Homecoming is an iconic high school dance that marks the end of the athletic season. Whether you’re celebrating a big win or an unfortunate loss, you still want to look your very best! Your homecoming dance is the ideal time to experiment with a new style (like Y2K), try out a new trend, or wear a color outside of your comfort zone. Stressing about which color you should pick for your homecoming dance is the last thing you want to be doing before your big night. Let’s make it easy and break it all down!

Red Homecoming Dresses

Red represents so many things. Think passion, fire, romance, roses… you get the idea! If you want to wow your date or catch the eye of someone special, then red might be the perfect color for you. This bold color will make you command attention as soon as you step onto the dance floor, making it an ideal option for your homecoming dress.

Orange Homecoming Dresses

Orange is a unique color for any formal event, so it’s the perfect color to wear if you want to stand out in photos and have one of the most memorable dresses of the night. Although orange is a unique color, it’s being embraced by more and more designers, meaning you’ll have quite a few options to choose from.

Yellow Homecoming Dresses

When people think of yellow, most of them immediately think of bright sunshine and bubbly personalities. If either of these things represent you, then maybe you should try wearing a yellow dress to your homecoming dance. This bold, bright color will light up any dance floor and is the perfect shade of shining and standing out!

Green Homecoming Dresses

Make everyone green with envy in an eye-catching, green homecoming dress! This color might not be the most obvious choice, but with so many shades to choose from, there’s truly a green dress for everyone. Whether you want to electrify the dance floor in neon green or give of queen vibes in emerald green, there’s a green homecoming dress for you!

Blue Homecoming Dresses

Blue is one of the most popular color choices for any formal event. Think about it- there are SO many shades to choose from, it’s eye-catching, and universally flattering. Where can you go wrong?

Gold Homecoming Dresses

Gold is both classic and bold at the same time, making it one of the most popular color choices for formalwear. If your goal is lighting up the dance floor, then gold is the perfect choice for you. It’ll be impossible not to shimmer and shine in a glittery gold homecoming dress!

Silver Homecoming Dresses

Get ready to shine all night long! Silver is an eye-catching color that will reflect rainbows on the dance floor. Is anyone else getting mirrorball vibes? If you’ve never had the chance to try out a silver dress, then your homecoming dance might be your time to step out of your comfort zone.
