Dancing ties!

Can someone explain to me what the point of requiring “Sunday dress”* for selected youth dances might be?

* A ridiculously underdefined phrase, by the way.

Cause it's fun to dress up sometimes?

Good point—but why do adults feel a need to assign a day to have that sort of fun, rather than letting the kids decide when (and if) it would be fun?

We (at least when I was a Laurel) always planned our own Stake dances and decided if they were casual or Sunday dress. I assumed the other stakes we went to the kids planned them and assigned dress standards as well. The only exception was the semi-formal in November that the adults planned, but we all really, really looked forward to.
