Not long after I wrote about prom, The Wall Street Journal carried a piece, entitled For Prom, Schools Say ‘No’ to the Dress. Apparently, certain high schools around the country are outlining for students (girls and boys) what is acceptable to wear versus what is unacceptable attire. They are issuing clear and unmistakable guidelines for students to check and re-check before they spend money on an outfit that may not be considered appropriate in the schools’ eyes. The goal: to avoid being turned away at the door, and to keep prom about the dancing.
Perhaps this will make an already difficult shopping process a little easier for everyone involved. Or will it?
What do you think?
