Homecoming Trend Report

Well girls its that time of year again. Excuse us while we "Yay!"

Although going back to school is dreaded by most, we have to kinda get excited about the first big dance of the year, Homecoming 2010! Its the first big dance of the year and its a way to preview what Prom 2011 will be like.
We love any excuse to dress up in cute dresses! Windsor has some great dresses coming in and we are here to give you some ideas on what to wear to Fall's biggest dance event!

One of the biggest trends for Fall are jewel tones. Our faves are deep plum homecoming dresses and royal blue homecoming dresses. Here are our top 4 dresses:
Braxton $74.90                       Milly $79.90                       Wendy $79.90                           Betsy: $99.90

The next trend we're excited about is the one shoulder trend. We love the fact that you can show a little skin and still look classically chic. Just remember that when rockin' the one shoulder make sure to add cute accessories that don't clash with the shoulder strap.
Royal Blue Evening Dress $49.90       Rania-Print $89.90         Rania-Black $89.90      Emerald Green Evening Dress$46.90

Metallic colors are HUGE right now and Homecoming dresses are definitely loving this trend! Here are just a few samples of Windsor's interpretation.
Gisela $89.90            Silver Homecoming Dress $49.90      Silver Glitter Dress $39.90                 Berne $99.90

We love color at Windsor and there is no brighter and better color than red! Red homecoming dresses are definitely not for the faint of heart. Red dresses are for the girls that aren't afraid to stand out in a crowd.
Taylor $99.90                                       Columbia $89.90                               Tita $79.90

You can't have bright red dresses without mentioning one of THE biggest trends in dresses. Neutral, blush toned dresses. Windsor definitely has you covered when it comes to blush homecoming dresses. These are the girliest and cutest dresses in a while. Full of lace and ruffles that are super delicate and oh so lovely!

Brianna $89.90    Debby $89.90       Carrie $119.90        Champagne Cocktail Dress $69.90

 The next trend is one that can be worn now and later! Glitzy and glittery dresses are dresses that can be worn for Homecoming and Holidays!

Black Glitter Dresses $39.90   Foil Cocktail Dresses $46.90  Teal Glitter Dresses $39.90 

This last trend is one that we don't often see for Homecoming but these dresses are so spectacular that we couldn't leave them out. Floor length "wow" dresses are definitely for the Homecoming queen who wants all attention on her!
Ingrid $179.90                              Petula $189.90                   Vivianne $189.90

Trend Report: Cut Out LBDs

It doesn't matter where you looked this summer, bodycon dresses with cutout details were everywhere! These dresses are simple but they make a big statement. They don't need alot of embellishment to stand out. In fact if anything, these dresses probably have alot less materials on them than most cocktail dresses. These dresses allow the person wearing them be the center of attention. They give a small glimmer of skin without looking tawdry and still looking classy and chic. At the center of this trend is none other than Kim Kardashian!

Let's face it, love her or hate her (we LOVE her!) this girl has style and chic-ness down! She manages to look sexy and ladylike at the same time. That is no small feat. The main bodycon dresses are dresses with side cutouts, like Halle Berry's but there are some like Charlize Theron's dress, that focus on the back.

You will definitely be the center of attention whether you're just arriving to a party or leaving. The exposed zipper adds the finishing touch.

The last dress that we wanted to show for this trend is the the lbd with the cutouts that has black mesh covering them. These provide a more "demure" look because there really isn't any actual skin showing.

What to Wear to Homecoming 2010: Angelina Jolie Inspired Homecoming Look

I can't believe that Summer is over. As much as I am going to miss those lazy summer beach days, I have to admit that Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons. Here in California, the weather finally starts cooling, we get to go back to school and see friends we haven't seen in a while and the first big dance of the year happens! Homecoming is a pretty big deal in my eyes. It kinda sets the standard for the year dress wise and it also kicks off the year for everyone in school. Although, its probably not as important as prom 2011, Homecoming definitely comes VERY close to it. Homecoming dresses tend to be shorter but they have a little sparkle. Mostly I think its because its still a little warm out and also because this is also a dress that can be turned into a holiday dress.
