Ballgowns - a homecoming do or don't?

It's officially fall, which means it's officially football season - which means the homecoming game is right around the corner. This high school tradition is usually followed by a formal dance, so now's the time to start thinking about what you want to wear to the big day!

Every gal dreams of being voted homecoming queen, but even if you don't win, you can still dress like royalty. Are you worried that a ballgown fit for a princess a little too formal even for the homecoming dance? Relax. All you need to rock this flirty staple is the right attitude and plenty of confidence.

A ballgown dress makes a big statement, so you need to be ready for lots of attention - you can't be a wallflower when wrapped in tulle and organza! If you're looking to make a splash, this is the style for you. Go classic with a floor-length hem or pick something a little shorter for a flirty, modern update on the look.

One caveat, however - watch out for bright colors like pink and red. Anything too flashy, and a ballgown can end up looking a bit too much like a costume. Subtle colors like black, silver and pale pastels will keep you looking fresh and fabulous.
