What is Homecoming?

First of all what is homecoming and why it is so important? Homecoming is an informal annual tradition that is held in late September, beginning of October, and involves the celebration of welcoming back former graduates and students. This traditional party is deeply loved and supported in many high schools, colleges, and even churches in the United States and Canada. Usually, there are many different festive activities and cultural programs prepared for the attendants: parade, picnic, football game, dress-up days, and, of course, a homecoming dance.

A Perfect Homecoming Dress

The majority of high schools and colleges ask the attendant to dress in either formal or semi-formal attire. Semi-formal attire for ladies, who attended homecoming dance, can wary from a dressy suit to a flirty cocktail dress. You can make a choice according to your style preference and your personal goal for the evening. Most of the school have similar dress codes, but  you should still check out the official rules of formal or semi-formal attire before picking your outfit. But there are a few classic dresses, that you can wear to a homecoming dance, without fear of dress-code violation.

For example, you can never go wrong with a classic red homecoming dress. There are so many gorgeous options, that will make everyone envy! Classic red color compliments every skin tone, you just need to find a shade, that will look the best on you. Add few subtle accessories, a hair jewelry, that will hold your locks together and a pair of nude pumps to finish your homecoming outfit. By the way, blondes look especially beautiful in red!

A floor-length black dress is another classic for any formal occasion. When in doubt, always wear a black floor-length dress. It is easy to style and wear, it is very beautiful and sexy and you can wear a black dress to any other formal occasion once again. A small black hand-bag, lace heels and elegant veil will accomplish this classic look.

And a third classic option for a homecoming dance is a long dress in light shades. Pastel light colors, cream, and beige look incredible on girls with tanned and dark skin. One of my favorite light colors for homecoming is a romantic blushing pink. This color is perfect for the begging of the fall season when the weather is still is warm enough. 

Lots of love,
