Homecoming Fashion 2012

Hey girls, it's that time of year again...HOMECOMING! If you're like me and you don't get to have a formal homecoming then just enjoy reading this post and imagining what you would wear! If you do have a formal dance then here are some great dress and accessory ideas. 

  1. Homecoming represents the easy going time that is football season. Try to stick with loose fitting dresses that hang right above the knee. Longer dresses are made for dances in the winter so try to avoid those.
  2. Always pick a dress that is fitted to your style and shape. If you don't feel comfortable in the dress then you won't shine on the dance floor..:) 
  3. If a dress says "bubble" always avoid it. For Example...dresses with this bubble skirt were very popular last year, but this year dresses with straighter skirts are in! 

Here are some great dress's and accessory's!
