Gone are the days of wanting to fit in with the crowd and now is the time to use your local resources to create a look completely your own. The Loft and The Salon on Main Street in Ames, Iowa have teamed up to bring you this complete 2013 style guide for Homecoming! Read on to be inspired with original ideas for dresses, accessories, and hair styles.


The Look – Modern Classic:  Looking back at photos from high school should be a proud experience. Going with a simple black dress and adding colorful accessories will look timeless and reflect your personality in the details. This season you’ll find chunky jewel toned necklaces, bracelets, and rings to accent your attire.

Bring the bling to enhance the elegance of a typical short black dress. The balance of the mesh insert with the pop of sparkle make this dress a homerun. There is no need to accessorize this dress too heavily. Pair a simple hand bag and bracelet to pull this look together. This model features a more complicated updo which  helps to balance the lack of heavy ornamentation.

Keeping with the retro theme the sparkly yellow hand bag with silvertone rectangular handle breath new life into a more traditional look. The sweetheart neckline is flattering to all body types and adds shape to the most sliming color available. A free flowing relaxed curl gives this look a personal and approachable flair.

The Look – Glitter and Glam: Homecoming is one of the very few opportunities in life to get dressed up and spend time with friends. This look is fun, individualistic, and glamorous.  Choose a color that compliments your personality and skintone and you can’t go wrong. Using classic diamond look jewelry and silver and gold tone shoes, you will finish off this polished look.

Show stopping red with sequence and a tiered skirt are bold, sassy, and elegant.  The bow tie diamond encrusted necklace is the perfect compliment for a fun and formal affair. You’ll be sure to dance the night away with this dress that does not disappoint. The flowing down-do adds to the carefree spirit of this look.

Glitter in all the right places, this dress is flattering to all body types. The V-shaped necklace highlights the dress cut and mimics the lines in the skirt overlay. Three textures allow for depth, versatility and interest. Pretty in purple you will be one of a kind in this beautiful dress.
