The annual Homecoming Dance is tomorrow night, and it will be the student’s first chance to get together, dance the night away, and show off their style.
On September 9-16, in Manhattan, the infamous Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows gave insight on a few trends that will be popular for this year.
The cocktail dress (a short dress falling to just about over the knee) has been in style for many years already, however this year there are fresh new takes on the classic. One way is using bright and bold
colors that will definitely make you stand out. Another fun twist is having texture in the dress, such as pleats or ruffles. Finally, a dress with sharp tailoring and geometric lines gives off a classy vibe to your style.
About a fourth of the dresses seen on the runway, however, took on a fun and youthful appearance with the use of patterns. Big, bold patterns really make a statement and catch your eye in a sea of solid colors. If you really want to be adventurous, try a pattern in a bright color to give your style an extra pop.
As for accessories, try to keep it to a minimum. While you’re dancing they can become bothersome or misplaced, so it’s better to keep it simple. When it all comes down to it, you just want to have fun and be comfortable in what you’re wearing.
With these tips you’ll have a “fresh off the runway” look and be completely fabulous!
