Prom: What not to Wear


Emily Walker, Co-Editor-In-Chief

Prom is just around the corner so that means it’s time to think about what you are going to wear. Be sure to follow the these rules:

  • Students are welcome to wear a dress, suit and tie, or a formal tuxedo.
  • No jeans, cutoffs, flip flops or tennis shoes, including chuck taylors.
  • Non-formal headwear (baseball caps, do rags, bandannas, etc.) will not be permitted. Formal dress hats that go with the tuxedo or suit are welcome.
  • Dresses should be modestly cut in the front; plunging chest and necklines are not appropriate. Dresses may not be cut below the bust line. See-through, mesh tops or bra-top-style dresses are not appropriate for this event. With your arms down at your side, if arm skin touches chest skin on the sides, the cut of the dress is inappropriate for this event.
  • Dresses should be fingertip length.
  • If wearing a two-piece dress, midriffs should not be exposed more than 1-inch. This includes the front, back and side. Sheer fabric/mesh covering does not make a dress in dress code.

If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Pryor and/or Dr. Maphies.
