💗 Four fresh homecoming dress ideas you’ll love 💗

Ready to see our top homecoming dress ideas? We won't make you wait any longer. No matter your body type or style, one of these dresses is bound to make you swoon.  

1. Tulle A-line dress with a fitted embellished bodice

For the ladies looking for homecoming dress ideas that flatter any body type, you can't go wrong with an A-line dress. The A-line silhouette features a fitted bodice and a skirt that flares at the waist, accentuating your natural hourglass shape. This dress takes the A-line silhouette up a notch. First, because the skirt is made of tulle, you add extra volume to this silhouette—making your waist look even smaller! And the fitted bodice is decorated in dazzling glitter, which will keep everyone's gaze on your shrinking waistline. (The designer of this dress definitely knew what they were doing!) While some sleeves and necklines are geared towards certain body types, these will look great on anyone! They add just the right amount of sex appeal, while making sure you feel comfortable and secure.

2. Champagne babydoll dress with a deep-v neckline

Babydoll dresses have been a summer staple this year. They're comfortable, cute, and flattering. Why not wear one to homecoming too? The babydoll silhouette is characterized by an empire waist and a skirt ending above the knee. Like the A-line silhouette, it accentuates a small waistline—so it's super flattering on all body types! And with a shorter skirt, we guarantee that you'll have legs for days. (♡ Pro tip: pair the dress with nude heels to further elongate your legs.) As you can see, you can totally elevate this silhouette for a formal event. Between the champagne-colored fabric, applique, and glitter, you'll be shimmering all evening. We also have to shout out this homecoming dress' illusion deep-v neckline—it's hot, hot, hot! (And the mesh keeps everything in place so you can dance the night away, carefree.) This neckline is loved by women who are petite or have broader shoulders because it draws the gaze vertically rather than horizontally. In other words, this homecoming dress idea is perfect for those who want to lengthen their body.

For the homecoming queens who want to dial up the spice, this homecoming dress idea has your name on it! Bodycon dresses are known for their figure-hugging fabric and seductive style designed to show off a woman's curves. So if you got it, flaunt it! This particular bodycon homecoming dress has a cowl neckline and side slit, so you can walk into homecoming feeling like a confident goddess. (The head-to-toe sequin embellishments—and criss-cross corset—help with that, too!) As you've probably noticed, the bodycon silhouette is another cut that has made a major comeback this year—and we're not mad about it! This dress also captures another big trend: emerald green. Sexy and trendy? Yes, please!

4. Lace and tulle dress with a sheer waistline

If you've already researched homecoming dress ideas, you may have come across two-piece homecoming dresses. Want the best of both worlds? Find an illusion two-piece dress! This homecoming dress has a sheer waistline, so you get the same effect as a two-piece dress but with more coverage. If you're also looking for more coverage around the neckline, you'll love the elegant feel of this crew neck. Crew necks direct people's attention away from your chest and towards your face and shoulders. (So throw your hair up in a bun and let your facial features shine!) Mixing textures and fabrics has been embraced by the fashion world for the past few years, and this homecoming dress idea totally embraces that. The lace bodice, tulle skirt, and sequin embellishments come together to create an eye-catching, unique look. Don't forget to complete your outfit with some show-stopping heels.
