On homecoming court? Going to prom? Need a dress? Well you came to the right place! Homecoming attire varies from region to region, leaving participants at a loss when it comes to homecoming gown shopping. Some schools do not require a formal dress, but maybe a business suit or even "Sunday" attire instead. Some do simplified formal dresses, while other schools have a tradition of formal and fancy frocks.
If your school requires a formal dress, you're in luck! Homecoming and prom dresses can be interchangeable. You should be able to shop with ease, there are tons of choices! When shopping for your homecoming dress, you must first decide what style suits you and your personality best. Ball gowns are one option where the gown has a full skirt reaching the floor and layer upon layer of tulle or lining to give the skirt a full appearance. Another option is mermaid (or trumpet) style. This is where the dress is fitted to the knees and then flares out to the floor. Hi-lo is another popular style. This dress is cut higher in the front normally in an oval shape showing from the knees down and the back is long. Then you have your traditional long-length dress. Long dresses can vary between skirt styles and bodice types. The long dress can have an a-line skirt, or straight skirt. The dress can have no slits, slits in the front, back, one side, or even both sides. After choosing your style, you need to decide if you want a train in the back or not. You should consider the venue for your homecoming soiree before you decide completely on the style. You wouldn't want to drag a train across the football field. Now lets move on to the fun part and decide what color you want, if you want a solid or a pattern.
Also, some schools require formal attire but in the form of cocktails. Cocktails allow ease of movement and shorter length gowns are perfect for any venue. Cocktails can also be used for both homecoming and prom dresses. Cocktails come in different lengths, like tea-length which falls about two inches above the ankle and short cocktails that hit mid-thigh. Wearing cocktails as homecoming and prom dresses allows you to experiment with accessories like cute shoes. You can do wrap-arounds where the strap wraps around the ankle or something super ornate, like oversized gems or cascading rhinestones. Also at CB's Limited we dye shoes to match your dress exactly. Having your shoes dyed adds uniqueness and creativity to your attire. So make a statement...pick the perfect shoes for your homecoming and prom dresses!
