    Playful Two Pieces

    Homecoming dresses are an entirely different look when comparing them to prom. They are generally a little less formal, although some schools make it a very fancy occasion. Typically, homecoming is a gathering of students uniting as one, celebrating the beginning of a new school year and showing their school spirit in hopes of leading their team to victory. Prom is more of a coming of age pastime and memorable occasion. Of course, no homecoming game is complete without a celebratory after-party! Sherri Hill's fall line is full of two-piece dresses that are fun, yet elegant enough to be worn as formal attire. Adorned with beautiful lace and various beads, these two pieces are an on going fashion hit!

  • Laura Marano's Guide to a Perfect Homecoming

    Homecoming Season is here! To ensure your special night goes perfectly, Twist Magazine recently chatted with Laura Marano, star of shows Without a Trace, Back to You, and Austin and Ally. Why did Twist catch up with Laura for a little Homecoming advice? Because she definitely knows a thing or two about getting dressed up for formal events!

    laura-marano-homecoming-style

    Here's the tips she revealed to the magazine to make sure your night is perfect:

    1. Be confident: "I think the most important tip is to wear what you feel comfortable in. If it's not 'in' — like the current trend or style — but you still love it, you should 100 percent wear it. I think if you love a dress and you feel comfortable in it, then that's the dress for you."

    2. Consider your dress' length: "I think homecoming and winter formal dances [call for] shorter dresses. Prom is a big long dress scenario," the Austin & Ally star explains. "At the same time, if you're like me and love to dance at parties, you want to make sure the length is appropriate. There's nothing like having a super-short dress and being uncomfortable all night in it — that's actually the worst thing ever. So even though homecoming dresses are fun and short, make sure you feel comfortable with the length."

    3. Have fun dressing up: "My school has a certain homecoming theme, and I think you can always have fun with a theme," Laura says. "For freshman year we had H2-Homecoming — it was a water theme. I wore a Betsy Johnson dress that reminded me of a mermaid. I thought it was awesome because it kind of went with the theme."

    We especially love the dress she's wearing in the above picture, because it's a perfect look and length for Homecoming, just as she recommends. For a similar dress for your Homecoming dance, try Tony Bowls TS21312. It's a chiffon short a-line cocktail dress with illusion cap sleeves and bateau neckline.

    Tony Bowls TS21312

    Why else are we loving Laura's look and advice? Because she's a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF ambassador! What a great cause to support, and with Homecoming and Halloween season here, we're supporting her all the way!

  • Steal Nina Dobrev's Ombre Style!

    It's Fall, The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere was last night, and The Originals' had their show premiere earlier this week! We are most definitely back into the Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley spirit!

    One thing that we're always loving is Nina's style. Not only does she wear some killer styles on The Vampire Diaries, but she never disappoints off-screen, either. Seventeen Magazine posted a picture of Nina all ready for the Fall months, wearing a leather jacket and purple ombre jeans that we're totally crushing over. She looked so chic, and we just can't get over the ombre look!

    nina-dobrev-ombre-trend

    We love the ombre trend! It's a look you can pull off year-round, and wear from your day-to-day style to your next formal event. Want to bring Nina's style to Homecoming or Prom? Check out our favorite purple ombre looks below, and click here to shop all ombre dresses.

    Dave_and_Johnny_8725

    For a cute short purple ombre look for Homecoming, we love Dave & Johnny style 8725. The dress has spaghetti straps and an exaggerated sweetheart neckline. The jewels and elegant beadwork all throughout the bodice gives the dress such an opulent look.

    La Femme 17004

    For a deep to light purple bold look like Nina's jeans, it's all about La Femme style 17004! It's a gorgeous ombre chiffon gown with criss-cross designs across the sweetheart neckline. This simple and elegant dress lets the ombre speak for itself, the same way that Nina let her pants speak for themselves by pairing them with a plain black shirt and jacket.

    Jovani 6432

    For a fun and sparkly look, we're obsessed with Jovani style 6432. It's a strapless ball gown with a mirrored sequin bodice and ombre skirt. It's a perfect way to really have a stand-out look!
