Navigating social events - what do I wear to homecoming in my freshman year?

So, homecoming is coming up and as a freshman, I'm kind of unsure about what the usual attire is. I want to make a good impression but also don’t want to overdo it. Any tips from upperclassmen on what to wear?

Hello there! It's completely natural to feel unsure about what to wear to your first homecoming. Typically, homecoming attire is semi-formal. For those assigned male at birth, this might mean a button-up shirt with a tie, slacks, and dress shoes. For those assigned female at birth, a knee-length dress or a nice blouse with a skirt or slacks is quite common. The key is to aim for a polished look that's a step up from casual but not as formal as prom attire. Homecoming is a fun event, so feel free to express your personal style within that semi-formal framework — a pop of color, a unique accessory, or a stylish pair of shoes can all add a nice personal touch. Remember, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident in what you're wearing. Have a fantastic time at your homecoming!
