We know – it’s summer, and school is probably the last thing on your mind. However, it is never too early to start thinking about your homecoming dress! It’s always a good idea to plan ahead so you’re not scrambling to find that perfect dress last minute! From simple to edgy, there’s a style for everyone’s taste. So get a head start on the best homecoming dresses by keeping these styles in mind!
Think About Your Homecoming Dress Color
The first step is deciding what color you want your homecoming dress to be. This can be based on your favorite color, your skin tone, or a shade that you believe complements you best. Look at past colors you have worn, or what people seem to compliment you on. This is also a great opportunity to experiment and try a color you have never worn before. Make a list so you know what to start looking for.
Homecoming Dress Style
After you have a color established, think about which style dress you want to rock. Is it off-the-shoulder, strapless, or long sleeve? Is it short, or long? For this, you want to keep your body shape, the atmosphere, and the crowd in mind. Be sure to pick a style that will make you blend in, yet stand out at the same time. Additionally, you should be comfortable all day and all night, so choose wisely. Feeling comfortable will make you feel more confident!
Shoes & Accessories
Once you have an idea of the dress you want, it’s time to figure out your shoes and accessories! Remember: less is more. If you plan on having a spectacular, sparkly dress with tons of details, then minimal accessories is the way to go. On the other hand, if your dress is on the simple side, you can spruce it up with diamond jewelry and killer shoes. It’s all about balance, comfort, and creating a cohesive homecoming look.
Homecoming Hair & Makeup
To complete your look, you’re going to need to start thinking about your homecoming hair and makeup. Do you want to wear your hair down in loose curls, or rock a chic updo? The choice is yours, based on your personality and dress style of course. As far as makeup goes, decide if you want more of a natural or bold look. Will you do it yourself, or will you make an appointment with a professional? Decisions, decisions!
Your Homecoming Date
Last but not least, you should start thinking about your homecoming date. Do you plan on going with one person, or a group of friends? When will they ask you, or are you going to ask them? Start considering the group of friends you are going with so you can coordinate your look. You don’t want to wear the same dress as your best friend, or pick a color that your date hates!
