5 Flattering Poses for Homecoming


Every girl dreams of looking fabulous at her homecoming dance. Weeks leading up to homecoming can be stressful, as you try to find the perfect date, the perfect hair and makeup, the perfect shoes, and of course, the perfect dress! As soon as you get your dress, it’s important to try it on, stand in front of a mirror, and experiment with different poses. Here are our five flattering poses for homecoming that you can try in different dresses!

One-Foot Forward

You’re the prettiest girl in the room, and don’t ever doubt that! If your dress has a slit on one side, put a leg out, place one hand on your waist, then pose. You’ll look gorgeous posing with a lot of confidence in your slit dress. Not to mention, it’s a great opportunity to show off your legs and killer shoes!

Cross-Legged Flattering Poses

The cross-legged pose works well on almost any kind of dress. Just put your right foot in front of your left foot and put both hands on the hip. Especially for an hourglass body type, this pose can complement it by highlighting the curves and making the waist look much slimmer.

Over The Shoulder

This pose is perfect for off-shouldered dresses, one-shouldered dresses, and dresses with must-see back details. To achieve it, look away from the camera then turn your head a little. As you face the camera, keep your chin slightly up so that your neck will still be visible in the picture.

Sitting Down Poses

Maximize the props around the area. If you’re going to take a photo sitting down, always remember to keep your feet close. Since you’re possibly wearing a cocktail dress, mind the position of your feet and knees so that you don’t look awkward. Show them your biggest smile, as if you and your partner have just won the Couple of the Night award!

Knee Bend Pose

If you’re going to wear a short dress, the knee bend is the pose for you. Put your hand on your waist, put your weight on your right foot, then slightly bend your knee. Don’t keep your feet too far from each other. Show off the amazing dress that you’re wearing and those pair of to-die-for heels.

Additional Tips For Homecoming Poses:

  1. Wear the most comfortable heels.
  2. Always carry a clutch bag or pouch.
  3. If you feel sweaty, retouch.
  4. Always flash your sparkling smile.
  5. Don’t forget to have fun!

The homecoming dress is the most important detail in every girl’s homecoming dance. It’s either you let the dress wear you down, or you wear it with pride. With these poses, you can find flattering angles that will highlight not only the beauty of your dress, but your body figure as well. Any dress you wear will be perfect as long as it is paired with confidence, and of course, your sweetest smile!
