My ds is a 9th grader and is meeting up with friends (and a girl) at the dance since none of them can really "date" yet. I told him he should wear a shirt, tie, and slacks. He thinks a nice polo and slacks is fine.

Our homecoming is this Friday.

Our boys wear slacks, a shirt, and a tie.

This is Brendan last year... black on black with an AQUA tie... LOL.

It really depends on what your school does. Our homecoming was never formal so the guys were casual and girls just wore coctail type dresses. Some school are formal so the students dress like prom.




This is Texas. We don't have regular seasons here. We have Summer 1, Summer 2, Summer 3 and January.

I agree with the poster above me.
Black slacks, Black button up and match the tie to the dress.
Semi-Casual- plus you can get him to wear it to church later.

I have a 9th grade ds, too. His Homecoming was last weekend. He wore charcoal dress pants and a button down Abercrombie shirt, no tie. He said he was right in the middle as far as dressiness goes. Every single girl wore a dress. The Homecoming was billed as "semi-formal" so as not to "make it another Prom."

My dd has Homecoming next weekend and just got her dress and she has been trying to explain to her bf what he needs to wear...and he's like "Why to we need to match?"....It's driving her nuts so this weekend she is taking him shopping. They are going with a nice pair of pants and dress shirt with tie. And don't even talk to him about the flowers (she is just going to get what she wants!! LOL) As my dd says "Boys!! OMG!!"

Our Homecoming was not a formal affair, but my Ds' is. When he went, he wore a button up shirt, tie, and sportcoat with a nice pair of pants.

Chele~ Brandon is a cutie. I bet the girls are after him. lol.

I voted slacks but when I was in school and went to homecoming nearly... gasp 20 years ago all of the guys wore tuxes. Glad to see things are become a little more casual.

You did not have tux as an option. That is what the boys wear at my son's school.


ASTOUNDED to be here again!

Wow. Our school is super more casual. Usually the boys wear jeans, and a nice button up shirt. Girls wear skirts, or very informal dresses',or again..some jeans. It's all very casual, and not made a big deal of. They have Winter formal and Prom they get all decked out for. Homecoming is more for the game,and then dance after, so no one wants to go home and dress up. Esp since it's freezin cold out here already.

Our Homecoming game is on Friday and the dance is on Saturday. It's "billed" as semi-formal, so a tie is kind of expected for the guys. The girls' dresses vary in length & style, but are fairly dressy.

I keep bugging Brendan to pick out what he's wearing on Saturday so we can be sure everything fits (he got a lot of dress clothes last winter since the basketball team "dresses" on game days). I don't think he's grown THAT much, and we bought a little big last year, but ya never know.

Boys.

(thanks for the compliment, amah. He's kind of oblivious to his cuteness. I'd love for it to stay that way for a while )

Ours is on the nicer end but seriously I see boys there in a sweater and jeans (which I don't recommend!) to polos to dress shirts and ties and suits. A tux is waaay too much even for us. At our school the dresses are nice but not prom-nice- often short.

Thanks for all the responses. He picked a nice shirt and tie last night. Watching his lesson from dad on how to tie a tie was hilarious! Good thing dad will be home tomorrow night when my ds is getting ready.
