With summer on its way out and fall 2017 almost here, it's time to update that wardrobe with new looks to take you into the cooler months. Of course, our favorite fall dress-up day is Homecoming, and there are six trends that we are obsessing over for Homecoming 2017. Check them out below for some great ideas to ensure you're totally on-trend for your back to school homecoming dance.
Trend #1: Lace Dresses
The most in-demand Homecoming 2017 styles starts with a trend that's been a staple over a few years now, for both Homecoming and Prom. That trend is lace! A dress embellished with lace details makes for such a timeless romantic look, and can easily be dressed up or down.
The dress shown in the picture above is Alyce 2646. This cocktail dress not only features lace, but also another Homecoming 2017 top trend, velvet. This romantic two-piece party dress features a velvet halter top with a high neckline, sleek side cut outs, and an open lower back. The short A-line skirt features not only lace, but a beautifully beaded waistband, opaque underlay, and a scalloped hem.
Trend #2: Green Dresses
Still trying to figure out what color to rock for Homecoming? Green is the color of choice for fall 2017! The reason that green is such a popular color this year is because Pantone named "Greenery" as the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year! Whether you rock a bright green color like the Color of the Year, or a darker hue, you'll be totally on-point with a green dress this fall.
The dresses shown above are: Sherri Hill 51289 and JVN by Jovani JVN42635. Both of these dresses are perfect for showing off your figure. Sherri Hill 51289 is a lively cocktail dress that's covered in a wild sequin pattern. Jovani JVN42635 is a lovely lace pattern with botanical hints of flowers and leaves throughout the dress, all placed over a nude lining.
Trend #3: Floral Dresses
Just like the lace trend, the floral trend has become a staple over the last few years and will certainly continue through fall. Choose a floral patten for your Homecoming dress for a chic romantic look.
The dress shown above is Mori Lee 33011. Head over to our website to see the gorgeous details of this dress, as it's one that is sure to stop everyone on their tracks. It's a short and sweet cocktail dress that features a strapless sweetheart neckline, a beaded belt at the waist, and an overall floral pattern.
Trend #4: Cold Shoulder Dresses
Both off the shoulder and cut-out looks have been all the rage lately, with cold shoulder details being a perfect combination of the two, and has resultantly become particularly popular this year. The bare-shoulder craze started as a popular trend on the catwalk, and is permeating the fashion industry, from casual to formal styles. It's the perfect way to show off just the right amount of skin!
The dresses shown above are: Blush C418 and Hannah S. 27171. Blush C418 is a perfect dress to shimmer with sophistication. This alluring short dress dazzles with delicately jeweled lace, a high halter neckline, and bold open shoulders that show off the trendy cold shoulder look, continuing into long lace sleeves. It's impossible to not fall in love with Hannah S. 27171. This two piece dress includes a jersey bateau neckline, sleek side and back cutouts, and the cold shoulder detail.
Trend #5: Two Piece Dresses
Just like lace and floral, two piece looks have become a staple over the past few years. This look has only become even more on-trend, especially for Homecoming and Prom dances. Our favorite part about this trend is that you can get so many uses out of it once Homecoming or Prom is over! Pair the top with your favorite pair of jeans, or find another cute top to match the skirt for a whole new look.
The dress shown above is Alyce 3738. This whimsical two-piece party dress includes a high neck lace halter top and a short, A-line skirt that features layers of tulle and a jeweled lace waistband that matches the top.
Trend #6: Velvet Dresses
The final Homecoming 2017 trend is one that's brand new for this fall: velvet. The soft, often darker or muted colors of velvet are a great way to bring a little bit of fall inspiration to your Homecoming dance, and is even perfect for rocking right into winter for Holiday parties.
The dress above is Alyce 3712. This decadent velvet party dress has a plunge illusion, V-neckline, beaded spaghetti straps, and an open back. The short, A-line skirt is cinched with a jeweled empire waistband.
