No girl wants to be made from of or have fingers pointed at her when they walk into the homecoming dance because their dress was to over-the-top or downright scary to look at. Here’s some homecoming dresses to avoid.
– Showing too much skin: a little skin is okay, but showing too much cleavage and having way too short of a dress can be hard for anyone to look at. You may have a great body with awesome assets, but sometimes leaving some body parts to the imagination is more appealing to others. Showing too much skin is deemed to be classless and rest assured your peers will be more put off by it than not. Think about how comfortable you are. If you’re tugging your dress down to cover your behind or yanking the bodice up so your boobs don’t fall out then that’s a huge sign – you are showing off too much skin!!
– Sparkle, glitter, twinkle- if you’re brighter than the Las Vegas strip and blinding people then you are wearing too many sequins. Having a sequin dress, handbag, sparkly shoes, glitzy jewelry you are on sparkle overload. Keep it simple. Choose a dress that has some sequins, but carry a handbag that doesn’t. A couple of items are great to have sparkle, but your entire attire should not have the sun reflecting off of it.
– Unique: you don’t want to walk into your homecoming dance and stand next to someone that has the same dress as you and looks even better in it than you. That’s devastating. Be unique and try shopping at vintage stores. A lot of dresses there are glamorous and coming back into style- another upside is they are a lot more inexpensive. Another option is making your own dress just like Molly Ringwald did in Pretty in Pink. She took a dress and revamped it to make it into the style that was all her own. She turned heads in a good way.
– Matching or Not Matching: you are a girl that loves purple, but that does not mean you go out and buy a purple dress, purple handbag and purple shoes. There are so many chances of you not being able to match the exact shade of purple which just makes people wonder “What was she thinking?” Mix it up a bit: match your handbag and shoes, but have your dress be a different color.
