A dressy dress sort of day – Homecoming


As I watch the posts of kids heading back to school one of the first major “school” holidays in the US is homecoming. While when I was in high school Homecoming was less formal I am always happy to see the great dresses and super formal events and the kids beaming with pride for their events.
A quick search will give a myriad of dresses and of course – being a few years (okay 15+ out of high school) I had no idea what is in fashion this year. It seems there are some tasteful options as well as risque option as well. But fun is what I think is what girls today want in a dress.

is super cute! I’m sure I would have had a much better time finding dresses if the internet was available when I was in high school! So many options!

I love this as a potential homecoming dress. It has a retro feel and is classy as well as funky.

Homecoming dresses 2014 – the options are endless. Now I must ask – is there a 30-something year old homecoming I can be invited to? It may give me some inspiration to exercise! :)


What did you wear to homecoming? OR do you have a kid you’re helping find an outfit for homecoming?

    I’ve seen the watermelon a-line dress (less formal) on girls this past year. Very “in style”. But I really like the 2nd one, very cute!
    Homecoming…..I really can’t remember what I wore. But I do remember the dancing!!! lol

  2. We didn’t have homecoming at our school… But that was so many years ago most of you weren’t born yet.

  3. sarah clegg says:

    we dont have a homecoming is it like a prom? we have those though i missed out on mine :( wish we did though- i love those dresses!!

      Homecoming is generally a week surrounding sporting event “home” games. The school may have special dress up days (like 80s day, zombie day)…. then after a football game on friday the week ends with a formal dance.

  4. Annemarie says:

    I love the watermelon dress very flattering and the color is gorgeous.

  5. Sarah Bailey says:

    We don’t have homecoming over here so it all seems very odd to me – nice way to welcome in the ‘new school year’ though.

  6. Akhil says:

    Nice dresses….though i don’t know about women wears haha but i think these looks great :)

  7. Rosey says:

    My daughter went to junior prom last year and surprised me by picking out a dress we both liked, relatively quickly. :)

  8. WOW my homecoming was so long ago I can’t even remember LOL but I love that beige and brown dress!

  9. lisa says:

    I didn’t go to homecoming and i dont have any daughters, but I love the older ball gown styles as a formal dress. Im in my 30s as well, so if you find a homecoming for us, im in =)

  10. Those are so cute! I can’t wait til my girls get older! I just hope that we don’t end up having some massive argument over dresses…bc they will not be going in something that’s barely there lol

  11. I love the second dress. I need a dress for an up coming formal I will have to visit the website to see if they have anything more mature and in my size.

  12. My daughter is looking for dresses this year. She’s a senior in High School so this is coming up very soon for us.

    I love the one from dress first.com. Very nice. Homecoming was a long time ago for me and I honestly can’t remember what I wore. Now prom, I remember because I have pictures of that and I was on prom court.

  14. Homecoming or not, I need that second dress! I love it!

  15. Noor Unnahar says:

    Homecoming is always so special . Bling bling is necessary in dress , be a chic.

  16. We didn’t have a Homecoming dance here in NYC when I was in H.S. but I can remember how much time went into picking prom dresses that were unique and flattering.

  17. Michelle H says:

    I wore a short sequiny black dress that really was way to old and sophisticated for me. But it’s the one I set my mind on. The only one left was a size 16 and my mom still yes. My aunt had to alter down to a size 4. That was really nice of her, but ridiculous when I think back on it…

  18. T. Marie says:

    That second dress is the one. I just LOVE it so much. I didn’t do homecoming my mom never saw the point in it.

  19. I definitely love that first dress from dressfirst.com! So pretty and not risque at all! Beautiful!

  20. I like the last dress, classy and funky!

  21. melanie says:

    I didn’t have a Homecoming. We didn’t have that at our school. It was done away with several years before I got there. But these dresses are beautiful. I would have loved to have something like that.

  22. Corinne says:

    Our homecoming was more casual than this. My oldest daughter is 13 so I’m going to have to figure out in the next year or two what the current fashion is for homecoming so I can help her choose a dress!
