Want to stun your date and friends at Homecoming 2012? Gossip Girl stars to the inspiration rescue! This season, dress trends range from super-short to long-sleeves. Check out Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Michelle Trachtenberg rocking the hot trends on the red carpet and get inspired by their dresses.

6 Homecoming Dress Trends:

  • Sparkles - Sparkly cocktail dresses adorned with sequins, jewels, and glitter are festive and very trendy for Homecoming 2012.
  • Feather Fringe - Now this is a fun trend to flock to! Get funky by picking a dress with feathers at the bottom.
  • One-Shoulder - This eye-catching silhouette shows off just enough skin to be super flirty but still conservative.
  • Short Hems - Hey shorty… say goodbye to long dresses! The trend this season is short and sexy, and it’s a great way to show off your legs.
  • Form-Fitting Silhouettes - Just like the trend for jeans is the skinnier the better, the same is going for dresses. Skin-tight dresses are all the rage right now.
  • Sleeves - Long sleeves are IN! And they also help if it’s cold. Switch it up by rocking the one-shoulder trend with a long sleeve on only one arm.
