Homecoming dresses don’t have to be traditional

Gothic Homecoming Dresses 2014 That Make A Statement

Any teenage girl will tell you how important her Homecoming night is. Choosing a Homecoming dress is a major event in a young girl’s life, but Homecoming dresses don’t have to be traditional. Gothic Homecoming dresses are gaining popularity as more and more girls are branching out from conventional ways of dressing for their Homecoming. Gothic apparel is usually very dark and mysterious, with a Victorian or Elizabethan look. Part of the appeal of the Gothic culture is the ability to express individuality and uniqueness, including clothing choices. Choosing a Gothic Homecoming dress is a great way to have a unique look and to show the dark and romantic side of your personality.

Gothic Homecoming dresses are typically black or dark in color, accentuated with rich reds, purples or blues, among other colors. Popular fabrics are lace, satin and crushed velvet, all of which look very romantic. There isn’t one specific style when it comes to Homecoming dresses, and the style you choose will depend on what you are comfortable with.

Some Gothic Homecoming dresses have a corset-like top and a long full or straight skirt. Think lavish if you’re trying to picture one of these dresses! Layers of fabric in the skirt, with beautiful detailing on the top including a laced up back make these dresses very glamorous. Add to that a very narrow waist and you have a very dramatic dress. The tops of these dresses are usually very tight and often strapless, so if you’re comfortable with a sexier look, this could be the style for you!

Other Gothic dresses are looser fitting and more reminiscent of Medieval times. They often have long flounce sleeves and floor length skirts. These are often made in crushed velvet for a very soft and romantic look. The tops of these dresses sometimes have quite elaborate details including lace insets and decorative stitching.

If you’re wearing a Gothic Homecoming dress you need to have the appropriate accessories to complete the look! Gothic fashion often includes dark make-up, especially around the eyes, black nail polish and black dyed hair. Choker necklaces are a must, and can be simple velvet chokers or more elaborate with tiers of beads or crystals. High heels and dramatic shoes or boots are essential to have the Gothic look.

One of the benefits of wearing a Gothic Homecoming dress is that you probably won’t be wearing the same dress as someone else at your Homecoming! If you’re having trouble finding the perfect dress in your local mall, check out the internet to get some ideas. You can also look in second-hand shops to see if they have something that you can alter at home into the perfect Gothic look!
