Say It With Color – Homecoming Dress Edition

The last warm nights of summer are escaping us but fall is rapidly approaching, which means one thing – homecoming season! Homecoming affords girls the chahttp://nce to experiment with their formal look, take fashion risks, and let their dress be an expression of themselves. And what better ways to express yourself than through the hue of your dress? However, what you don’t know about your favorite color is that it has the ability to deliver a subconscious message to everyone around you. Color connotations are vastly cultural and not globally synonymous – for example in Western countries brides wear white to symbolize their purity, but in Asian countries white symbolizes death! Say it with color, but make sure you say it right. Here’s a guide to help you through your selection process.
