High school wasn’t the highlight of my life, but I did always look forward to homecoming only because it gave me an excuse to wear a standout dress that I wouldn’t be able to otherwise. When I was shopping for what to wear, REVOLVE homecoming dresses were always so on-trend.
I never loved the idea of shopping for a homecoming dress online, but REVOLVE was the exception. The retailer offers free two-day shipping and returns on any purchase, which makes it easy to order several, try them on, and return what doesn’t work.
Of course, if the idea of spending money on a dress you might only wear once doesn’t sound all that appealing, formal dress rental is a great alternative.
REVOLVE has thousands of dresses on their site, which can make sorting through them to find something you love time-consuming and tedious. I’ve done the work for you to save you time. Keep reading for all of the best REVOLVE homecoming dresses, from classic little black dresses to Barbie-worthy embellished minis with sequins and feathers.

A camisole mini dress is nothing new, but the blue and green iridescent material of the Bec + Bridge Lets Dance Mini Dress sure makes it feel like it is.
The dress features a back cutout for extra interest and pairs well with silver accessories. If silver isn’t your tone (it’s not mine either), style the dress with white heels and colorful rhinestone earrings like the Elizabeth Cole Asa Earrings.
retrofete is synonymous with over-the-top party dresses that are undeniably fun, making the brand’s styles perfect picks for REVOLVE wedding dresses.
The Anastasia Mini Dress is a departure from the monochromatic sequin frocks that put the label on the map. The sorbet-colored frock is covered in a gradient of sequins and a few sparse feathers that feel chic without giving off a “Big Bird” effect.
I’ve been admiring this dress from afar for months. Featuring all-over ruching and a playful tuft of ostrich boa as an off-the-shoulder neckline.

This little red dress subtly approaches homecoming sparkle with metallic threading throughout stretchy jersey fabric.
The dress’ bodice is fully boned to give it structure and features silicone grip tape across the neckline to make sure it stays in place all night long.

Another homecoming dress with straps, the For Love and Lemons Candice Mini Dress is giving me chic disco ball vibes (in a good way, of course). The dress’ skirt is kept flowy (no restricted movement, yay!) but isn’t so voluminous as to be overwhelming.
Bustiers (often mislabelled as corsets) have been all the rage lately. While most REVOLVE homecoming dresses jumping in on the trend are tight and edgy, the Bardot Sigma Mini Dress takes on a softer approach.
This soft pink dress features a swingy circle skirt, ruffle off-the-shoulder sleeves resembling roses, and a bustier bodice for a romantic look.
The NBD Jasper Mini Dress is a sleek approach to REVOLVE homecoming dresses. The one-shoulder minidress balances mixed textiles for a unique look that doesn’t need heavy embellishment to make a scene.

The little black dress is a swift departure from typical homecoming frocks, with asymmetrical draping across the bodice and a single large bell sleeve adorned with feather trim.
