Homecoming is one of the most exciting events of the school year. Starting in October, local high schools will be launching parades, pep rallies, and spirit celebrations in preparation of their homecoming football game, topping the week off with an incredibly memorable dance.
Sometimes, school events like these can inspire a bit of anxiety. We totally understand! While the homecoming dance is a very special night, it is no reason to put pressure on yourself. Your hair, makeup, and outfit don’t need to be too extravagant. Homecoming is about feeling cute, comfortable, and having a good time. Don’t worry – you’ll still have prom one day if you want to go all out.
With Peaches’ guide below, we hope you can gather some tips that may be valuable in preparation of the Homecoming dance. Have fun!
Homecoming Dress Shopping
Dress and shoe shopping is two things–fun and overwhelming. There are so many designs, patterns, and colors to choose from, but all that tulle and sparkles can send you into a tailspin. Since homecoming isn’t as formal as your first prom, keep these in mind for a less stressful day of shopping.
More often we see girls choosing strapless homecoming dresses. But be careful that it fits your upper frame, otherwise, you will be adjusting your dress all night.
Pick a length and cut that’s comfortable to dance and move in. A classy and short dress that falls just above the knees is formal enough & fun.
If you wear high heels, choose a shoe with a thicker heel and sole. This offsets the pressure when dancing, if you prefer not to get your dance on.
