It’s never too early to start searching for your perfect Homecoming dress. And what better place to look than to the stylish red carpets? Celebrity gowns have inspired some of your favorite Homecoming dress styles for a while. Here are a few popular looks that your favorite trendsetters sported first. 

First is the sweetheart neckline. This style is delicate, perfect with any shade, and looks great on many different body types. It offers a real “belle of the ball” feel and lends itself nice to a statement necklace or longer earrings. This is one style that will probably never go out of style.

Another is the sequin trend. Long, short, sleeves, no sleeves – you can wear it how you like and in whatever color you like. The younger celebs love to glam up the red carpets in these fun and flirty styles. A Homecoming dress should have a certain “wow” factor, and sequins does the trick. As seen on everyone from Taylor Swift to the cast members of Glee, these looks are sure to brighten up your night. 

Since Homecoming is a more relaxed event than prom, bold colors are always welcome. What better way to stand out from the crowd than in a bright orange, blue or purple number? Stars attending fun movie premieres and awards shows have been sporting eye-catching colors to mix up the been-there-seen-that little black dress.
