Homecoming Dresses

Everything you need to know about Homecoming Dresses

There is little that excites a young woman more than the opportunity to “look like a million” in a stunning, colorful, feminine and beautiful Homecoming Dress. It means everything to her because “Homecoming at School” is one of the most important days of her very young life.

Visit any college campus around the time of the Homecoming Dance and you’ll see hundreds of coeds “dressed to the nines” in Homecoming Dresses that fit every price range… are made of every material imaginable … are in a dazzling array of colors, some pastel, others white, still others in bolder, more unusual colors or patterns … and are in a dizzying array of styles – strapless, very short, long like a gown, off one shoulder, daringly backless, the options are endless.

Homecoming DressesThe fact is Homecoming Dresses are part of the American college culture … a very important part that is meaningful to just about every coed who attends a college or university. And, while some coeds are able to afford remarkably expensive Homecoming Dresses (because their families are wealthy), others need to be much more practical and creative.

Coeds with a sense of style and design generally find it easy to “look like a million” even though their budget for a Homecoming Dress might have been $100 or less. In the end, it is never about how much money one spends for a Homecoming Dress, it is about how you look in the dress you wear … any dress. And that is as much about attitude and self-confidence as it is about the cost of the Homecoming Dress.

When you consider that Homecoming Day and the Homecoming Dress a coed wears (in order to be seen) is one of the most important days of her life, next to her wedding day, it’s easy to imagine how much time and effort goes into the selection of the most appropriate Homecoming Dress … the dress that will be most flattering and draw rave reviews, compliments and appreciative glances and stares from the young men on campus.

This year, many coeds are choosing very short dresses, above the knee, in stunning solid colors like midnight black with matching shoes, of course. The shoes feature spike heels so it’s worth wondering how the coeds wearing them will be able to “dance the night away.” Most likely, those high heeled shoes will come off as soon as the music starts.

But, it’s the Homecoming Dresses, not the shoes that will grab the spotlight when the Homecoming Dance begins. And this year, as is true for every other year, coeds will be competing, subconsciously, to be the girl whose dress and overall appearance gets the most attention.

It’s almost like a contest in which every competitor goes all out to come in first. Of course, there is no “official competition,” just a friendly, unspoken one that pits coeds against each other so that they can be the “Queen of the Dance” and give themselves an evening they’ll remember forever.
