How-to Spice Up Your Homecoming Look

Homecoming- It's one of the most exciting times of the year for students of any age. The tradition has grown, but it has kept much of its fundamental roots. For those looking for fun ways on how-to spice up your homecoming look, we have you covered!

Trends are a continuous factor to keep in mind when considering any and all styles. They are constantly changing, but they frequently circle back around. Who are we kidding? Every style is bound to come back around. It’s inevitable. However, what’s trending should not dictate how you dress or the way you act. It is important not to lose your individuality. Homecoming is just one opportunity where visually expressing that individuality is not only allowed. It is encouraged.

Trends are given, but style is subjective. Your style is your own, and how you choose to express it could be vastly different than how anyone you know does. Your style is often influenced by your own personality and views on life. What you like may not be in co-ordinance with your best friend’s style and so on, but if your style makes you feel like a million bucks, you should embrace it full force. Confidence is not easily earned, so when it is found, it should be worn like a crown.

Whether you are a more simplistic person or a bold and vibrant one, homecoming is one major opportunity to have fun and step outside of your comfort zone. Homecoming style has remained relatively consistent for years, so much so that people are often unsure of how-to spice up their own homecoming look. Take a breather because we have done the work for you. Flower wearables are taking precedence in the homecoming world. Take some inspiration from these homecoming accessories and talk with us about making them your own.

Flower Crowns and Hair Pieces

Top off your homecoming look with a flower crown that fits your style. These fragrant beauties assembled to caress your head add a sort of natural elegance to a person’s homecoming style. Regardless of whether you are voted homecoming princess or not, you are decreed royalty. Dare we say a blushing homecoming beauty. If you just want to feel like the garden queen at your next homecoming, you’ll need the perfect crown to fit the occasion. Win over every guest’s sight with a sure-fire piece to spice up your homecoming look. Walk with confidence knowing you feel your best. Express who you are by incorporating that style into your floral hair piece.

There are many opportunities for personalization when it comes to a homecoming flower crown. The flower crown look can either be created to fit your simplistic style or to adhere to your sheer boldness. There are so many options when it comes to dressing up or dressing down your flower crown. It all boils down to style, the aesthetic you are going for and the outfit you are complimenting.

If you are begging for boho style, go with a greenery base and bold large flowers to finish. A boho flower crown is a style anyone can get behind. It is a great way to tie in your dress and overall aesthetic. Soft baby's breath tangled in a freshly arranged batch of greenery is perfect for an outfit needing a feminine yet simplistic touch.

A crown of viburnum dentate berries, pepper berries, berzelia or brunia berries easily add texture and variety to a homecoming outfit. Incorporate a feather, fabric trimmings or a variety of jewels to make your flower crown completely “you.”

For the homecoming goer who is not into the flower crown look, consider a floral comb or simple floral hair piece to tie together your homecoming hairstyle. A floral comb can be as simple or flashy as your heart's desire. Just as the floral comb, a floral hair piece can be adjusted to fit your hairstyle of choice. It can be a large hat or bold accent, or it could be an accessory that is only noticed when someone takes the time to notice the details of your outfit. Any and all these floral pieces are ideal for spicing up a homecoming look or drawing the center of attention for any photo.

If you love it, embrace it, and work with us to have it cater to your style. Corsages became popular because they are beautiful and are still a classic homecoming and prom staple.

There is no need to stray away from tradition if it is a tradition that you love to embrace. A corsage can be the perfect finishing touch to a homecoming look. However, you can love the concept and not the style. If you are ready for a fresh take on the style, we are here to help with the top 2019 corsage styles.

In order to cater to the green-inspired style of the modern generation, a corsage needs some organic touches. A very popular new trend in corsage style embraces the succulent craze.

If succulents aren’t your thing, an all-greenery filled corsage can be created to fit your taste. If you are looking for some more pizzazz and floral corsages aren’t your thing, consider a solely accessory (ribbon, beads or feathers) filled corsage. It’s the accessory you have always wanted that you won’t be able to pick up just anywhere. Corsages can be made to fit any style and any look. Don’t rule them out just yet. Look and see what they have to offer.

Bold Choices

Trending flower wearable are getting bigger, more complicated and more in-your-face. Why? Perhaps it is the uniqueness of it all. Perhaps it is the green mentality. It may just be that everything boils down to the desire to be different. No flower wearable is going to be completely alike, yet that adds to the fun.

Homecoming Mums

Go big or go home. You know what they say- “Mums” the word. Depending on your area, homecoming styles change. For some, homecoming style is sacred. For some, mums are THE choice... the only choice.

The tradition of homecoming mums originated in Texas. The whole tradition started off as a gesture to express affection. A girl would be given a mum by her date at or around a high school football fame. What started as a single chrysanthemum bloom, worn as a brooch, with a few ribbons and accessories has transformed into bold and extravagant designs. Designs that are made to fit any style, any person and any vision.

This homecoming accent has grown (both figuratively and literally) in popularity by a substantial amount. The designs are bigger, bolder and are worn proudly around the neck. They do say everything is bigger in Texas. Homecoming mums are no exception. More and more states have adopted this homecoming tradition and overall look.

Homecoming mums may be among the most personalized homecoming accessory. Spicing up this look isn’t frowned upon. It is encouraged. These bold displays of school spirit can carry a heavy load. We mean that quite literally! They often reach upwards of 20 pounds, worn around the neck- all day.

Their jaw-dropping designs can often take up a person’s entire torso. Although they are traditional displays of homecoming spirit, some schools have regulated them in their entirety. It is important to know your school’s regulations. Regulations have been formed due to most homecoming mums’ large size and flashy nature. There are many schools that have pushed back on the tradition due to the fact they can be distracting. Do your research before planning a homecoming outfit around them.

Homecoming mums are among the most personalized of homecoming accessories. Spicing up this look is done on any given year. You can get as creative or as specific as you want. Standing out in the homecoming mum crowd isn't easy, but the process of designing your homecoming mum is extra fun and extra personal.
