Shine in your Sequin Homecoming Dress

Apr 26, 2012

Designer Vera Wang once said, “Fashion offers no greater challenge than finding what works for a night without looking like you are wearing a costume.” This is something to keep in mind when accessorizing with a sequin ensemble. With our 2013 sequin homecoming dresses just in, we want to help you accessorize with these hot dresses.

homecoming dresses 2012

Sparkle and Shine!

  1. Just like Vera says, you do not want to look like you are wearing a costume. You should portray a flawless glam look. Since sequins can be a tough pattern to accessorize with, here are some tips to help you out:
  2. Less is more – Keep jewelry limited. Go for a pair of amazing earrings or perhaps throw on a few bangle bracelets. Just be careful not to over do it. You want to keep everyone’s attention on that stunning dress rather than your abundant accessory choices.
  3. Metals vs. Gemstones – Since you are already sparkling, stay away from flashy gemstones and try metals instead. A metal will better compliment the dress and will, again, keep the focus on the dress rather than your glitz accessories.
  4. Solid Color Shoes – Go for a solid color shoe, rather than a glitter one. The glitter can clash with the sequins, where with a solid you really can’t go wrong.
  5. Solid Color Clutch- Keep the clutch a solid color and try to pair it with the shoes. Pick a color that will make the dress color pop.
  6. Keep Hair Simple – While we love glitz hairpins in the hair, this is the time to stay clear of them. A simple updo or relaxed waves is the way to go. You want to make it appear that this look was effortless and you were just born this glamorous!

Following these 5 simple steps, you will be able to rock those sequins like a pro! Always keep in mind that less is more. Keep everyone’s eyes on you with your flawless look; because this isn’t your costume or time to cover up, it is your time to shine.

Top 5 Countdown to Hair Styles Complementing One Shoulder Dresses: Part 2

Apr 20, 2012

Half up, half down, all fun!

Half up, half down, all fun!

You’ve been waiting all week for it, now it’s finally time to announce our final three top hairstyles for prom and 2012 one shoulder homecoming dresses

3. The Up Down – Half up, half down. Another way to show off your fun or classy personality. Add some small braids throughout your curls, give the top of your hair some volume, and be sure to not have too much hair down and if so, keep it to the side or off the shoulder that your strap is on.

4. The Bun – Make your bun tight and snug like one of a ballerina or loose with curls and waves throughout to show a more relaxed look.  Perhaps even add a cute headband to match the dress and keep hair in place.

5. The Short Style – If your hair is too short to do any of the above tricks try doing some small curls and add an accent to your hair. A flower, feather, or hairpin to match your shoulder strap will really bring both features out.

We hope this guide can help you to choose the perfect hairstyle to compliment your 2012 one shoulder homecoming dress. Also, share with us your favorite hairstyle in honor of Hairstyle Appreciation Day. We would love to hear your thoughts!
