High school girls, looking for something to keep you occupied this summer? How does shopping sound?! Just as soon as summer begins, it ends, which means the start to another school year is right around the corner. Don’t fret. The start of a new school year means it’s time for homecoming! So don’t let summer pass you by without being prepared for your homecoming dance. Take some time over your summer vacation and get to work…shopping! Homecoming is the first event of the school year, so start the year off on a good note by looking and feeling your best at this event. Jovani, a top women’s designer, offers the most elegant dresses and gowns for Homecoming 2010. Jovani’s Homecoming Collection includes a variety of floor-length gowns, cocktail dresses, vibrant colors and styles. No matter your style preference or figure, Jovani has a perfect design for you! As you lie by the pool or on the beach, take time to think about the type of style you’re going for this homecoming. Flip through the pages of magazines to see what top celebrities are wearing, and gain inspiration from their looks. Whatever Jovani style you choose, you will look gorgeous and glamorous no matter what! Their signature beading and other detail embellishments make their gowns unique and head-turning. Jovani’s gowns span over many different styles from classic, to super elegant, modern and trendy. Exposed zippers, studded embellishments, animal print and bandage materials, add a modern twist to their designs. A classic, chiffon halter gown instantly turns trendy when it is covered in an exotic animal print with studded detail along the neckline. Nothing is more elegant than a sparkly gown. Jovani adds unique bead pattern and sequin detail that make ordinary gowns exquisite. Long silk gowns or taffeta cocktail dresses are instantly elegant with sparkly brooches or a sequin ribbon belts. If classic and simple is more your style, Jovani has many gowns to fit this look. From floor-length, to body-hugging gowns in black, red, forest green or royal blue, Jovani makes a classic gown look fashion-forward and up-to-date. Chose a halter gown with a deep-v neckline or exposed back to bare a hint of skin. Classic doesn’t mean boring, so choosing a gown with a simple silhouette and no embellishments can still be a head-turning beautiful gown. Be mindful of the look you want before going shopping. While you can fun trying on many different styles, not having an idea of what you’re looking for may make you feel overwhelmed. Know what colors flatter your skin tone, and think about how you will be photographed in the style. Jovani has a magical dress for all shapes and sizes. Choose a dress you are comfortable in, and one that you will not have to adjust. If you have a bigger bust, opt for a dress with straps rather than strapless. You don’t want to be pulling your dress up all night or have to worry about it falling too low. If you would like to hide your midsection, a gown with an empire-waist will suit you best. A gown with embellishments right under the bust will draw attention to the top of your midsection, the smallest part of your body, which is very flattering and a good distraction from your midsection. If you are short and petite, a mini cocktail dress will appear to elongate your legs, while a floor-length gown may be too much material for your body. Taller girls should take advantage of their height and wear a fitted mermaid gown with a slit or asymmetrical hem to show off a hint of legs. Jovani pieces have been seen on celebrities and are designed to make whoever wears their gowns shine! Homecoming is a time to make a statement and start the year off right. Jovani will help you feel like a princess and have a memorable night. Visit www.jovani.com to find a retailer closest to you. Use your free time this summer to be productive and prepare for homecoming.
