Dress Code Guidelines

Formal attire is required. If you arrive at Prom and it is deemed that your attire does not follow the dress code, you may be asked to go home and change, or a covering will be provided to wear under/over your dress, so please do not violate dress code.

Gentlemen: A tuxedo, dress suit, OR dress pants with a long-sleeved, button-down, collared shirt, and a necktie (bow ties and Western Bolos acceptable) are required. Coats or vests are encouraged. Shoes must be all one color. No athletic shoes nor denim pants.

Ladies: Gowns are required and must be modest. Long gowns are encouraged; all dresses must touch the top of the knee with slits no higher than the top of the knee. No athletic shoes.  Your gown should reveal no cleavage in the front nor excessive skin in the back. As a guide, if a string were to be wrapped directly under your armpits and straight across the front, no skin should show below that line (see diagram).  When standing up straight with your arms by your  side, no skin should touch skin. Side or front cutouts in the dresses are not permitted. Backless dresses must be no lower than two inches below the bottom of your shoulder blades.
