Homecoming Regality – How to Dress for the Homecoming Court

Aug 22, 2016

So you’ve been picked for homecoming court: congratulations! Now the question is, what do you wear? Whether you need a homecoming court outfit for the pre-homecoming festivities, such as the homecoming game promenade, or are looking for your dream homecoming court gown for the big night, DressProm has all the most glamorous numbers around. Your homecoming weekend outfit should represent your big personality and perhaps pay tribute to the regal traditions of the queen’s court or your school colors.

For the Homecoming Game

If your school’s traditions require the court to appear on the field at the homecoming game, you’ll need a special outfit for the occasion. Unlike your homecoming gown, this outfit can be on the casual side, but you’ll still want to be semi-dressed up. We love the idea of showing your school spirit with a prideful style done in your team colors. Court members are often asked to wear boutonnieres or corsages, so make sure you account for that when picking a dress.

For the Homecoming Dance

If you’ve been selected for homecoming court, you’re probably feeling the pressure of finding that picture-perfect gown. We always recommend court members wear something seriously show-stopping — after all, the whole school’s going to be looking at you! Channel your inner queen before the big announcement with a ball gown homecoming dress and you’ll feel like a 21st century Cinderella. We adore Blush’s line of two-piece homecoming gowns for the season, like the spectacular Two-Piece Blush Ball Gown!

If you’d like to show your edgy side without compromising the classic princess look, you can always opt for a cupcake homecoming gown with a short, flirty skirt that will have you twirling all over the dance floor. To channel your inner royalty and pay tribute to the fall and winter homecoming season traditions, consider a dark-colored homecoming dress in maroon, navy or gold. No matter which style you choose, you can’t go wrong when you complete the look with a dazzling tiara.
