We Found Plus-Size Homecoming Dresses You Can Score on Amazon
Believe it or not, homecoming will be here before you know it, which means that it’s time to find the perfect dress to make this year’s HoCo the most memorable one yet. Searching for plus-size homecoming dresses can be tough but Seventeen is here to make the dress-finding journey as easy as possible. Let’s go over some helpful tips.
Homecoming dresses can be long, but most people typically wear short homecoming dresses. If you aren’t sure which your high school tends to lean towards, try looking at photos from past years, asking your older siblings, or texting friends to figure out the vibe. Knowing the dress code (even if it’s unofficial) can help you shop for homecoming dresses with more peace of mind. And when searching for a plus-size homecoming dress, don’t be afraid to try on different styles and dress shapes that you might not typically wear. You never know what brand new silhouette (like long sleeves, or a square neckline) might highlight your figure and help you embrace your curves on the night of homecoming.
Another helpful hack for shopping for plus-size homecoming dresses is keeping in mind that cocktail dresses and party dresses work just as well — even if they aren’t labeled specifically for homecoming. You get to make your own style rules! But if you’re looking for a little expert guidance, we tapped the expertise of House of Colour, a service that offers color and style analysis from stylists trained to help you find colors that harmonize with your hair, skin, and eye color. They know a thing or two about picking out the perfect outfit! Kimberly gave us a few insights on homecoming trends to keep your eye on this year.
Kimberly Mayhew, CEO of House of Colour, shares that “dopamine brights” could be a big homecoming fashion trend, saying, “popular colors include zingy greens, bright reds, exciting pinks, and turquoise blues.” According to Kimberly, you should also keep an eye out for cutouts and hyper-texture — a trend coming straight off of the runways. “Expect to see dresses with added texture including fringe, feathers, and crochet, to add to a unique, confident look,” says Kimberley.
You heard it here first — embracing bold colors, cutouts, and unique textures is a foolproof way to ~serve~ on the night of HoCo. We’ve rounded up some of the coolest plus-size homecoming dresses available to help you discover size-inclusive brands that flatter your figure exactly as it is for your big night out. Grab your sparkly high heels (or flats!) and keep reading.
