Girly Girl Flirty Rainbow Bright:

Every girly girl wants to be the center of attention, so why not go for something bold enough to make an entrance but sweet enough to fit your bubbly personality.

When wearing a bright colors, like the hot pink mini ball gown with cutouts pictured above, there are two options for clutches-metallic or a contrasting color. To balance out the puffiness of the skirt, go for a box clutch. The box clutch trend is big right now and getting it in a bright fun color is easier than try to figure out which of the hundreds of Jovani Homecoming dresses you like best (because we know that you’ll love them all).

When pairing a clutch to a bright dress, choose a complementary color. For this hot pink stunner choose a dark purple clutch like the Minaudiere from Rebecca Minkoff or go with a more subtle silver metallic one from Expressions NYC.

Classic Beauty Lover:

For the girls who dream of eating “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with Audrey Hepburn or having their homecoming date turn into prince charming at the end of the night, classic beauty is for you. A graceful look is the most important thing to remember when achieving an elegant image such as this with a cocktail dress.

Neutral tones and effortless beauty are key to the natural beauty look. Keeping everything simple and classic makes you breathe easy and will have you feeling your best. Delicate detailing and soft whimsical tulle are subtle elements that sweep you off your feet. Jovani style 1856, pictured to the right, uses intricate silver beading on the bodice giving it some edge while the two-tone tulle skirt allows for body and movement. Similarly, Jovani style 6691, provides an elegant feel with a high neckline and tiered ruffle skirt. The blush color is a perfect neutral tone for this ruffle dress and the broach adds a vintage touch.

Not going over the top and letting your inner beauty shine is important, so going with a simple silver clutch would pull this outfit together. Both Rebecca Minkoff’s and Diane von Furstenberg’s silver pockets of joy are perfect minimal pieces that will add an elegant feel to an effortless look.

Rocker Chic:

It’s homecoming! A fun night filled with music, dancing, and friends. For those girls who like to ride on the wild side, go for an edgy and exotic look. You like to rock your leather jacket and black skinny jeans on the regular, but want to mold your style to fit your homecoming needs.

Have no fear! Jovani is here! Texture will be your best friend. Like Jovani style 704, a combination of lace and feather on a black cocktail dress will for sure be a head turner. The combination of soft and hard is the best way to accentuate your femininity while keeping an edge.

For clutches, pair this dress with something as equally edgy with texture. Gunmetal is the best color to match with a homecoming dress like this, because its neutral tone still has an edge.
