Teen's fashion: Dress shopping guide for homecoming

The homecoming season is just around the corner. Many teenage girls do not know the difference between homecoming dresses and prom dresses. Thus, many girls fall to choose a suitable homecoming dress. The following are some ideas on how to choose a flattering homecoming dress.
Dress length
There are quite a few dress styles for you to choose from. If you compare the prom dresses with the homecoming dresses, you would realize that they are entirely different. Many people thought homecoming dresses are usually short. This is not true. There are plenty of long homecoming dresses which are in fashion as well. When you look at the latest homecoming dresses, you would often notice that long homecoming dresses are pretty popular as well.
Dress color
Since homecoming dances occur in the fall, you’ll be sure to see your classmates in earthy colors, such as olive and brown. These shades complement most skin tones, so they are often a safe bet. To ensure you stand out from the crowd at your homecoming dance, choose a homecoming dress with a bright color or bold pattern, like this La Femme dress. Neon shades, such as hot pink and fluorescent blue, are sure to make a statement, as well.

Dress style
Sometimes all you need to upgrade a dress from plain to dance-worthy is some sparkling fabric and a bold necklace to match. Pick a fabric with beads to make the dress a bit more formal. A one-shoulder dress style will give you a party dress that’s stylish but still comfortable to dance in. Teens who like vintage-style dresses will adore the Billie Jean Dress. Want to look fancy and elegant at the dance? The high-neck dress is your ticket! Sometimes a fancy skirt is all you need to put together a party-worthy outfit.
Dress fabric
Since homecoming takes place in fall, it’s the perfect time of year to ditch the florals and go a little richer with metallic tones, blacks and even animal prints. When making your selection, keep in mind that velvets, chiffon, and tulle fabrics are definitely the order of the day.
