With Homecoming 2017 coming up and endless Homecoming dress options, it’s important while shopping to select a dress that will fit your body type best because that will look the best on. Whether you’re going for a short Homecoming dress or a long Homecoming dress, here are some important tips to keep in mind.
If you are petite, a long dress may be a little overwhelming on your small frame. Go for a short Homecoming dress or even a short two piece dress. By doing this, you will be showing some leg which will add height instead of take away.
If you are more on the slim or slender side, something that hugs the waist is a great option. If you are going for a long dress, try something with a slit to add some dimension. Or, a shorter dress with a cutout would be an amazing way to make your look more interesting while keeping it on trend.
If you have a triangle body shape, you have a thin waist with a smaller upper body while your hips and thighs stand out a little more. With this type of body, a Homecoming dress that is tight on top and then flares at the bottom will look fantastic on you. You have so many options and will look great in any that you choose.
With an hourglass figure, since you have a well defined waist, you should definitely show it off. Opt for a more fitted dress that will hug your curves. A two piece Homecoming dress would also fit your body type wonderfully if you want something not as tight.
If you have an athletic shape, you most likely aren’t super curvy and your weight is evenly distributed. Although you could pull off most Homecoming dresses, go for something with a cool cutout to add some detail. Cutouts are a great way to make a look so much trendier and more exciting.
With that said, hopefully you will have an easier time picking a Homecoming 2017 dress that will look perfect on your body type. Dress shapes are important, as you of course want to wear what will look the best and most flattering.
