All About Matching Your Prom Date & Prom Dress

Most prom couples want to match their outfits. This makes it clear who they're with on the night and also looks nicer in photographs.

Of course, too much coordination looks cheesy - avoid wearing the same patterns or prints. Stick to some subtle color matched finishing touches to make it look well done and effortless.

When you ask your date to your prom, make sure you keep him in the loop during the shopping and preparation process. If you only message or call him a few days beforehand, it won't give him much time to organize things on his end. 

Firstly, as you prepare to go dress shopping, check in and see if he has thought about his own outfit yet. Make sure he knows exactly what kind of suit or tux he'll be required to wear on your prom night. If you already know what color dress you plan to buy, letting him know this information in advance can make everything match together more easily. 

What should a guy wear to prom?

Generally, guys attending prom wear a tuxedo or some type of formal suit. They can choose between wearing a bow-tie or normal tie (most opt for regular ties as bow ties tend to look very formal). They can also choose to wear a blazer or tuxedo jacket, suit pants (tailored/skinny fit are the most popular) and a formal shirt. Waistcoats are saved for only very formal prom styles.
