Homecoming Dress Code Issues: How To Avoid Them

Friday, September 9, 2022

 
One of the highlights of a young person’s life is the homecoming - an event that brings together old students at their school, where they can exchange experiences. We all miss our school friends and this is a wonderful opportunity to catch up, yet we have to remember that even though we no longer study at school, we should abide by their dress code for the homecoming.



Check The School Website

This is the easiest way to find out what you can and cannot wear. Most schools would post the do’s and don’ts about the homecoming and if there is anything you are unsure about, you can always call the admin office at school and ask a staff member.

Once you have acquainted yourself with the do’s and don’ts, you can browse the HOCO dress shops online on the designer dress boutique’s website and order the gown of your dreams. In the event the school website doesn't have the info you need, you should have the cell number of your old teacher. So why not give them a call?

See Through Fabric

This could be an issue if you plan on wearing a sexy outfit. Looking at things from the school’s perspective, it is understandable that they have certain rules in place and if you are planning to wear a revealing gown, make sure you have a shawl as a wrap.

Dance Floor Etiquette

It is always best to kick off your shoes if you are planning to let it all go on the dance floor. The assembly hall might be used for the dance floor and it could get damaged by shoes, plus it is safer to dance without shoes.

Cover Up Solutions

The homecoming is usually held in the fall season and that means preparing for cold temperatures, plus if you are in breach of etiquette by showing too much skin, at least you have a cover up solution handy. One way to ensure that you are within the dress code rules is to ask for mom’s opinion on your gown and choice of accessories. If she says you’re good to go, you definitely are.

Influencing Factors

The dress codes that a school has in place might have specific agendas; school try to deter gang activities and allegiance to gangs is often displayed by wearing certain items. There is little point in protesting if there is a rule that you don’t like, better to simply comply. It’s only for a few hours, then you don’t have to worry.

Choosing The Right Dress

Of course, you want to look your best at the homecoming, when you reunite with old friends and rather than wasting valuable time visiting shopping malls, you can search with Google for a leading designer dress boutique. Then, when on their website, you can browse the many styles until you find what you are looking for.

With a little preparation, you can make sure that your homecoming outfit does not break any of the dress codes of your old school.
