Whether you’re a freshman or senior, our Homecoming dress style tips will help you pick the perfect dress & stand out from the crowd beautifully.

Homecoming Dress Style Tips #1: Semi-Formal means Dressy but Not Over the Top

“Semi-formal” does not mean jeans and a cute top. It does mean a pretty dress. It also means comfort. You want to have a great time dancing and hanging out, not tugging at an uncomfortable outfit.

Yes, a skirt and top would be OK, but a short, pretty & affordable dress is the best choice.


Homecoming Dress Style Tips #2: Choose a Knee-Length Dress

Long dresses are lovely, so if your Homecoming dance is more formal – or if you’re going to a fancy college homecoming – then long is fine.

But usually, Homecoming dances are more relaxed, so a cute knee length or above the knee dress is perfect.


Homecoming Dress Style Tips #3: Pick Fall & Winter Colors

Homecoming happens in autumn, so you definitely want to switch out your summer color scheme.

You can choose dark fall colors like brown, black or rust. White, ivory & metallic dresses are also perfect.

And of course, you can always use Homecoming as the excuse to buy this year’s Little Black Dress!

Just top your dress with a pretty sweater, a classy jacket, or even a dressy shawl. You can stash them safely once you get inside.
