           Girls Dress Code for Cotillion

                          The dress code applies to all Cotillion events.


The girls are required to wear a traditional long or modest length dress in modest appearance and length. Dress straps must be at least 1 inch thick or cover the brazier strap. A bolero (sweater) must be worn to cover the shoulders. Pant leggings under dresses are NOT ACCEPTABLE!

Do the girls wear stockings?  We leave this decision to the parent and young lady, it is not a requirement to wear nylons or tights. Leggings are NOT accepted at the Cotillion under a party dress.


Do the girls wear white gloves? At this time, white gloves are not mandatory,  however If wearing gloves the color or type is a parental decision. 


What about dress shoes for the young ladies? The heel of the shoe should be as low as possible (FYI - a ballet flat is perfect) and must ALWAYS have a back strap. Open-toe shoes with a back strap are acceptable, but not recommended. Sandals of any type are discouraged. A sandal with a strap between the toe is in violation. Tennis shoes are NOT allowed. 


          Boys Dress Code for Cotillion

                          The dress code applies to all Cotillion events.


The boys are required to  wear a suit coat and necktie. A blue blazer and gray trousers (or any color) or pants, such as Dockers or Dickies trousers are acceptable. It is not required for boys to wear a matching suit.


Is a necktie required? Yes, always  a standard necktie will be required and is part of the boys dress attire.

Do I have to keep my suit jacket on all night? Part of good grooming is to remain with the suit jacket on until he at least reaches the car door. Please have your child remained "dressed" with the necktie up towards the collar and the shirt tail is always tucked in until exiting to the outside of the building. 


What about dress shoes for the young gentlemen? Dress or deck shoes are required,  tennis shoes are NOT allowed.
