If you haven’t picked your homecoming dress, we’ve got you covered! Below, some of our Instagram besties show us how they would style their fave Lulus dresses for homecoming and other formal events. Get some inspiration and get shopping!

homecoming style - long sleeves

Long Sleeves

Chilly fall weather means long sleeve dresses are a must-have for casual and formal events. For homecoming, whether you go long or short, wearing a long sleeve style is a sure way to be cute and comfortable at the dance. Take your cue from twins Kenzie and Carol and Tess and Sarah and pick a dress with some of the season’s biggest trends like wrap dresses or bell sleeves. Also note how both these pairs chose long sleeve dresses that you can re-wear again and again – a major plus when picking out a homecoming dress.


Shades of Blue

From deep navy to the palest periwinkle, blue is a universally flattering color, making it an easy pick for your homecoming dress. Whether you are a beach babe or a city chick, this popular color is versatile enough to fit any style. Add dainty accessories to a flowing maxi for an ethereal vibe like Molly Hogan from Trendy Chickadee or add some kicks and statement earrings like Payton Sartain of Hustle + Halcyon for a street chic look.

homecoming style - sequins


A glam-gal favorite, sequins are a surefire way to capture everyone’s attention at the dance! Go for a patterned sequin dress like Emily Rose Hannon of @emilyrosehannon to get the full effect or add some glitz with your accessories like Deniz Selin from @lefashnmonster. Either way, extra sparkle is always in style!

homecoming style - barely there hues

Barely There Hues

Floaty formal dresses in blush, beige, cream and white are a dreamy way to inject some romantic style into your homecoming look. Play up the princess vibes like Jamie Kidd from @jamienkidd in a light peach maxi dress with lovely lace details and pearl accessories. Or go for a boho, Grecian-inspired look like Kelsey Floyd from @kelsrfloyd with lots of gold jewelry and an off-the-shoulder dress.

homecoming style - beyond basic black

Beyond Basic Black

It wouldn’t be a homecoming roundup without some picks for the best black dresses! An LBD is a solid go-to, but these pieces are bumped up with special style details! Get a little mod with O-ring hardware like Lauren Rhoden of @laurenrhoden or show off with sheer mesh details like Olia Majd from @oliamajd. Both of these LBDs show your look doesn’t have to be basic just because you wear black!
