Homecoming usually consists of finding a date, a group of friends, flowers, tickets, and most importantly, finding the perfect outfit.

A popular way to dress up for Homecoming’s semi-formal dress attire is by adding pizzazz with sequins. With the variety of lighting in the homecoming setting, sequins will be eye-catching from every angle.





If you are looking for a simple dress that isn’t too simple, neon is the way to go. Not only are these bright colors intriguing to the eyes, but they are also perfect for complementing the remains of your summer tan.


Puff sleeve 

The puffy sleeves trend has appeared in many summer and spring styles, this year it is expanding to dresses. Whether the sleeve is mesh, sheer, or cloth, this is a super cute way to add dimension to your dress.




Florals are a typical style for spring, however this year they are being carried over to any warm month. Flowers are a design to show off personality and feminism. The individuality of the floral pattern guarantees that your dress will not be the same as anyone else’s.





Halter neck is the newest trend on this list; although it has always been around, this year we are seeing more halter necks than ever before. Halter necks make any dress more unique and also accentuate the shoulders.



Cowl neck

Cowl necks had a huge popularity increase during The 2021 Homecoming, and that trend has carried over yet again this year. This unique neckline takes a simple and plain dress to the perfect balance of calm and unique. 





Asymmetrical styles started with one-shoulder dresses and have quickly expanded to anything asymmetrical. Adding asymmetrical straps, bows, lengths, or sleeves is a trendy way to make a simple dress more unique.
