2020 Prom Dress Code

Tioga Prom Dress Code

Prom is a formal and special night for students. We hope to maintain the integrity and formality of this night by implementing this simple dress code; as such any students not appropriately dressed will be turned away at the door. If you are bringing a date from another school, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, this criteria will be strictly adhered to.  There are hundreds of beautiful, tasteful, and appropriate dresses available for prom. If you have questions concerning your dress, it is your responsibility to seek prior approval from administration. For more information and pictures of appropriate and inappropriate dress, please see below.


  • Dresses may be strapless (if they fit properly) or include spaghetti straps.
  • Dresses may be backless, as long as they are not cut below the naval.
  • 2-piece dresses MUST overlap at the waist: meaning top MUST overlap with skirt waistband.
  • Midriffs will not be exposed. This includes both front and side. With arms down at your side, if flesh touches flesh, the dress is inappropriate.
  • Dresses may not have a slit that exceeds mid-thigh. This is fingertip length.
  • Dresses may not be cut below the bust line.
  • Dresses may not have large openings for arms that expose the sides of the torso.
  • Undergarments should not be visible. See-through apparel is not permitted.
  • Garments that are tight or low-cut are also unacceptable.
  • No cover-ups (scarves, shawls, sweaters) will be allowed over dresses that do not meet dress code.


You are expected to wear formal attire. Formal prom attire may be classified as a tuxedo or dress suit, including a tie or bow tie, a dress shirt, which may include a vest or cummerbund, and dress shoes. Shirts are to be worn at all times.
