Homecoming 2010 Trends

Homecoming 2010 is just around the corner, and a new stock of homecoming dresses from our designers is already available or on pre-order status.  Brand new styles, a fresh color palate, and bold silhouettes have us buzzing with excitement.  Follow this year’s homecoming trends for an unforgettably fashionable event!

The IT Fit

While both the short and long dresses are looking amazing, the trend is definitely leaning toward shorter styles.  Compact, structured silhouettes are taking center stage, and dramatic ruche patterns provide just the right finishing touch for texture.  The bandage look remains chic, so expect a lot of strappy, wrapped-up short sheaths.  Super feminine a-line minis and ruffled party skirts float and flutter into view, and the long dresses are draped and flowing.

Color Palate

Subdued color with muted and metallic washes offer a distinctly fall mood this year.  Vibrant golden-yellow hues rush the scene and have us taking a deep, refreshing breath.  Gold and copper are a big hit and dominate in shiny sequins, foiled fabrics, and beading.  Floral prints get a gorgeous autumnal update, with rose patterns still lingering on from this spring.


A lot of black, short dresses, and powerful curves give this year’s Homecoming a sophisticated cocktail-party feel.  And while other Fall 2010 trends are leaning on the subdued side, Homecoming dresses emerge decidedly edgy, allowing you to break up any wardrobe monotony you may be suffering from.    

Finishing Touches

This year’s dresses create a crowd-stopping hush on their own and cast accessories in an essential and playful supporting role.  Powerful heels, chic clutches, and minimal yet opulent jewelry complement this season’s hottest styles.  Say goodbye to summer’s breezy and messy hair styles and opt for a tight updo with pin curls or a voluminous pompadour instead.  And, just like in years past, confidence is by far the most attractive accessory.  Own it, ladies!
