Haute for Homecoming: Shimmer Dresses
October is here which means Fall is in full swing, and whether you’ve attended homecoming already or have yet to even scoop up a dress, there’s no denying the one trend that has dominated the season: the shimmer dress! We know you’ve seen this look around, especially since flashy 80’s fashion is still going strong. Interested in trying the trend for homecoming, or maybe that wedding you’re still shopping for? Scroll below for some of our glitter dress picks, plus tips for totally pulling off the look.
Shop: Ombre Metallic Dress Off the Shoulder Dress Metallic Plunge Dress
Let’s start off by saying this style isn’t for the faint of heart; the glitter dress is meant for the limelight. But if you’re looking to scale it back a little bit, we’d suggest sticking to a more neutral shade, like gunmetal or gold. Want to go full-tilt? Have fun with color! The Camille homecoming dress collection is filled with fun shades like teal, pink, and even blue ombre.
Shop: Metallic Tier Dress Metallic Cutout Dress Metallic Scoop Neck Dress
And while the glitter dress certainly makes a statement on its own, you still want to pile on some glitz to balance it out. From shimmer eyeshadow to studded hoops, don’t be afraid to incorporate sparkling makeup and jewelry into this fashion-forward look. Finish with a satin or rhinestone clutch; try a silver shade for cool dress tones like blues and pinks, or a gold clutch for warm dress tones like ivory or champagne.

Style Guide: Satin Homecoming Dresses
As we move through September, it’s only natural to look to the latest trends when shopping for your homecoming dress. And while fall has quite a few (Glitter! Leopard print!) today’s focus is primarily on satin. Especially popular in the ever-extra 80’s, satin has stuck around since last season, and is more popular than ever, if we do say so ourselves. Ready for a smooth style transition from summer to fall? Our crash-course in satin is right here.
What is satin?
Satin is a weave fabric with a shiny finish. Due to its thickness and rich texture, satin is best worn in cooler temperatures, making it the perfect look to sport at homecoming or a fall wedding!
Why is it so popular?
It’s no secret that 80’s fashion was over-the-top. So it makes sense that satin was one of the many trends that dominated the era. And since everything old is new again, 80’s style has come full circle, along with puff sleeves and pops of neon. Honor the decade at homecoming or your next special event with the slightly more subtle satin. The Camille La Vie collection has plenty of chic styles to get you started.
How to style it?
Choose from pretty detailing like lace and appliqué, or opt for a simple satin dress without embellishments. And just because it’s shiny, don’t shy away from jewelry! In fact, due to its regal finish, satin looks even better with extra glitz. Add texture with chunky jewels or keep it on the minimal side with delicate gold or silver earrings, rings, or a bracelet. After all, it is an 80’s trend, so more is more.
