One of our most popular dress collections is the Sherri Hill homecoming dress line and for many good reasons. The sheer variety and mix of classics and trends attract the most discerning shoppers, and the creative styles are well suited to girls who want their gown to stand out from the rest.
For many high schoolers, the homecoming dance will be the first formal event they attend, making it just as important and memorable as the prom. Homecoming is a time for young women to dress to the nines, be glamorous, and have fun. Searching out your dream dress is part of the festivities, and no one understands this as well as designer Sherri Hill.
Fashion has been part of Sherri Hill’s life for as long as she can remember. Growing up in Oklahoma, her father owned a fabric store. As a young girl, she would play amongst the bolts and rolls of fabric, lined up in gradients and rainbows. Fascinated by the endless colors and textures, she would imagine what her dream dresses would like, and which fabrics they would be made from. Her first jobs in fashion came at the local clothing and evening wear stores, and she later began bringing her visions to life as a designer for another popular design house, Jovani. After spending 12 years designing for them, she branched off on her own and created her own line of formal wear. She debuted them at New York Fashion Week, and the rest, as they say, is herstory.
A favorite of celebrities, you may recognize these gorgeous gowns from the MTV video awards and other high profile events. Zendaya, Selena Gomez, Carrie Underwood, and Bella Thorne have all been spotted in Sherri Hill dresses, and that is just a few. Kendall Jenner began her runway career walking for Mrs. Hill and that was just the beginning. The brand has now grown to be at the forefront of red carpets, magazines, and formal events. They are also an official gown sponsor for Miss America and a major fixture at Miss Universe, so you know these gowns have the quality that could win a homecoming queen crown.
Highly accessible, these gowns are affordable in price and high in quality. With one of the most extensive collections in the industry, the styles range from trendy two-piece crop top dresses, high-low hems, and minidresses, to elegant full length gowns, and classic A-line silhouettes.
This seasons homecoming collection is similar to a walk through the history of party frocks. Fun fringe dresses are full of movement, and reminiscent of the freewheeling flappers of the nineteen twenties, some even have fringe sleeves!
Flower embroidery and bell sleeve designs celebrate the bohemian lifestyle. Welcome back to the 1960s flower children culture, with details like lace up necklines and intricate stitching. Other looks are straight out of the seventies with swirls of sequins, extra wide cuffs, medieval style sleeves, psychedelic prints, and super short skirts.
The fashion time machine makes another stop in the 80s where taffeta ruffles, and short tiered skirts ruled the school. Several outfits are reminiscent of designs ripped right from our favorite cult classic prom movies, with notched neckline and bow details. They come in great eighties style colors such as turquoise, fuchsia, and bright purple.
Moving forward through time, we come to todays trends: long fringe skirts, ultra high slits, cropped tops, and trumpet skirts. Then the collection moves into the future, with metallic accents, asymmetrical cuts, high mock turtle neck collars, like something right out of a sci-fi film.
One of our favorite looks is the patchwork two-piece mini skirt and crop top set, it is like nothing we have ever seen in formal wear, with its rag doll chic appearance, in beautiful batik fabrics.
Known for having some of the best flower print dresses in the industry, bold floral patterns and prints are found throughout this years collection. For those who prefer something more subtle, there are also looks featuring delicate embroidered details, lace, and beading.
Cutouts also dominate this season, with many styles featuring side cutouts, cutout backs, and keyhole necklines. Some cutouts feature a sheer insert, so you can still feel covered or remain in compliance with your school dress code. There are also mock two-piece styles with a sheer nude strip of fabric at the midriff, perfect for getting the look you want without upsetting the administration.
Halter necklines show off the shoulders like no other, lending a lengthening effect to the arms. Or if you prefer to cover your arms, there are many long sleeve and short sleeve choices, as well as cape dresses that will make you feel like royalty. Illusion necklines with Swarovski crystal beading allow you to have jewelry built right into your dress.
Last years ubiquitous crop top designs get a glamorous update, with higher waistlines, cap sleeves, long lace sleeves, flirty fringe, and dazzling beadwork.
Classic black and white combinations are always eye catching and always in style and asymmetrical one shoulder and single sleeve styles really play up the drama factor.
Sherri Hill dresses have fun, flirty features like standout full skater skirts, with crinoline under layers to add extra volume. There are also bountiful tulle skirts, and plenty of fitted styles as well.
Pockets are hidden in the side seams of some of the fuller skirts, usually shown by the model putting her hand in the pocket or mentioned in the description. A hidden side pocket will be your best friend, when you need to stash your phone, or wish to avoid lugging a purse onto the dance floor.
Some gowns are dramatic, full length, stunners. Others are short and perfect for having fun on the dance floor.
It is never too early to start thinking about what you want to wear for the homecoming dance. In fact, you should order several months in advance to ensure you get the dress you want in time to get it hemmed, if necessary. If time is not on your side, fear not, we also have many Sherri Hill dresses in our inventory of In-Stock, Ready-to-Ship.
For those on the homecoming court, an elegant full length gown would be a wise choice. But if you are party girl who loves to dance, a short party frock will allow you to kick up your heels without tripping over a train.
A strapless neckline might require a larger bust, while high necklines and collars will look better on a smaller bust. Fit and flare silhouettes, trumpet skirts, and mermaid dresses show off a curvy figure, while an A-line skirt creates the illusion of hips and a booty.
Most importantly, if you think you found the perfect dress, trust your instincts, you probably did!
