How to match your date’s attire:
We are seeing many common trends for dresses this year: all shades of pink, blue, yellow, and burgundy. As well as patterned and two-piece gowns in metallic, sequins, and floral materials. You might be thinking: "how the heck to I match a sparkly dress?!"
Now there is the traditional answer to this question: black tuxedo with a vest and bow tie to match your date’s look perfectly. We can totally accommodate this, easy peasy. Yet, if you are not a simple black tuxedo person, or if you want to feel more unique in your attire we got your back with that as well! The key is to find pieces that compliment the look your date is wearing and not necessarily match perfectly.
Take our girl Alectra, in this she is wearing a champagne color dress with a lot of silver sparkle. There are many ways to compliment this look:
-Keep it neutral with an ivory paisley tuxedo with gold bow tie and black pants
-Bring out the regal-ness of the dress by pairing it with our blue velvet tuxedo
-Have fun with it and wear the rose-pink suit with black pants
Are any of these looks matching the champagne dress perfectly? No, but they compliment (get ready to hear this word many more times folks!).
Alectra’s second dress was a light blue form fitting gown with silver crystals. For this look paired the dress with:
-A deep green suit
-A purple tuxedo
-A light blue suit
Great dipping skills there you guys! Even with a blue prom dress, a colored prom tuxedo in purple and a suit in green still worked with it since we kept the accessories neutral. And the light blue prom suit looked cool and monochromatic with her prom gown was in the same color family but much lighter.
Purple Tuxedo + Green Notch Lapel Suit + Light Blue Notch Lapel Suit
Red is always a popular prom color for dresses. You again, can compliment red in many different ways such as:
-A black paisley coat with black pants and a deep burgundy long tie
-A navy blue tuxedo with a rolled pant and velvet bow tie.
Both looks bring out the bold color of her dress, while still showing they have style of their own.
Black Paisley Tuxedo + Navy Shawl Lapel Tuxedo
