Ways to Choose a Cheap Homecoming Dress

The tradition of homecoming dates back to the early 1900′s; the first celebration of homecoming was started by the University of Missouri in 1911. In effort to get more spectators to a rival football game, the university recruited their alumni to cheer on the team. Shortly thereafter, the university added in bonfires and parades to celebrate.

Modern homecoming activities now include a formal dance. High school girls choose dresses that make a statement. Additionally, many will get their hair professionally styled. The fashion trend for homecoming 2011 will be examined.

Homecoming 2011 Dresses

Traditionally, the homecoming court princesses and queens wear longer evening gowns. For those outside of court, the theme is short and sassy. Playful cheap cocktail dresses with unique features will be the trend to follow.

One dress by Sherri Hill combines tulle with sequined bodice. The tulle states fun, while the sequined bodice states sassy. Her theme continues through most of her homecoming dress designs this year. Another dress example is a colorful, almost tie-dye skirt print with another sequined bodice. Again, playful yet elegant is the statement.

For girls who are looking for dresses with less fullness, Hannah S Short makes more cocktail dresses, which are the best choices. Her taffeta dress mixes the same fun and sassy theme with the sequined trim on top and rosettes trim on the bottom. Alyce Designs has a charcoal dress that weaves chiffon, sequin, metallic, beading, and lace materials to create a look that is flirty and dramatic at the same time.

Homecoming 2011 Hairsyles

The hairstyle for homecoming needs to compliment the dress. Girls wearing longer evening gowns should tie their hair up, if possible. This presents an elegant, formal look. For a sense of uniqueness, add some braids, curls, or rhinestone hair pins.

For the short dress as previously described, girls should wear a hairstyle that is fun and sassy. Consider a messy up to do, extensions with a wavy texture, or adding vibrant colored clip-ins. With this style of dress the hairstyle can be as unique as the person.
