choice, combining midriff revealing cropped tops with short fitted or A-line skirts. The style of tops runs the gamut and includes all-beaded halters, sleek straight strapless tubes, sweetheart cropped tops with dazzlingly beaded illusion necklines, keyhole tops, cutout back tops and tops overlaid with lace and featuring scalloped midriffs. Often the beading seen on the tops is mirrored on the beaded waistband of the skirt, or the metallic trim on a neckline may be replicated around the hemline of a fitted skirt. The mix and match appeal of two-piece dresses increases their popularity as either piece can be worn with something else to create an entirely new look, thus offering great value for money.
Bodice and crop tops showcase off-the-shoulder necklines, sweethearts, illusions, one-shoulder, bateau, jewels and Vs. There are keyhole bodices with crossover halter neckline, bodices with enticing cutout sides and strapless corset bodices with exposed boning and lace-up backs. Multi-colored beads and luminescent rhinestones embellish bodices in dramatic and captivating ways and are used to adorn bands that accentuate nipped in waistlines.
Most of the dresses tend to the strapless or sleeveless look, or showcase cut-in shoulders. Alyce Paris is hot on single beaded shoulder straps. Some designers venture into sleeves that are so fascinating they could tempt the strapless girl to switch styles. In addition to cap sleeves these collections feature dresses with cold shoulder sleeves, long sheer lace bell sleeves and three-quarter length sleeves with puffed cuffs.
Fitted skirts are tight as they cleave sensually to the frame in the most flattering style with their high-thigh or mid-thigh hemlines. They feature fringed tiers, beaded and scalloped hemlines. The A-line circle skirts have the swing factor that makes them such a hit on the dance floor. There are two-tone tulle skirts with lettuce hemlines and box pleated skirts with concealed side seam pockets. There are dual tiered skirts and short skirts with high-low hemlines. The Clarisse collection favors short bubbly layered skirts that are fun and vivacious. This style also features heavily in all the collections as it is a must have look for many girls that are infatuated with the latest fashions. Some of the A-line skirts are adorned with lace appliques or sheer overlays.
If you are attracted to a dress with more length consider some of the stunning fitted knee-length dresses in the Jovani label. They are chic and sophisticated with a sexy edge added by touches such as sheer midriffs; side slit skirts and plunging necklines. If full-length is the look you desire for homecoming you will be seduced by the beauty of the long dresses and two-pieces in the Sherri Hill collection, which also offer contemporary silhouettes such as trumpets and ball gowns. There are boldly printed ball gown skirts paired with crop tops and long slinky fitted skirts with daringly provocative slits. One look that is so on trend is the ball gown skirt with a thigh-high slit, taking the usually formal look into celebratory mode.
If you want to project glamour there are many dresses in the JVN line that offer this glitzy look, accentuating an hour glass figure by featuring striking embellishments on the side panels or making use of embroidered lace appliques over a nude lining. In contrast the XO collection by Hannah S has a youthful and fresh vibe that will appeal to younger girls as they prepare for their first homecoming.
