Homecoming is the first significant event of the school year. Some fashion trend ideas will assist in preparing for the dance.
The tradition of homecoming dates back to the early 1900's; the first homecoming was started by the University of Missouri in 1911. In effort to get more spectators to a rival football game, the university recruited their alumni to cheer on the team. Shortly thereafter, the university added in bonfires and parades to celebrate.
Modern day homecoming activities now include a formal dance. High school girls choose dresses that make a statement. Additionally, many will get their hair professionally styled. The fashion trend for homecoming 2012 will be examined.
Homecoming 2012 Dresses
Traditionally, the homecoming court princesses and queen wear longer evening gowns. For those outside of court, the theme is short and sassy. Playful cocktail dresses with unique features will be the trend to follow.
One dress by Sherri Hill combines tulle with sequined bodice. The tulle states fun, while the sequined bodice states sassy. Her theme continues through most of her homecoming dress designs this year. Another dress example is a colorful, almost tie-dye skirt print with another sequined bodice. Again, playful yet elegant is the statement.
For girls who are looking for dresses with less fullness, we make more form-fitting cocktail dresses. Her taffeta dress mixes the same fun and sassy theme with the sequined trim on top and rosettes trim on the bottom. Alyce Designs has a charcoal dress that weaves chiffon, sequin, metallic, beading, and lace materials to create a look that is flirty and at the same time dramatic.
Homecoming 2012 Accessories
Accessories pull outfits together. With the homecoming dress girls should wear large, chunky jewel-toned bracelets. Look for bracelets with multiple colors that accent the dress, like the " Megan Multi-Colored " bracelet that sells for $23.
Because the dresses this year are so short, the legs and shoes are going to be accentuated. For the legs a great accessory is a tan. For an quick tan try sunless tanners or bronzers. Strappy high heels for the feet will finish the outfit.
Homecoming 2012 Hairsyles
The hairstyle for homecoming needs to compliment the dress. Girls wearing longer evening gowns should wear their hair up, if possible. This presents an elegant, formal look. For a sense of uniqueness, add some braids, curls, or rhinestone hair pins.
For the short dresses as previously described, girls should wear a hairstyle that is fun and sassy. Consider a messy updo, extensions with a wavy texture, or add vibrant colored clip-ins. With this style of dress the hairstyle can be as unique as the person.
Homecoming 2012 is going to be represented by bold-colored, short Gold Homecoming Dresses. The accessories will play an active role in enhancing the dress' features. The statement that will be made at homecoming will be "girls just wanna have fun."
