It’s homecoming season, once again. And once again, I’m here to give you some outfit inspiration! Any homecoming celebration is always a time for stepping your game up, just a bit. I mean, these are people you haven’t seen since the last time you stalked them on instagram . . . LOL! But, I’m saying, when people see you in real life, you gotta represent!

On top of that, an HBCU (Historically Black College or University) homecoming is always on another level. We take out homecoming festivities SERIOUSLY and getting dressed is a big part of the celebration. We tend to go WAY PAST wearing school colors and waving the obligatory pom-pom. HBCU Homecoming’s are about sporting top trends, showing your personal style, and standing out in a crowd (you see that crowd above!). So let’s get started. As usual, click the pic for shopping details.


First up is this Pep Rally/Lunch with the Girls look. Since I live in the city where my alma mater is located, I’m always rushing to the pep rally from work. Some of you will be traveling to your school’s city via plane. No matter what way you get there, you need to be stylish, comfortable, and ready to mingle. This FAB look mixes two of my fave fall trends, denim on denim and flare leg jeans. Mark my words, flare (or bell bottoms) will be ALL the rage this fall! Get you some.

#OOTD: #HBCU Homecoming- Game Day

Next up is our GAME DAY/Tail Gate look! You know I’m a fan of dressing for the occasion. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, save your feet for the victory party look later that night – wear some cute sneakers for the game. Why? You can still look cute and sexy while wearing this sporty athletic look. Plus, you’ll be way more comfortable sitting in those stadium seats or eating a grilled turkey leg with your sorority and fraternity friends. The trend in this set, LUXE ATHLETIQUE!  This fall is all about being sporty, but with chic labels.

#OOTD: #HBCU homecoming - Party Time

Now, it’s time to party! Now it’s time to pull out your most fly party ensemble, and STUNT on those fellow alumni. You’ve saved you feet for just a time as this. Strap on your heels girl, it’s time to dance. This flirty look is perfect for a cool fall night out on the town. Don’t hold back on the details, diamonds, and decadence! The trend in this set DELICIOUSLY DARK HUED MAKEUP!  Vamp it up!

#OOTD: A Little Black

And here’s a BONUS LOOK for you becuase all girls need options. You can never go wrong with slipping a simple black dress into your bag. You never know who you might meet at that tailgate party. You need to make sure to have a bonus date look. Have fun celebrating Homecoming 2015! When you need outfit inspiration check me out, FRIDAYS on Instagram, Facebook, and right here on the blog.
