There’s nothing quite so bold or quite so eye-catching as a classic red dress. Red has been a popular choice among women for decades, as it’s the perfect dramatic-but-classy color choice. Like the little black dress but brighter, the red dress is a staple—and we love it for homecoming. For girls looking to turn heads in red this year, take a look at a few of our staff’s favorite red homecoming dresses:
A classic silhouette, this strapless red Sherri Hill is the quintessential red cocktail dress. Simple yet striking, the gorgeous, slightly reflective silk creates a unique texture to add detail to the chic shape. A simple, straight neckline and A-line skirt keep things classic yet modern, making this a dress you’ll wear again and again, long after homecoming’s over.
Another simple, chic red, this dress is slightly darker and the silky material gives it a sleek look we can’t get enough of. The wrap silhouette makes it figure flattering, while the loose A-line shape gives the skirt flirty movement. Perfect for girls looking for something a bit flirtier than a simple cocktail dress, we love this wine-colored party dress.
If you want a more detailed look for homecoming, this burgundy Sherri Hill is covered in a beaded pattern that shimmers every time you move. The pattern has a vintage-inspired look, giving you a modern 1920’s feel perfect for girls who want something a bit glamorous. The v-neck and cap sleeves add to the vintage vibe of this dress.
If you’re not too keen on vintage-inspired and want something more modern, this dress features an open back and side cutouts for a more daring look. The straps cross in the back, giving the open back more detail, while subtle, all-over beading gives the dress a gorgeous shimmer to catch the light as you move.
A fun, statement homecoming dress, this one shoulder red dress is covered in a reflective mosaic. The reflective pieces on the dress make it a complete statement: while everyone else shimmers, you’ll be shining. This dress also has a unique side cutout perfect for girls looking for something totally one-of-a-kind.
