Homecoming Accessories: Hair

Don’t forget about those locks! Hair accessories are one of our favorite trends at the moment, and what a better night to rock one than homecoming! Whether you’re having your hair done or styling it yourself, hair accessories are the easiest way to elevate your look with minimal effort. If you’re going for a more simple hair style, the Moon and Sky Gold Rhinestone hair clip is perfect for clipping a few pieces back for a more finished look, while hair combs are essential for dressing up a half up do! Or if you’d like an elegant updo, add a headband like our Breathtaking Grey and Silver Rhinestone headband for bit more sparkle.

Homecoming Accessories: Clutches

A cute clutch is the perfect piece pull your look together. This season at the Lulus HQ, we just can’t get enough of rich textures, elegant embellishments and magical metallics. Our On a Roll Velvet Clutch, available in four fall tones, is sure to add style points to your homecoming ensemble.

A combination of neutral tones and faux pearls in gold settings will add a touch of elegance to your look. Lastly, our Reflected Image Rose Gold Mirrored Clutch is sure to make you shine like a star this homecoming.

Homecoming Accessories: Jewelry

The best part of accessorizing any outfit is adding a little sparkle and shine to your look with wow-worthy jewelry. No matter what style of dress you decided on for homecoming this year, we’re sure to have a piece of jewelry that will compliment it. For a chic, minimalist look, pair a low neckline with a layered drop necklace such as the Modern Minimalist Gold Layered Collar Necklace. If the dress you’ve chosen features a high neck or embellishments near the neckline, we suggest opting for a statement earring like the Queen Of The Isle Gold Earrings. Or add some serious glamour to your homecoming look, while staying on trend, with our Glitz on the Rocks Silver Rhinestone Choker Necklace.

FashionBridal Guide: What to Wear to a Rehearsal Dinner

Your rehearsal dinner is the last major event before your big day and the official kick off to your wedding weekend! Depending on the size of the wedding, and the wishes of the bride and groom, the rehearsal dinner can be anything from a formal sit-down dinner to a casual outdoor get together. With so much going on leading up to your wedding day, it’s easy for your rehearsal dinner look to take a back seat, which is why we have put together another bridal style guide to make getting ready for the day before the big day easy as can be!

Destination Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Destination

Destination weddings are all about enjoying the beautiful location and taking in the scenery.  A rehearsal dinner for a destination wedding will likely be on the casual side, but be sure to embrace vacation vibes and keep the setting in mind when choosing your outfit. With crochet lace detailing and on-trend statement sleeves, our Love Letters Dress is the perfect option for the bride-to-be. This dress also features a breezy silhouette that will keep you cool and comfortable all night long. If you’re a guest who has made the trip to attend a destination wedding, have fun with your look and choose a vacation dress that you wouldn’t typically wear in your day-to-day life. Bright florals, embroidered details, and two-piece sets are all fabulous options.

Formal Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Formal

If you’ve chosen a formal setting for your rehearsal dinner, you’ll want your attire to be equally elevated. For the bride, choose an elegant midi dress that radiates class. Our Wishful Wanderings White Lace Midi Dress combines delicate lace with satin ribbon ties for the ultimate bridal look. If you’re attending a friend’s rehearsal dinner in a formal setting, we suggest opting for a more modest silhouette, such as a midi or maxi dress, or even a jumpsuit! Our beautiful Love Interest Black Floral Print Maxi Dress or a chic jumpsuit like our Let Me Entertain You Black Satin Jumpsuit are both fantastic options for a formal event.

Casual Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinner - Casual

A casual setting rehearsal dinner is the perfect time for your friends and family to mingle and get to know each other! If you’re having a backyard BBQ or have chosen to host a dinner at a casual restaurant, be sure that your outfit matches the tone of the evening. If you’re the bride, a darling sundress with off-the-shoulder details is the perfect mix of casual with a hint of sexiness. Attending a casual rehearsal dinner as a guest? Go for a cute and playful look with our Seahaven Denim Blue Print Skort Dress, or add some drama with a deep V neckline with our Faithfull the Brand Nova Terra Cotta Floral Print Dress.

Congrats! You made it to the day before the wedding in perfect style! Be sure to share your rehearsal dinner looks with #lovelulus and let us know in the comments which look you love the most!
