Homecoming is an event as important as the prom itself. However, while prom is a social event that indicates the end of being a teenager and the beginning of being an adult, homecoming is the tradition of welcoming back alumni of a school. It is a much-celebrated custom in many high schools, colleges and universities. This event involves activities for alumni and students, such as fun and sports events and a parade through the streets of the town. Choosing the perfect homecoming dress is very important for making a homecoming party a success.
Preferably, the hemline of your homecoming dress should fall on your knees. But you can choose a homecoming dress that is a little above or below your knees. Many people say that full length gowns are just the perfect for homecoming. They also tend to be tighter with relatively cut sleeves. Cute homecoming dresses also have to allow for some flexibility especially if you want to dance. You can reserve your long gown for the prom. Strapless dresses always fit impeccably but their lengths have to be sleek and cute. You can also add in some ruffles and tulles.
In choosing a homecoming dress, you’ll want to take into consideration several details, including your own complexion and your body size and type. Choose colors and shades that compliment your complexion. A good homecoming dress has to have dark colors, ivories and metallic tones.
No matter the dress you choose, you create the overall affect by the accessories you add. Accessories such as the perfect homecoming hair styles, shoes, jewelry, and shrugs can help to make you feel completely dressed up for the dance. Experiment with different hairstyles and see how they play off of you dress, add jewelry that will accentuate the neckline, choose pumps that are comfortable as well as dress it up. Every accessory you choose will help to complete the final homecoming picture.
Whatever you choose, have fun. Homecoming is a great time to experiment with formal dress as you prepare for other proms later in the year.
