The most desired unique homecoming dresses 2015 for school dances this year show some skin. Cutouts, sheer paneling, high leg slits, short hemlines, and strapless tops are just some of the popular styles that students are wearing. But showing up in one of these types of dresses meant that some students weren’t allowed into Bingham High School’s homecoming dance. On Sunday night, about a few more students were refused entry into the dance at the South Jordan, Utah, school.
While officials gave the girls who have been wearing dress-code-breaking outfits the option to change clothes or put on a sweater, a few do not attend at all. Then, on Mon, with school in session, some of the teenagers still upset by the weekend’s incident staged a protest and were joined by 100 of their peers.

Senior Cierra Gregersen had bought a little black dress with a keyhole and crisscross-strapped back for the dance and was one of the students who declined to cover up and decided to leave. She also used clothing to school on Mon to create a statement. “I understand having a dress code for a learning experience, ” she told local news station Monk 13. “But as it pertains down to a dance, that’s our time to be paid for being good students, and we should be able to express ourselves. ”
Clothing code, which was relayed to students weeks before the dance, stated that dresses should cover the chest and back at the top of the armpit, and hemlines shouldn’t rise higher than midthigh when sitting. The school could not be reached for comment.
