Dirty Dancing No More

As those who attended January 25th’s Great Gatsby-themed Winter Dance know, our beloved Deans doled out three days of detention to any attendees who donned scandalous outfits. Personally, I think Mr. Gotch and Ms. Levine secretly wanted to be the next Stacy and Clinton; they have been aiming toward having their own show on TLC called, “Polo or No-Go”.


 So, if you would kindly turn your attention to the picture of this year’s predicted prom outfits, I would like to suggest something. Are those clothes really so bad? Think of all the manual labor that could get done in that comfortable, breathable fabric! Not to mention the crazy dance moves. Wait five years and I bet we will see Beyoncè wearing that stylish dress.


 On the off chance that the outfits are too plain for your style, don’t worry. I have a solution. Simply stop by a local craft store and take a walk down the rhinestone aisle. Snag a Bedazzler and the biggest bag of shiny objects you can find, attach the jewels to your clothes, and voilà! A style so original that no stressful Prom

Dress Facebook Page is needed. This kills two birds with one stone! Not a rhinestone guy or gal? Well, tie-dye kits are affordable and available. So take this new dress code and turn it on its head. Now that 1980s and 1960s style has come back into fashion today, I think it is time to incorporate a 1780s and 1760s flare to everyday trends. It looks great, I promise!


Students model modest prom outfits.
