2012 Popular Styles for Homecoming Dresses

2012 Popular Styles for Homecoming Dresses

Homecoming dresses are one of the highlights of the fall season for many of the girls who attend the dance (and the boys who take them!). Every fashion season brings new dress styles and elements to the forefront, and 2012 homecoming dress styles are no different. Here are a few of the trends that have made their way into homecoming dresses from top designers this year: Homecoming Dress Trends for 2012
  • One of the major differences between prom gowns and homecoming dresses is that dresses are typically longer for prom and shorter for homecoming — while this may not always be the case, it seems to remain true for the 2012 popular homecoming dress styles. Above the knee is the current style, but make sure your ideal dress meets your school’s dress code before making the purchase.
  • Form-fitting silhouettes are in vogue this season for homecoming, similar to the skinny jean fashion. Make sure you feel comfortable and look great in your homecoming dress — if it’s too snug or too loose, Promises Bridal and Formal Wear can make alterations so that it is a perfect fit.
  • Empire waists, also called cinched waists, are typically accompanied by an accent on the dress and are cinched at your natural waistline.
  • Sequins and other sparkly adornments add that missing glitz to your look and have definitely been hitting the homecoming dress scene this year.
  • For homecoming dances that aren’t so formal, vintage looks and busy patterns have been hitting the red carpet lately and are inspiring some homecoming dress designs.
  • Skinny straps are often in fashion, but long sleeves and one-shoulder styles are also available this season.
  • While not as prominent as the strictly short dresses, hi-lo homecoming and prom dresses are also making headway. Hi-lo is a style where the circular hemline is high in the front and hangs low in the back, often hanging to the floor in the back and above the knees in front for a gorgeous layered look to your dress. Whatever style you might be looking for to wear to the homecoming dance, or if you want to get a head start on looking for prom gowns, Promises Bridal and Formal Wear staff are up to date on the latest trends and we can help you find the dress that looks and feels perfect on you.
