What Color V-neck Homecoming Dresses to Choose For Homecoming 2013? The style choices for the 2013 Homecoming year are by now quite clear. There's the classic Princess Gown; strapless, nipped in at the waist and A-line to the floor. The Slinky; really suits a hour glass figure hugging the body at the waist, gathering in around the knees and fanning out in a fish tail to the floor and the current favorite - the Short and Flirty; a take on the princess gown, but as the name suggests, way above the knee line!
So once you've selected your style - what about the color? The obvious thing to say is that it all depends on your own hair and eye color and Homecoming Night is not the time to abandon the fashion principles you've worked to all these years! If green was never your color - it isn't going to be now!! However, as with high street fashion, there are key trends you can work with
The catwalk colors last autumn divided into two camps. Firstly, a range of pastel colors which are particularly suited the Princess Gown style. Top marks here go to Fuchsia and Yellow which really made an impact. The pastel pallet allows the designers to go to town on the detailing with diamante and beading clearly evident on the corset part of the dress. Lacing at the back was also a favorite device
The second color trend went in completely the opposite direction with dark, bold colors on offer. Midnight Blue and Purple where both crowd pleasure and manufacturers reported that they had sold more black Homecoming dresses than ever before. Unusual, as young Homecoming goers tend to option the lighter colors that suit a young complexion...
This darker color trend may follow in the wake of the more sophisticated and overtly sexy styles that have seen around for the past couple of years as finally the Homecoming dress moves out of its heritage 'bridesmaid' zone and joins the ranks of the 'red carpet' for 2013
For the more adventurous Homecoming goer there are choices outside of the classic block colors. A number of designers have introduced pattern and floral fabrics as bold alternatives. Typically the style of gown used to show these designs to best advantage is the floor length halter neck. There are some great black and white animal prints and bold geometrics. The florals use large images of flowers often set against stark white backgrounds. The advantage to these styles is that they are not classic Homecoming and can easily be worn for other occasions be that a family summer wedding or dinner out with the man you met at your Homecoming!
