Aesthetics: Creative expression in fashion


Elizabeth Han

There’s something about Formal Day that lures even the least-spirited students to join the Homecoming fun. Their fingers cling onto their best piece of clothing: the flowing blue dress or the painfully form-fitting suit reserved for special occasions. It’s the one day when classmates don’t question a lavish sartorial choice — no bouts of “Why are you dressed so fancy?” — a day for a true freedom of expression. And with the 2016 theme of Fantasyland added to the mix, the creative possibilities are endless.
