Say yes to the (homecoming) dress with this style inspo
Homecoming is one of every girl's favorite fall traditions, from cheering on the football team on Friday night to sporting your school pride for spirit week. But the best part—the part we *all* look forward to—is the homecoming dance. After all, who doesn't love another excuse to don a super glam gown and dance the night away with your besties?
To help you pick the perfect dress, we've rounded up some of the loveliest looks. (Spoiler alert, they're all two-piece outfits...because two is better than one, natch.) Peep them below—and if you're a daring DIYer, learn how to make your own with Simplicity. Best-dressed list, here you come.
Making your own dress is not only totally admirable but also means you won't have a "who wore it best?" moment when you show up to the dance...because your OOTD is 100 percent one of a kind. From crafting queen to homecoming queen, perhaps?
Lace + flowers =
spring homecoming. A semi-sheer crop top and strappy black heels add a little edge to a super femme frock.
David's Bridal, $120
For the girls who just can't decide between a maxi or a mini, try a showstopper that hits just below the knee. The on-trend length combined with pretty pleats, an elegant envelope clutch and head-to-toe hue gives off *major* belle of the ball vibes.
TBH, you can never have too much glitz and glam when it comes to your homecoming dress. Pair a blinged-out bralette with a sleek, satiny skirt to balance it all out, then go bold with your baubles.
Prom Girl, $99
Treat this skin-toned stunner like a blank canvas—you can keep it classy with basic black heels and gold hoops or add a playful touch with bright accessories. The options are endless.
Who said long gowns are *only* for prom? Uh, not us. Let your floor-length frock do the talking by keeping your hair and makeup simple (an elegant low pony will do).
Forever 21, $68
Pops of peekaboo lace make this pick pretty and playful. To seriously sparkle, slip into shimmery shoes and grab an equally eye-catching clutch on the way out the door.
