Are you looking to make a statement on that special night? Well then, it’s time to complement the homecoming dress with the right kind of accessories. In fact, they should be no-brainers regardless of whether you’re wearing a formal gown or something causal.

Below are some tips on how to get the right accessories to go with your dress while being in line with the latest trends at the same time.


Big earrings, such as hoops and chandelier are quite popular and look dazzling on most occasions, but sometimes they can take the attention away from you and make themselves the center of attention.

So for homecoming this year, go simple and try some smaller studs along with an up-do that makes them visible without stealing the attraction you deserve.

Go for pearls or crystal studs that complement the color of your dress. The up-do you choose to go with the earrings can be of any kind, but some of the latest trends include a sleek bun or a messy chignon.


Finding the appropriate rings for homecoming  can be a challenge since there are so many designs available. Gemstone rings that include stones made from gold and sapphire, or a mixture of both, are quite the rage these days as they complement most evening dresses.

Moreover, the colorful options aren’t as limited as they were a few years ago. The different types of sapphire rings offered by brands that deal in contemporary styles shows that there are a multitude of available colors like blue, yellow, black, etc. Front Jewelers even offers a pretty pink sapphire rings as an option.

On the other hand, if you like gaudy rings, try out something big  and bold with rhinestones and sapphire. A plain band with a single sapphire on it as an adornment would do justice if you decide to go with simple and elegant look.


Statement necklaces might make your outfit pop, but for a formal occasion like homecoming, a short chain necklace would serve the purpose.

You can select something with a delicate chain in gold or silver and a small, delicate charm that goes with your homecoming dress.

For instance, if you’re going with a dress that features some bling, an ideal option would be a necklace with a rhinestone charm.

Hair Accessories

This year, headpieces/ headbands are the most flattering hair accessory. However, avoid something too overbearing for the event.

Instead, you can get a simple and elegant little piece with beading and pearls that add a little elegance to your hair yet completes your outfit with the perfect dose of glamour.

Also, make sure that the elastic of the headband is stretchable and soft enough to fit in with comfort and ease, so that you can enjoy a comfortable experience throughout the night.

Clutch Purses

Clutch purses are perhaps the most appropriate accessory for homecoming to carry the necessities. Among the offerings available, metallic clutches in varying designs are setting the trend this year.

If animal print is your forte, a metallic clutch with an animal print design would be a good option. However, if your dress is very simple in design and doesn’t require anything bold, go with a clutch purse with sequins covering its entire surface–this creates a metallic effect.  It is also important that you consider a small size so that that you can carry it around with ease.

These accessories will give your look some extra personality without looking overdone.
