Homecoming Dress Shopping 101

Homecoming is just around the corner and that means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear. It can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not sure where to start. But don’t worry—we’ve got you covered! Here is everything you need to know about homecoming dresses so that you can find the perfect look for your special night.

Budgeting for a Dress

The first thing you should do when shopping for a homecoming dress is figure out how much money you have to spend. You want to be realistic when budgeting for your dress, as there are many factors that could affect the cost such as fabric quality and embellishments. Once you have an idea of how much money you are willing to spend, it will be easier to narrow down your options and find the perfect dress within your price range.

Finding Inspiration

Once you know how much money you have to spend on a dress, it’s time to start looking for inspiration. You can find inspiration in magazines, online stores, and even from friends who may have worn dresses they love in previous years. When looking at pictures of various dresses online or in print, make sure that they align with your style and body type so that you get an accurate idea of what will look best on you.

Choosing a Color & Style

Now that you have an idea of what kind of dress looks good on your body type and fits into your budget, it’s time to pick the color and style of the dress itself. This part is all about personal preference; there is no “right” or “wrong” answer when picking out colors or styles. Whether it be royal blue or red homecoming dresses, the most important thing is that whatever color or style you choose makes YOU feel beautiful and confident! So take some time to try on different styles until you find one that really speaks to who YOU are as a person.

Accessorize the Right Way

Accessorizing your homecoming dress is one of the most important ways to make it stand out from all of the other dresses at the dance. Here are some tips for accessorizing a homecoming dress:

  • Shoes – Choose shoes that complement your homecoming dress, whether they’re high heels, flats or sandals. Avoid wearing shoes that are too flashy or bright if your dress has a lot of sparkle, as they will distract from the dress.
  • Jewellery – A statement necklace, earrings and a bracelet can all add an extra sparkle to your homecoming look. You may choose just one piece of jewellery for a more understated look or several pieces for an eye-catching ensemble.
  • Handbag – A small clutch or cross body bag is a great way to keep all your essentials together while looking stylish at the same time. Choose one in a coordinating colour to bring everything together.
  • Hair accessories – To give an extra touch of glamour, add a headband, clip or hair slide to your hairstyle. This will draw attention to your face and make the dress stand out even more.
  • Hair – To complete your look, choose a hairstyle that complements your homecoming dress. A classic up-do is a great choice for an elegant look, or you can try something more daring such as a half-up, half-down style.

Homecoming dresses can seem overwhelming at first but once you break down the process into easy steps — budgeting for a dress, finding inspiration, choosing a color & style and finally accessorizing — it gets much easier! With these tips in mind, we hope that our guide has helped demystify homecoming dress shopping so that this year’s dance will be the most stylish yet! Good luck with finding your dream homecoming dress – we know it’s out there waiting for YOU!
