What to Wear to Holiday Social

Many students are confused on what to wear to the Holiday Social. The CHS administration states that the Holiday Social required dress is “dressy.” As this can be interpreted differently, listed below are specific ideas on how to dress and where to go to find a “dressy” outfit for the traditional Holiday Social.

Festive colors (black, silver, gold, white, green, red, and blue) are best for the Holiday Social. For ladies a short dress, a skirt and blouse, or a pant suit, is perfect. As for the gentlemen, a suit or dress pants and a button up occupied by a bowtie or tie, are ideal. The gentlemen are asked that they tuck their shirts in and wear a belt to go with, if possible. Tennis shoes are not appropriate for the Social, so dress shoes, flats, or heels, are ideal.

Additionally, due to COVID-19, masks will be required. Ms. Allen recommends that students overdress rather than underdress. Mrs. Brand says, "[Dress] like what you'd wear to church, but fun and festive." The Holiday Social is meant to be fun, so try not to stress too much over what to wear.
