I've been to four home comings. Never seen anything too bad. lol 

In the summer I usually wear a cute sundress (something that I can chase the kiddo around in) or in the winter its usually jeans & a cute top.

I always wore regular clothes.  Like I was going out on a date.  Just modest, dressy casual.  This year it won't matter because it will be colder than heck and we'll all be wearing coats.

My dh has never had a real homecoming from his deployments.  I just wear jeans and a nice shirt or a dress.  Nothing crazy.

I wear the sky high heels.. BUT if I have to walk more than 5 feet, I bring flip flops and wait til  DH is  RIGHT there to put them on:D that way I can chase a kid and still look hot when he sees me.. :)

I have seen a mix of it all. From formal dresses (yes, I am totally serious) to hooker clothes to pajamas to casual.

Love this!  Totally agree with you:)  The last homecoming I can remember I wore jeans, a shirt and a jacket and tennis shoes...it was cold!
