A recent change in the tradition of the homecoming dance has caused distress among the female’s due to the uncertainty of what to wear.

For 13 years, the tradition of having a homecoming dance has assured students a good time, a date, and an idea of what will make the “best dressed list.” Yet this will be AHS’ second year to host a more informal dance right after the football game. But one question still remains. What should people wear?

Multiple females have been polled on this issue and the most common response has been to wear jeans and an Argyle shirt. Even though the female attire has made a 180 from the fancy dress, hair, and nails that it used to be, students are all willing to make it work.

Due to the timing of the dance, band member Brayden Ratcliff plans to wear his usual FNL attire, also known as his band t-shirt and shorts, instead of the old-school dance clothing: a dressy button up shirt with slacks, dress shoes, and a tie to match their dates dress.

“The dance is right after the game,” Ratcliff said. “So by the time I get back to the band hall, the dance will already have started.”

Juniors cheerleaders Haylee Holt and Annette Linnahan are planning on wearing their uniforms to the dance, while sophomore Malia May has a different idea in mind.

“I plan on wearing jeans and a red or black top since we did not get a homecoming shirt this year,” May said.

Boys and girls alike are toning down the glamor for relaxed night of fun.

Although the dance has caused many mixed emotions from picking what outfit to wear, all the way to the tradition itself, the revamped homecoming dance is still an opportunity for students to come together in order to celebrate homecoming; come rain or shine. Remember, this game will definitely lean toward the “thunderous” side, so fans will just have to sport a nice rain coat and boots as well!
