Homecoming is now fast approaching, and if you plan to attend your school’s festivities, you’ll need a hoco dress that is the best fit for you. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to keep things simple. That means minimal details, a streamlined look or a full block color. Simple homecoming dresses have many advantages, one being that you can easily re-wear them to other parties and events.
A simple homecoming dress still needs to make you feel beautiful and make a fashion statement. It’s possible to achieve all of this by opting for a sleek dress that still has one or two unique design elements that you love.
It should also sit well on your figure and hug your shape in just the right way. Make sure you try on a few styles until you meet your match! The fit is just as important as any design elements and is especially essential when you pick a relatively simple piece.
To help you choose a hoco dress that will look gorgeous for your dance and for any other events you want to attend, we’ve picked our top 5 faves. These dresses are all quite refined yet are still sexy and bold. They strike a balance between simple and fashionable to make them an amazing choice for homecoming.
Metallic tones are a huge trend for Fall/Winter 2019 and this silver sequin design is the perfect way to wear this fashion must-have to your homecoming.
Yes, it’s covered in sequins, so it’s not exactly super minimal. However, the sleek shape of this style is so unfussy. It includes spaghetti straps, a plunging neck, and an open back, with a bodycon skirt. The shape is all about flaunting your curves and a little skin too.
This gorgeous style will definitely make jaws drop, but it isn’t overly layered or complicated to wear. In fact, you’ll find this very comfy to dance the night away in. Furthermore, you should keep accessories low key to let the sequins remain the focus. That means black, white or nude are your best bets and you may already own the perfect heels or bag to complete this look.
