Best Short Homecoming Dresses

So your 2016’s homecoming is going to take place in a week or two and you haven’t bought a gorgeous homecoming dress for yourself? Leaving shopping for the last minute can be really hectic and selecting an important dress in a hurry is not a good idea either. Since you don’t have much time now to do all the research, we have got a one stop guide for you to choose and style short homecoming dresses within a small span of time.

1.      What’s your body type?

Homecoming is the perfect event to dress up and make heads turn with your size 0 figure but that definitely does not mean that you cannot look good if you are someone with a dress size 12, 13, 14 or 15. No matter skinny or fat, short or tall, you just have to figure out how the dress will highlight your best features.

2.      Choosing the right hemline

You can go for deep V-neck to draw attention to your smaller bust but if you are heavier on that area then try opting for a high neck style. However, you cannot overlook the importance of a hemline while choosing short homecoming dresses. We recommend going for an A-line style, because no matter what body type you are, an A-line shaped hemline will always work for you. Opt for a slim bodice that widens and starts to flow from the waist-line till the knees.

3.      What length to go for?

Whether it is the homecoming culture of England, Canada, Australia, Ireland or Europe, floor length dresses are really something to be drooled over, but remember it’s your homecoming and not an award function or your wedding. Moreover, short dresses are a perfect choice for petite and shorter women because they can easily achieve an illusion of height with a tea length homecoming dress paired with high heels. Choose a cute homecoming dress just a few inches above the knee length if you are someone with sharp legs otherwise go for a waterfall dress if you don’t want your heavy legs to pop out.

4.      Opt for colors that make you stand out

Since homecoming is more of a casual event, opting for a black short homecoming dress is a safe option. However, there are chances that your school fellows might also be wearing something black (an all-time favorite indeed). So in that case opt for soft colors such as a light pink strapless short homecoming dress or an aqua blue short homecoming dress with sleeves can also make you look equally stunning just as a black dress. While make sure to choose colors according to the season in which the homecoming event is going to take place be it summer, spring or winter.

5.      Finish the look with accessorizing

Once you are done with styling your dress according to the latest trends, cuts, hemline and colors. Last thing you have to do is add finesse to your homecoming dress by accessorizing it. Be it a long flowing gown or a sexy short homecoming dress; just remember to keep the jewelry and other accessories to minimal. See which type of heels will go well with your dress, pick everything carefully and make your look work out!
