What’s Your Homecoming Style?
by Cassandra Morris
Homecoming dress hunting is a cinch when you know your signature style. Here’s how to find your perfect dress, based on your future plans.
The Next It Girl
You’re a social butterfly whose main incentive for finishing homework is so you can meet up with friends. When you’re not scoring invites to the best parties, you’re throwing them! This dress with its bright color, sequin and beading accents and pretty tulle, is the perfect fit for homecoming plus all those birthday, New Year’s and (soon enough!) college socials you’ll be invited to.
Future Style Blogging Sensation
Trends are your thing. When you’re not setting them at school, you’re scouring style blogs and red carpet photos for the next big one. This dress features long sleeves (which are huge for fall!), gorgeous lace texture and sequin sparkle, plus a short flirty hem. You can say you wore it first.
An Upcoming Powerhouse
Kelly Cutrone is your idol and you’re totally moving to a big city after school is over. Work hard, play harder is your mantra… and you’re proud of it! Try on this fab style. It’s every serious New Yorkers favorite color and perfect for after-dark, but the sparkle says that you’re ready to have a good time no matter what!
The Budding Entertainer
If accepting a VMA for Best New Artist is in your future, you’ll need a diva dress that’s fit for the stage. This one has it all: sequins that will make you sparkle from every angle, a dramatic high-low hem, and a chiffon skirt that will flare out behind you when you’re making your entrance and exit. Be sure to pair this dress with some killer heels.
The World Traveler
Your town has been great and all, but you’re ready for some new scenery! You can totally see yourself taking trains around Europe for a year, or venturing to South America to see what you can find. This hanky hem is dreamy and wistful, while the sparkly beading at the waist says you’re ready for adventure.
