Homecoming is a very special time if you are a student. It is a celebration of the school you are attending. Traditionally, the year after graduation, the alumni of the school returns “home” to see the campus, reunite with old friends and reminisce about the good times you had while a student. Homecoming happens in the Fall and usually coincides with a sports game, usually football. The celebrations start at the beginning of the week and end with a dance during the weekend. The dance is just for the students, and is open to every grade. At some schools, the dance is just as important as Prom, and oftentimes just as formal. Some students reserve this occasion with their significant other, or keep it between a group of friends. Whether or not you choose to spend the dance with your friends or a special someone, you always want to look your best.
First thing you have to do is find the dress. This dress can be just as dazzling as a prom dress, but instead of a full length gown, you can get away with one that is shorter. If you really want to show off your school spirit, pick a dress in one of your school colors.
Next, choose your shoes. Heels are a must for fancy school dances. Peep toe kitten heels are a classy choice, or you can go with something more daring like a stiletto. Just make sure that they are comfortable enough to walk around and dance in.
Third, choose your fashion jewelry. The easiest way to achieve balance is to pick ONE statement piece. If you wear a small crown or tiara in your hair, do not wear other chunky pieces. If you wear a statement necklace, wear a pair of pearls or gold studs as earrings.
Consider your purse to be one of your accessories. Small dainty clutch purses are perfect for these occasions. They are able to hold the essentials like your phone, lipstick, car keys and a bit of cash. Be sure to choose one that compliments the color and style of your dress.
Lastly, your date will bring a corsage for you to wear. Today, corsages are worn on the wrist instead of pinned to the dress. If you are wearing a bracelet, make sure it is not too distracting, otherwise it will compete with your beautiful flowers.
Homecoming is a great way to celebrate your school spirit and have a great time with your friends. Make it a memorable evening by looking your best!
