It’s that time of year again…homecoming! While everyone else is worried about dates, dinners and dresses, you will be stress free with my easy guide to accessorizing for homecoming.
Personally, I love a little black dress no matter the occasion. Plus, you can easily accessorize it.
Hailey Logan Body-Con Dress
We can go in two different directions with this dress: have statement shoes or statement jewelry.
For statement shoes, I would choose these babies:
Steve Madden Pumps
I would pair these abstract-patterned pumps with simple jewelry, like this matching necklace and stud earrings.
Kate Spade Pendant | Kate Spade Stud Earrings
For statement jewelry, I would choose this absolutely fabulous statement necklace, along with a hint of color from these studded earrings.
BP. Layered Necklace | Erickson Beamon Rocks Earrings
Since the jewelry is doing all the talking, pair these precious jewels with understated pumps.
Chinese Laundry ‘Savvy’ Pump
Between balancing out your crazy class schedule and attending all the Friday night football games, there is one particular event that will be lingering in the back of every girl’s mind…homecoming.
Now I love a form fitting, head-to-toe sequined dress just as much as the next girl, but that isn’t exactly practical for endless hours of socializing with your besties and breaking out into spontaneous dance parties. That’s why this simple, yet sophisticated, navy blue ensemble is the perfect choice. Its tiny crochet cutouts and darling diamond detail give the dress the prefect amount of elegance.
When it comes to heels let’s be honest here, they end up coming off half way through the night. These sparkly pumps add just the right amount of glamour to the outfit even though they aren’t the most comfortable. I mean sometimes beauty is pain right?
When deciding on jewelry to pair with your outfit, remember to choose pieces that will enhance your dress, not upstage it. I kept it simple with a pair of diamond tear drop earrings that perfectly complements the belt.
And of course, we can’t forget about this absolutely adorable clutch. (It was my great-grandmothers from the 40’s…can you say vintage?) A few essentials I would make sure to have with me is gum, lip gloss, and of course my cell phone. You want to make sure to take tons of pics because trust me, it will be a night to remember!
No matter what you wear to homecoming remember to make it your own, and most importantly…HAVE FUN!
Today I played dress up with a few friends to find the perfect homecoming outfits.
1. Brittney’s look is quirky and fun in her seafoam daisy dress.
2. Eliza kept it simple with a classy black velvet dress and turquoise necklace.
3. Brittney’s look is fierce and edgy with a red and black printed dress and jewel necklace.
4. Caroline looks girly and sweet in her pink & lace maxi dress with pearl accessories.
5. I went back to black like Eliza, but switched it up with a fitted velvet skirt and lace babydoll top.
Whatever you wear, don’t forget to have fun!

It’s one of the best times during your high school experience, and what we look forward to at the beginning of every school year: Homecoming. Now that you ladies have gone through hundreds of dresses and maybe even hundreds of dollars to ensure that your night is perfect, it’s time to think about what your date will wear. Some may argue that it’s more difficult for ladies to get ready for formal events, but us gentlemen don’t fall too far behind. It’s tough for us, too.
Let’s break down a homecoming look that anyone’s date will look like a king in:
Topman Skinny Fit Cotton Flannel Trousers (on sale right now!) | Calibrate Dress Shirt
Whether your date is a traditionalist or a guy who thinks outside the box, this look is fantastic. I paired a classic slim-fit black blazer with comfortable Topman Skinny Fit Trousers, then added a pop of color with a vibrant purple dress shirt. For guys who like to keep things more low-key, a white dress shirt would look just as sharp.
To finish off, I opted for a silver watch and a Ted Baker bow tie. A colorful bow tie definitely separates you from everyone else in the room and really solidifies your individuality.
For a stylish twist on the classic tuxedo, leather sleeves and lapels take things to the next level. I chose a cream-colored shirt and my favorite python dress shoes to complete the look.
You don’t always have to conform to society or play by the rules: The best part about fashion is there aren’t any rules!
Enjoy your homecoming!
