Best Long Homecoming Dresses

When dressing up for homecoming dance or dinner, it is understandable that you wish to look your best and steal the limelight from the crowd. While you go head over heels in deciding what to wear and how to accessorize it so you look your best, don’t get so caught up in the thinking process that you end up looking overtly conscious and stiff at the event.. Before you head to Promgirl, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord and Taylor, New York dress or Bloomingdale’s to purchase the most heavenly long homecoming dress, keep the following three basic things in mind to help you through the process:

There will be a lot of moving around

Your purchase should be based on the simple fact that this is not one of those events you spend sitting around in one place. You are going back to school which means there will be a lot of meeting up, catching up and moving around. So before you buy a mermaid long homecoming dress or an overly fitted two piece homecoming long dress, think again. This has to do with the fitting of the dress. It should be smart but at the same time, allow for easy and comfortable movement through the place.

You are going back to your school, not a wedding

If you were thinking of purchasing that sexy and too sparkly long homecoming dress, please remind yourself again that it is your school you are going back to, not a wedding. While there is nothing wrong with the dress itself, all it has to do with is the nature of the event. School is all things innocent; this element should be transcended into your dress as well. Go for something that is elegant yet has that school-girl cuteness to it also. Going for a long, belted two piece homecoming dress in pink or a black knee-long flared homecoming dress would be much better options.

Don’t be afraid to go bright

In the previous section, we told you to restrain in terms of style and sparkle. In this section, we are suggesting you to go bold, but in terms of color. This is one event where, unlike the weddings, you have the liberty to wear bold and bright colors since you are going back to school. Consider options such as lime yellow, coral, bright green or cobalt blue long homecoming dresses. In broader terms, you could look into the color palette of citrus shades in long homecoming dresses.

Since such dresses are not worn as often as other everyday dresses, it is better to look for discounts and sales on long homecoming dresses beforehand so you have a chance of getting hold of a great deal. The fashion stores like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth avenue, Bloomingdales, Promgirl and Overstock should be on your checklist as such.

While the origins of Homecoming are mainly in US and Canada, the tradition has seeped into certain Asian and Middle Eastern countries as well over the years; these basic ‘things to remember’ are quite broad and can be taken help from, no matter the country you may be attending the homecoming dinner or dance.
