How to Choose Your Homecoming Dress

Homecoming is right around the corner. And when it comes to finding a dress for the big event, there are many things to consider, from the color you wear to the accessories you choose to pair with your dress.

But if you know what you’re looking for and keep certain things in mind, then homecoming dress shopping can be an absolute breeze.

Below are some of our top tips for choosing the perfect homecoming court dress:

  • Know your style. Every girl is different, which means every girl has her own style. Whether you have a favorite color you like to wear or prefer a certain type of cut, fit, or detail on your ideal dress, there’s something out there that represents your unique personality. There are plenty of dress styles to choose from. If you have no idea where to start, gather some inspiration from look at our homecoming dress collections or go on Pinterest. Which styles stand out to you the most? What details do they have that you like? This will help you pinpoint your style so that you can find your ideal homecoming dress.
  • Have a budget. When it comes to homecoming dress shopping, you need a budget to set a limit on how much you’re willing to spend. That way, you won’t have to risk getting your heart set on a dress you can’t really afford. So, make sure you sit down and plan out the details of your budget. Because remember, you also have to think about other things you need to buy, such as shoes, accessories, hair and makeup, nails, and other expenses. So, keep these things in mind as you shop for your homecoming dress.
  • Consider your body type. You want to feel confident on homecoming night, right? And that means being able to look your absolute best. But if you’re wearing a dress that doesn’t flatter your body, then you won’t feel like your most confident self. So, whether you have a pair-shaped body type or have an hourglass figure, it’s important to find a dress that highlights your best features and makes you feel like the most beautiful girl at the dance.
  • Dare to be different. It’s great to have your own unique style, but it’s also great to have an open mind when it comes to finding a homecoming dress. So, why not switch things up a bit and get something you normally wouldn’t wear but at the same time feel confident in? A dress that brings a wow factor can really take your homecoming look to the next level, but you don’t have to go too over-the-top. You can still get a dress that feels like you, but brings something different to your look. For example, a vibrant color or even a fun detail like butterflies can really spice things up..
  • Think about your accessories. Every homecoming look isn’t complete without accessories. Even dresses with the most extravagant details and designs need some accessories to tie the whole look together. If you already have some accessories picked out, make sure your dress will pair well with them. Consider taking your accessories with you when trying on dresses. This will help you see if the accessories complement the looks you’re considering or if they’re taking away from the design.
