Roostertail Lays Down Law On Provocative Prom Apparel

DETROIT (WWJ) – No super short skirts, bare midriffs, or untucked shirts allowed. For the first time, the Roostertail has issued a dress code for the high school proms it is hosting this year.

Events Coordinator Jacqueline Pichet said the clothes of late have been getting a little too revealing.

“That’s been the consensus over previous years that … dresses are getting a little bit more risqué each year,” Pichet told WWJ Newsradio 950’s Sandra McNeil.

“So, I think that this is just to try to bring it back to … you know, so that the prom is about these kinds having fun and not just about how much skin they can show,” she said.

Pichet said  since the dress code was issued after many students bought their prom outfits, no one this year will be turned away. But she said it’s meant as a guideline of what’s appropriate.

The dress code details:

1. A young lady’s hemline should be no shorter than 6” above the knees.
2. Dresses may be backless, as long as they are not cut below the waist line.
3. No midriff-bearing cutouts.
4. Slits cannot go further than 6” above the knee.
5. No plunging neck lines, modest cleavage is OK.
6. Ladies, if you plan to remove your shoes, bring flats.
7. Gentlemen are not to remove, unbutton, or untuck their shirt.
8. Gentlemen must keep their shoes on.

A parent or guardian is only allowed to come to the Roostertail in case of emergency. Parents and guardians must also abide by the Dress Code. Example: no jeans, shorts, flip-flops, cut offs, halter tops, etc. At no time will families or friends be allowed on the Roostertail property.
