When designing Sydney's Closet 2013 Collection of Homecoming dresses in plus sizes I was inspired by the deep rich purple that demonstrated true spirit at my daughter's high school. Her alma mater paired it with white for a powerful punch. Now purple reigns supreme as the hottest color for Homecoming dresses. Every shade is in from the softest hues of lilac to deep plum or eggplant. Purple is the color of Kings and Queens. So you can feel like you are on Homecoming court - even if you don't get crowned. No matter what your school colors you'll score a fashion touchdown at the dance wearing this must-have hue.
