Synchronicity Boutique Stocks Up for Homecoming; Trends Reviewed

Synchronicity Boutique has ordered more than 1,500+ Homecoming dresses, most of which already are in stock.

Synchronicity Boutique, the Baltimore-Washington area’s “hottest special occasion clothing and accessory shop for adults and teens,” has ordered more than 1,500+ Homecoming dresses, most of which already are in stock.

“Homecoming is becoming much bigger at schools, as girls dress up as fashionably for Homecoming as they do for Prom,” said Synchronicity Boutique Owner Karen Mazer. “Generally, customers prefer short dresses for Homecoming, unless their fall dance is a true formal.”

As seen in the Boutique’s special Homecoming catalog and online at www.MyDreamDress.com, this year’s fashions tend to be “body hugging and sexy,” but in very different ways, according to Mazer. “One-shoulder and one- or two-sleeved dresses are huge for this season, as are dresses with cut-outs, draping/wide open backs or fronts, and the ‘Grecian Goddess’ look is making a big return.” 

“Flesh tones, including nude/see-through dresses with strategic accents are gaining popularity, and black is coming back,” Mazer added. “Poofy party dresses still play a big role, but most are very short and have corseted tops.”

Big, chunky jewels, studs and sequins continue to dominate, with feathers (especially peacock) and animal prints (cheetah, in particular), also very popular. All of these elements are in style, both on the dresses, as well as on their accompanying accessories.

Sized 00 to 30w, the dresses come from a variety of designers including: Sherri Hill, Jovani, Tony Bowls/Mon Cheri, La Femme, Faviana, Mac Duggal and Night Moves by Allure. This season, the Boutique also is carrying a larger selection of accessories including Alisha Hill and Johnathan Kayne Shoes.

Synchronicity Boutique registers every dress purchase, so no two customers wear the same dress to the same event. Mazer also will donate $5 from every homecoming/fall ring dance dress purchase to the student's school. {For each 2011 prom dress purchase, the Boutique donated $5 to the customer’s school for its after-prom party, SADD (Students Against Driving Drunk) chapter or other programming—supporting a total of 154 schools.}

Named “Baltimore’s Best” by Baltimore Magazine and known as the area’s go-to place for special occasion fashions, Synchronicity Boutique outfits customers of all ages from all over the world for Bat Mitzvahs, homecomings, proms, ring dances, cocktail parties, cotillions, graduations, Quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, college formals, military balls, pageants, weddings and other black-tie events.

In addition to the wide variety of dresses and gowns, Synchronicity Boutique carries accessories including jewelry, purses, undergarments, fashion tape, wraps and footwear.

Open since 2003, Synchronicity Boutique is located in Hooks Village, at 25 Hooks Lane, off I-695 Beltway Exit 20. Hours are Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays, noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 410-486-8866 or 877.919.PROM or visit www.MyDreamDress.com.
