This satin floral dress has so much to love about it. The asymmetrical folded neckline is so unique. It folds beautifully on the bodice to create a sculptural look that is also very body complementing.
The navy satin fabric has a high sheen which means it will hit the light on the dance floor. The light pink print features large flowers with an abstract twist. The tiered skirt echoes the asymmetrical neckline as it wraps downward across the body.
This stunning strapless dress is so easy to wear and will suit any body type. The fit and flare shape means your waist is the focus point, while hips and stomach are covered. That makes it just so universally flattering.
Dress this up with matching pink heels and a textured pink clutch that coordinates with the print. Add loose wavy hair and add a short necklace for a hint of sparkle. A light pink lipstick and a few layers of mascara is a natural yet elegant beauty look.
Want to opt for something more figure-flaunting? This green floral print dress is all about showing off your killer bod. The design hugs your curves in such a beautiful and still subtle way.
From the front, the plunging neckline dips low in a pretty v-shape that’s easy to wear. The front is seamed to create the most tailored fit possible. From behind, this design looks like a two piece due to a large back cut-out.
The dark print is elegant and timeless. Splashed on this modern silhouette and you have an unbeatable style that’s ready to shine at Homecoming. We love how classic this print is, meaning you can re-wear this dress to another occasion too.
To style this design, opt for a pair of silver minimal heels and a silver bracelet. Add a mirror clutch or embellished bag design. A plum lipstick is a daring makeup choice, or go simple with a charcoal hued smokey eye.
This plunging v-neck short dress combines florals with velvet. The fitted bodice is composed from a deep red velvet. This plunges dramatically at the front and back, while being held in place with a sheer panel.
The skirt half of this look flares in wide, voluminous pleats from the waist. The unique and colorful floral pattern juxtaposes against the sleek velvet. It creates a clashing and contrasting look that is still so sophisticated.
Combined, this powerful Homecoming look is both body-flattering and fashion-forward. Adding velvet gives this otherwise classic floral dress an on-trend twist. The amazing form-fitting cut just closes the deal!
Pair this design up with white heels (strappy if possible) and a white clutch with leather florals. Add a fishtail braid for further texture and opt for a deep red manicure to reflect the bodice’s color. Contoured makeup with a gold highlight is a must.
This bandeau style blue and white dress is the perfect end-of-summer option. If you’ve still got a summer tan and want to show it off at Homecoming, relish the opportunity! The gorgeous blue and white print has us feeling tropical Cuban vibes.
The edges of this design are all rimmed with blue and black stripes, creating graphic punctuation. This draws the eye to your waist and to the focal points of this design. The swirling print is imaginative and still so elegant.
With a simple fit and flare style, this dress sticks to our favorite no-fail silhouette. That includes a structured bodice and flared skirt with wide pleats to ensure it moves gracefully. The simplicity of the neckline makes this so effortless too.
Team this up with an on-trend choker necklace and match this to your shoe color (opt for neutral white or black). Play up the summery vibes with a straw clutch and sun-kissed skin. A bronzed eye and nude lipstick is the perfect makeup option.
There’s something incredibly fashion-forward about this graphic printed dress. The print works with the shape of your body, following its natural shape to create an original look that is body-form. The abstract print is perfectly symmetrical but changes from top to bottom.
This multi color piece has a classic sweetheart neckline, tailored waist and flared skirt. Its classic structure allows the statement print to be the sole focal point. However, that silhouette is endlessly flattering even on its own.
This dress even has two pockets, perfect for striking a pose at Homecoming. The pretty colors chosen will suit any skin tone and are easy to match your accessories to. The best part is that you can wear this dress again to any party or event.
We suggest pairing this dress with a striking fuchsia lipstick and elegant chignon hair-bun. Match your nails with a strong pink or purple manicure. Then simply add gold heels and a gold clutch.
