Distress of a Dress

This week and the following week is homecoming for Marist High School. Many girls are struggling to find dresses they like for this occasion. I am here to give you tips and tricks on how to dress.

Sofia McQuid, sophomore, says, “I was stressing out trying to figure out how to afford 5 Homecoming dresses, then Drew told me I could borrow some of hers for them. It was such a lifesaver.” 

Tips and Tricks #1- If you want to save money and are going to multiple Homecomings is to swap dresses. Many upperclassmen and even underclassmen have gone to multiple homecomings. It’s not embarrassing to borrow dresses or to ask someone for a dress. Girls understand the struggle, and will offer a helping hand by sharing dresses.  

Tips and Tricks #2- If you are stressed out that your dress doesn’t fit or isn’t what you wanted, head to Lucy in the Sky. In the settings there is a 24 hour dress section and you can easily get a dress in no time. 

Tips and Tricks #3- Don’t know what type of dress fits your body type? Take this quiz to figure out your body shape. Scroll down to your shape and find what fits you best.These are only suggestions and know you’ll look beautiful in whatever you choose. 

Tips and Tricks #4- This doesn’t apply to dresses, but don’t— I repeat— don’t  wear heels that are too high. Your feet will be killer before the dance even starts. If you want them for pictures, I suggest you have flats or other shoes to change into for the dance. Barefoot at the dance is a huge no-no. At the end of the night, your feet will be black and covered in other people’s sweat. YUCK! 

“All my friends last year struggled to dance in their high heels and at the end of the night their feet hurt so bad,” says Faye Bouck, sophomore.

Tips and Tricks #5- Do not wear dresses that are too short. First of all, you won’t be let into the dance and it looks tacky. Cassidy Cage, sophomore, says, “It’s not worth it to wear a super short because it looks tacky and doesn’t make sense for a school dance.” 

Homecoming is a time to show up in a gorgeous mid-length dress and have fun. It’s not a party or a friend’s event – It’s a fun school dance.
