FashionHomecoming Dress Preview with Lulus

While going back to school is the last thing we want to be thinking about right now, one exciting part of getting back in the daily grind is thinking about homecoming! It’s the first major back-to-school event, which means it’s the perfect time to show off your new-school-year-new-you aesthetic. Revamping your wardrobe for a fresh start? Cement your style status with a gorgeous dress that embodies your updated look. Already know what works for you? Keep your image on top of it’s game with a dress that totally suits your personal taste. To get you thinking about how you’ll express yourself at the homecoming dance, see our homecoming dress picks below and shop the full collection for even more style inspo!

Short Homecoming Dresses

Short Homecoming Dress

Perhaps the most common homecoming dress style, and for good reason, short dresses show off your legs and are versatile enough to be worn again and again after the dance. For a look that feels totally fresh, try a white dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline, like our Season of Fun White Off-the-Shoulder Skater Dress. Paired with rhinestone accessories and strappy heels, this type of dress can look glam, but if you mix it up with some block heels and statement boho jewelry you can wear the same dress with a totally different feel. Short dresses are incredibly easy to re-wear, because they come in so many styles and cuts. From fit and flare skater dresses to sweet shifts, short homecoming dresses are an easy pick to fit into any wardrobe.

Bodycon Homecoming Dresses

Bodycon Homecoming Dress

Built to show off every curve, bodycon dresses are a sleek and sexy pick for the homecoming dance! Since the general structure of bodycon dresses is similar across the board, make sure you stand out by picking fun details, like the one-sleeved ruffle look on our Life is But a Dream Black One-Shoulder Bodycon Dress. Other fun details you might try include cutouts, daring necklines, and slits in the skirt. Feeling like a more classic cut of dress is calling to you? Keep it unique with your styling by selecting accessories and shoes that match your personal style. The same black dress can look totally different depending on who is wearing it and how they put the outfit together!

Long Homecoming Dresses

Long Homecoming Dress

Totally glamorous or boho-chic, we’ve seen more and more girls wearing long dresses to homecoming and we love how dramatic and stylish they look! While more people tend to look for a short dress for homecoming, if you are looking for something a little different, a long dress will set you apart and give you an instant boost. For something on the more glamorous side, look no further than our Girl in the Mirror Light Beige Beaded Maxi Dress. With a built-in rhinestone collar neckline, all you have to add are a great pair of shoes and a fun clutch to complete the look. Of course, there are tons of different types of long homecoming dresses that can fit any style, from sweetly romantic off-the-shoulder dresses to daring plunge necklines in a fabulous print – all you have to do is pick the one that suits you perfectly!

DIYHappy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

Happy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

In honor of National Tequila Day, we’ve teamed up with one of our fave influencers, Sivan Ayla, to bring you the ultimate tequila cocktail: Watermelon Mint Margaritas! Read below to get her how-to on this perfect summer beverage.

 
Happy Hour: Watermelon Mint Margaritas with Sivan Ayla

Summer is officially here! I feel like I wait all year for this season because it means permanent tans, rosé without guilt, and easy outfit choices. And of course, cocktails for absolutely NO reason! I had to make that part clear since I invited my friend and lifestyle blogger Devon Rachel over on a Tuesday for some margaritas. Then again, Devon is probably the only girl I know that would be down for some impromptu cocktail-ing (knew I liked her for a reason!).

With temps already hitting triple digits here in the Valley, a refreshing, COLD drink is actually pretty necessary. Nothing sounds more refreshing to me than watermelon, cucumber, and mint. Am I right? So why not add a little tequila, line that rim with some tajin or salt, and there you go!
Now I have to be honest, when Devon and I first attempted to make this (as you’ll see in the video below), I added 6oz of tequila!!! Not sure how I got the number so wrong, but between the strength of the alcohol and the supreme saltiness on the rim, we were anything but graceful while taking our first sips. However, I promise you we gave it another shot with the correct ratios and it was beyond yummy. For the full recipe and video tutorial, scroll down.
