What party dresses work best for fancy homecoming dresses?

Formals are a fun chance to get dressed up and pick out a fancy dress for the occasion. There’s usually two opportunities to dress up during the school year: Homecoming in the Autumn and Prom in the Spring can bookend the academic year. Some schools also add a Winter Formal to the calendar.


Fancy homecoming dresses can be long or short. There aren’t really any hard and fast rules. Longer styles are generally more formal, but it’s better to think about what dress shapes will flatter your figure and make you feel the most confident. Some choices to consider:

  • A flared skirt with an a-line silhouette can be a universally flattering shape and is popular for party dresses.
  • A peplum dress has a ruffle at the waist that can help to balance the waist against the shoulders and hips.
  • A form-fitting and body-hugging dress can show off and flatter curves or an hourglass figure.

How can I choose between my options for fancy homecoming dresses?

Has the organizing committee set a theme for the homecoming dance? Are there any significant traditions around homecoming at your school? If it’s going to be your first homecoming, don’t feel shy about asking around to get a feel of what to expect.


Whether you’re going with a date or with friends, you may want to consider what your date or the others in your friend group are wearing - whether to coordinate or if you want to be sure to stand out.


Since the Homecoming Dance is a school event, you’ll have to consider any dress code rules imposed by your school – whether that’s about dress length, neckline styles, or shoulder straps. But thankfully, there are so many options for fancy homecoming dresses. So it won’t be too hard to find the perfect dress for you that will also work for the chaperones and won’t get you sent home.
