How to Choose Your Prom Suit in 2022

Every year, girls are determined to dress to impress at prom. They excitedly search for the perfect fit, hoping to find the trendiest dress to result in the most stunning pictures. For guys, it can be hard to know what’s what when it comes to formal attire, and you may feel some pressure to coordinate correctly. Here’s how you can match your date’s look for prom!


Suit or Tux



There are no rules on whether you should wear a suit or tuxedo to prom; really, the decision lies on what look you’re going for. Suits are modern, easy to accessorize, and can always be reworn on other occasions! Tuxedos are more elegant, characterized by satin details and a classic, vintage appeal. If your date’s dress is more on the trendy side -- think two-piece or high-low gowns, -- you’ll want the similarly youthful look of a suit. If your date is wanting to channel old-school Hollywood glamor, opt for a tux.



The Color


One of the most important decisions when selecting what you’ll wear to prom is deciding on the color of your suit or tux! Usually, you can’t go wrong with neutral-toned pieces, such as gray, black, or navy. If you’re looking for something more daring, opt for nontraditional colors or bold patterns, such as plaid or paisleys. Either way, ensure that whatever you select coordinates with your date’s color scheme. You should avoid wearing navy if their outfit is black, and you shouldn’t go with red if they are in purple. For best results, we recommend having a quick conversation with your date about what to wear before shopping.



The Accessories



Finally, accessories can totally change your prom look. Even if you go with a neutral-colored suit, you can add a colorful tie or pocket square to subtly match your date’s dress. Chains, cufflinks, or rings will add an extra touch of luxurious, eye-catching glimmer.
