All right all you high school students, you know what time it is. One of the most exciting events of the year is just around the corner. You know, the event that is written in all caps in every agenda; the one that puts a smile on every face. Yes, I’m talking about homecoming.
Just because the prospect of a dance is fantastic, does not mean that getting ready for the event is a piece of cake. I’ve heard way too many stories from girls who could not find the right dress, or from guys who could not decide what to wear. Don’t worry though, because I’m here to ease the stress a bit.
For starters, homecoming is a semi-formal event. That means nice dress pants and a button-down shirt for guys, and a dress that is not floor length for girls. However, if you want to wear a suit or a long dress, be my guest. Even so, everyone has to follow a few more detailed, general guidelines.
The major faux pas I see on behalf of girls is the length of the dresses. Let’s keep butts in the dresses, please. In my opinion, any dress that ends mid-thigh or is knee-high in length, is the most flattering.
