The Homecoming Series: Dresses

By Sophia Angele-Kuehn

Hamden High School’s Homecoming will take place on Saturday, November 21, yet

many girls are still searching for dresses. While countless stores have many selections, the prices

are too high for a teenager’s limited budget. Likewise, there are girls who would prefer not to

buy a new dress, but revamp the old one in their closet. Luckily, The Dial is giving out tips and

tricks to help you look and feel your best at the dance!

Here are some stores you can check out for cute dresses:

  • JC Penney, Boscov’s, Nordstrom, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Windsor, Francesca’s, Rue 21

As for vamping up that little black dress in your closet, you can:

  • Add bold jewelry, like a metallic belt or faux-diamond necklace
  • Buy a pair of eye-catching (but comfortable) heels
  •  Bring a big, glamorous bag (which helps carry essentials)
