An inspirational post on Homecoming dresses, because it is never too early to imagine ourselves in a big gown!
Get Prepped for Homecoming 2017*
You may be thinking – it’s not even Prom 2017 – how can I be thinking about what to wear for Homecoming 2017? It never hurts to be prepared and have an idea of the potential upcoming trends. By knowing what will be fashionable, you’ll be able, not only to predict what your classmates will be choosing as their Homecoming 2017 dress, but you’ll have a goodly amount of time to assess the different looks and find a dress that will best suit your body type and your own innate fashion sense.
One way you can be predictive yourself regarding Homecoming 2017 is to choose a dress shop that is so popular, it is constantly bringing in new styles and fashion, and not trying to unload seasons old stock. Sure, you may be able to find dresses at discount, but you’ll be very behind the curve. If there’s anything your average teenage girl does not want to be, it’s passé.

One thing you can assess right off the bat is the color you’d like to wear. For many, it’s instinct to go with black. While we’re not dissing black (it’s timeless, it flatters nearly everyone), it is a color that is best suited for care-free events. Even if you haven’t worn white since your First Holy Communion, white is a fresh, clean color and a white dress will likely be unique to your Homecoming.
For a look of purity and cleanliness, classic white homecoming dresses are great to try on. In fact, it’s like black in that it is a timeless and classic color. Wearing white might give you and your family a tiny glimpse into your future – and by your future, we mean, of course, your future wedding. No, we’re not jumping the gun, but it is a color many choose to wear on the most iconic and memorable of days.
Here are some 2017 Homecoming trends to consider:
- Streamer sleeves – we’re very excited about this one because this is a truly new style and not a rehash or a throwback. Well, if we’re being honest, it’s a bit of a throwback to the early 1970s, but that was so long ago, fashion forgot and now remembers. Think wide tulle bell sleeves, from shoulder to wrist. If you are a petite girl and worry about it overwhelming you, you can choose or opt for a 3/4 –sleeve or even an elbow-length sleeve. The key is to choose a fabric with lighter weight than your dress.
- Feathers – you’re light as a feather, you’ll fly like a bird when you walk into homecoming in a dress accented with feathers. A great example is these amazing dresses by Jasz Couture.
- If your school is more casual at Homecoming, you should absolutely check out this stunning Rachel Allan Short Jersey dress – it features beautiful accents, a flattering cut and a great design. It’s also a dress you’ll be able to wear post Homecoming.
- Capes – this is definitely a throwback look. Check your mother’s prom gown from her 1979 Homecoming dance. Choose one that just grazes your shoulders or one with more length and pizazz. Since Homecoming takes place in the fall, a little cape or capelet may prove practical, too! Light and sweet, this is a delicate accessory that will have you at the top of your class in fashion.
Hope you like another inspirational post on Homecoming. I love all these dresses. The only event where I can dress this way is weddings and believe it or not, I have never been to one!*Post written in partnership of Mediabuzzer
