Hottest Colors for 2016 Homecoming Year

Last Updated on January 1, 2021 by Ellen Christian

I love prom season and had such an amazing time helping the kids choose their prom and homecoming outfits. Back to school is in full swing! If you have high schoolers that means you are probably on the hunt for that perfect homecoming dress. Homecoming is associated with football – but it is also a tradition of welcoming all students back to school. And it isn’t just a one night dance; it is a chance to be included in sports, cultural events and a parade too. It is a memorable experience for them; so of course, you want them to have a memorable dress to go with it to make it the ultimate experience. Thank you to for sponsoring today’s conversation.

  1. The mint color is lovely. I made my prom dress in a similar color but it was more of a light, shimmery powder blue. I love looking at prom dresses!

  2. I love those two longer blue ones (the deep blue and the teal) – very pretty. And is it really Homecoming time already?! Makes me feel super old, lol … my last Homecoming dance was in 2004, as a HS senior.

  3. I always enjoy viewing the lovely dress choices. Since I never attended a prom I like to think about which style I would have selected if I had gone. They have such a large selection of lovely dresses not only for prom but wedding and evening wear as well. I can’t wait until my granddaughter is ready to go dress shopping!
