Prom and homecoming are two highly famous events that belong to high school students. In both of these events, the excitement level among students rises to another level and every student wants to look the best on this day. Though there are some certain differences that make them different from each other. Knowing these differences, you can make a right selection in homecoming dresses and prom dresses. It is the only way to justify your fashion sense according to the occasion type.

Let’s discuss how prom is different to homecoming-

Prom is a fully formal occasion and homecoming is not. Homecoming is much alike a casual occasion.

Prom is celebrated during the last year of the school and homecoming is celebrated at the beginning of the high school.

Prom night is usually moved around girls; however, homecoming revolves around seniors and for alumni.

Prom is drastically more lavish because of the event nature. Dinner, outfit and tickets often run students around 4x more expenses as compared to homecoming.

Just as these differences, the homecoming dresses and prom dresses have different standards. Homecoming dresses are usually little shorter dresses as compared to prom dresses. These are semi-formal dresses, so are more tend to be comfortable than being lavish.

Homecoming usually comes in the season of fall, so the dresses can be less formal and shorter dresses will go well for this occasion. While selecting the homecoming dresses, comfort must be taken into your consideration due to hot temperature.

On the contrary, prom dresses are formal dresses. So, the selection should be done carefully. The prom night is often organized during the cool season and girls prefer wearing gowns at this very moment. The gown should touch the floor. Hence, get a gown with full length. Guys should wear fully formal dresses like tuxedos or suits. The prom gowns should be paired with high heels.
