What Your Homecoming Dress Color Says About You

Hey AMARRA babes!

Whether you’re a limelight-loving diva, a starry-eyed romantic or a rockstar rebel, you want to make sure your homecoming dress reflects your unique style and looks amazing. While there are lots of elements to consider before you begin shopping, color should be your number one. Why? Because even the most flattering cut or stunning sequins won’t do you justice if the tone or hue of your dream dress doesn’t vibe with your look. And, sure, basic black is always an option… But where’s the fun in that?

So, is that hot pink short dress dripping in glitter a definite do for you? Or should you consider a sparkly something in ocean blue? Keep reading to find out!

Looking Hot, Hot, Hot

No surprise here – if your besties love you for your open heart, fiery temper, or larger-than-life persona, warm colors like reds, oranges and yellows probably feel best to you. They’re big, they’re bold and they demand attention – just like you! Think of Amanda Seyfried on the red carpet at the Oscars this year, or Megan Thee Stallion at the Grammys. These show-stopping red and orange gowns demand your attention without even a hint of bling.


If you find yourself drawn to dresses like these, then you’re a starlet in the making for sure! You’re energetic, temperamental, and the queen of every room. Friends love you for your passion and excitement.

Red can be a tricky color to pull off, so make sure you arrange for an in-person try-on before committing. There’s a shade out there for every combination of hair and skin, but brunettes may have an easier time finding the perfect red hoco dress than blondes.


Can’t get enough of these juicy hues? You’re bold, bright, witty and vibrant. The first to crack a joke or lend a helping hand to someone in need, you’re as sweet as a mandarin and just a little bit tart.

Like it’s big sister, red, orange can be a challenging color to pull off. We’d suggest avoiding big jewelry or other embellishments and letting the color do the talking. Love the sunny, citrus-y vibe but not ready to rock neon? Subtle sherbets are just the ticket.


Drawn to dresses in shades of lemon or sunshine? We bet you’re the most optimistic and loyal of your group, always encouraging everyone to look on the bright side and ready to find the silver lining in any situation. Hoco dress rips? You’re the type to cut of the skirt and make your maxi into a midi – and look fabulous!

Yellow looks fantastic on anyone, but blondes might have just a little more fun! If you’re drawn to the color but worry you won’t stand out, opt for neon or add some sparkles to give your lemon a little zest!

You’re a Cool Girl

You may not be ice cold, but you’re definitely chill. Understated elegance and classic glamour speak to you more than statement pieces, though you definitely don’t mind attracting some attention. Regina King rocked baby blue at the Oscars this year, and Lupita Nyong’o took purple out of this world at the Black Panther premiere – proof that cool colors aren’t for wallflowers. (Even if we do love Cinderella and Aurora, too!)


Nothing says elegance and sophistication like blue. If you gravitate towards watery shades, you’re the kind of girl who never forgets a birthday and always writes a personal thank you note. But you’re far from boring! You just see the value in classic looks and refined presentation.


The traditional color of royalty, rich, velvety purple is for the queen or princess in all of us. Combining the sophistication of blue with the attention-grabbing temper of red, it’s the best of both worlds. Leader of the pack? Captain of the team? Queen of all you survey? Then eggplant is for you. Or, if you’re feeling a bit more soft and sweet, lilac and lavender call out purple’s powerful vibe with a softer sweetness.


Minty freshness, springtime newness, and, of course, money, honey. There’s no end to the positive associations with green. Like its cousin, yellow, green symbolizes optimism and new beginnings, so it’s a perfect choice if you’re turning over new leaves this year. Or maybe you prefer deep emerald and pine? You’re a nature lover in glamorous packaging!
