In every office, there is a specific dress code to follow. Just like in school, you have to wear an appropriate dress code every day or else you won’t be able to enter. In some offices, you have to wear a corporate business attire required by the boss.
But how appropriate and corporate are the dresses to be wore?
That’s what happened to a senior student from Hickory Ridge High School in Harrisburg, North Carolina who was suspended for wearing this kind of shirt.
A girl named Summer, is an honor roll having 4.4 GPA and according to NBC Charlotte, she is suspended because of the shirt that shows off her collarbones.
She explained, she was sitting in the cafeteria when the school’s principal asked her to put on a jacket because she wasn’t wearing an appropriate dress code for the school.
According to NBC Charlotte, Summer’s shirt partially showed her shoulders and exposed her back.
Summer, having no jacket during that time for she thought her shirt was just fine, still wore a jacket offered by a friend at school. Unluckily, the principal still asked Summer to change her whole outfit.
“I completely understand why a dress code is put into place but I feel like after I put on that jacket it should have been subdued,”

Summer says that she have had a number of issues with the principal during her four years at the school. The tension just gotten so bad when her mother recently instructed the school administrators to call her before having any sort of disciplinary action against her.
But that time, neither Summer nor the principal was able to contact her mother. Later that day, Summer accompanied dozens of her friends to the auditorium, the principal entered with a security guard and ordered everyone to leave except Summer.
Summer says that the principal is going to give her an ultimatum and just before she will be arrested, her mother called. She wasn’t arrested but was given a 10-day suspension and ordered not to attend any senior activities, including graduation.
Summer thinks the principal is still considering expelling her.
“It’s just sad because I worked so hard for four years to walk across that stage,” she said. “We have drug dealers walking across that stage, we have sex offenders walking across that stage and then the 4.4 student who showed her shoulders can’t.”
