Should homecoming dresses be short or long?

The decision is ultimately up to you if you want to wear a short or long dress to homecoming. If you’re struggling to choose, ask a few of your closest friends at school to see what type of dresses they’re wearing. Maybe their outfits will give you some fresh ideas, or you might want to try something different altogether!

You should also consider your homecoming theme. If your theme is more formal, then you may want to opt for a longer dress. Something more casual may merit ditching ball gowns for something a bit shorter.

Short homecoming dresses

Short homecoming dresses are a great option for a semi-formal event. They’re fun and flirty, and come in a variety of styles from a fitted cocktail dress to a fit-and-flare ensemble.

Midi-length homecoming dresses

Midi-length dresses are the perfect combination of elegance and playfulness. These dresses can be fitted or flowy, showcasing an hourglass silhouette.

Long homecoming dresses

Long homecoming dresses are perfect for a more sophisticated venue. With flowy or fitted options, you’ll arrive at homecoming looking red carpet ready.

Homecoming dresses with asymmetrical hem

If you can’t decide whether you want to go in a short or long dress, why not meet in the middle? A homecoming dress with an asymmetrical hem is short in the front and long in the back, making a formal yet unique look. (Plus, you’ll show off your shoes!)

How formal should a homecoming dress be?

The formality of your homecoming dress depends on your school’s dress code and your own personal taste. Typically, homecoming is less formal than prom, so it’s not uncommon to hear it referred to as a semi formal occasion. Homecoming dresses come in a variety of styles, from a frilly cocktail dress to a flowy midi dress or a fitted full-length gown.

Homecoming is a semi-formal event, so your dress can be anything from a cocktail dress to a flowy midi dress or a fitted full length gown. Whichever you choose, opt for a dress that shows off your unique personality and style.
