Hot Homecoming Dress Trends This 2015

Know Your Type

It’s important to know what your body type is. Just because something looked great in a magazine on a model, doesn’t mean it’s perfect for you.

For example, if you’re pear-shaped, you will have a slender waist and the goal will be to balance out your hips but not widen the shoulders. Pear-shaped types should stay away from mermaid dresses which accentuate hips and make you look bigger than you are.
