I am probably not the best source for finding the perfect dress for your high school homecoming considering my school never had a formal homecoming dance. We always had a theme and dressed for it! I have however attended plenty of other events that call for formal-ish frocks and making this post allowed me the perfect excuse to survey some of my favorite sites for cocktail style dresses to share with y'all for any big events you may have coming up!
I tend to lean more towards the classic side so if you are incredibly trendier then these dresses may not be your absolute favorite! I have found however, that by leaning towards more classic style dresses that the dresses I purchased as earlier as my freshman year of high school still look fresh and fun as I continue to transition into my sophomore year of college!
I think that the dresses below could be perfect for Homecoming, Weddings, Recruitment, Formals, and even Business Parties allowing you to enter into events depending on your age as your dresses provide a timeless look! I have tried to include an array of different looks at various prices with hopes that you will find one that suites your taste.

If you're looking to save yourself some space in your closet as well as keep your wallet full I highly recommend that you look into renting a dress from Rent The Runway. They have loads of fabulous options that allow you guilt free browsing!
Some of my favorite places to shop for dresses:
| Modcloth (often forgotten with loads of dresses for great prices) | Nordstrom | Bloomingdales | Lilly Pulitzer | ASOS | J.Crew | Rent The Runway | Anthropologie |
Now I am only wishing that there were enough formal events for me to attend in order to wear them all!
