Homecoming is an event to revive the school and college spirit when the former students meet the freshmen. For the alumni it is not very difficult to decide what to wear, because their dress usually represents what they are doing, but the case is different for the freshmen. Most freshmen are very excited about it and they survey a lot to buy something special to wear on the occasion. Students visit departmental stores, low cost markets and discount sales to check all the latest styles. Freshmen do not have a lot of experience and money to buy dresses for these special events at school and college. In addition to that, they are quite excited about the homecoming event as well. Here is how you can buy the perfect dress for this event.
First of all, do not be hasty. Look at all the options before making a decision. Every school has a different concept for the homecoming event. Some of them keep a very formal dress code while the others encourage casual attire. Thus, you need to consider the requirements of your institution as well. To buy the right homecoming dress, you need to be well aware of the latest fashion. Have a look at what your friends are buying. In addition to that, keep an eye on what celebrities are wearing. This is because fashion is what celebrities wear.
If you school has a formal dress code, look at the dresses made of satin or silk. Your dress should have the right length. Formal dresses are mostly gowns that fall below the knees. However, if you do not want to wear a gown, you can opt for a skirt or a short dress that is above the knees. The next step is picking the right color. You will notice that most of your class mates would be going for black or white. It is good to think differently. Apart from black and white, maroon, light pink and dark green are also good options for homecoming dresses.
In my opinion, wearing printed dresses is not a good idea. This is because printed dresses do not look formal. Thus, select a shade for a nice looking single colored dress. You can always add a frill or a border of a different color so that the dress can look more colorful. However, do not select a very sharp shade for the frill. Go for something which matches with the base color of the dress. If you have a blue colored dress, use purple or light green for the frill.
One of the best ways is to select a theme for the event. You can decide among your friends to all dress up in dresses from the 70’s or the 30’s. This gives a very nice feel to the entire event and everyone goes home with something to tell.
