How to Pick a Suit for Your Winter Formal , Wallingford Center, Connecticut

School dances are exciting, but if you’re not used to dressing in formal wear, you might be confused about how to dress. By asking the right questions and finding a professional suit rental company, you’ll ensure that you look sharp and stay comfortable. By following the tips below, you’ll be dressed to impress and ready to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

A Guide to Suit Rental for Winter Formals

Consider the Dress Code

The most important factor is the dress code for the event; you don’t want to show up drastically under or overdressed. If the event is black tie, you’ll have to go all out with a tuxedo shirt and silk bow tie. If the event is formal, you can stick with the tuxedo or opt for a dark-colored suit. Consult your suit rental company if you’re confused about what the chosen dress code means. 

Choose the Right Fabric

Don’t Forget the Little Details

Your suit rental will need some accessories to complete your look. Shoes and a matching belt will tie your outfit together. While you’ll have a range of colors, styles, and fabrics to choose from, other accessories are an additional way add personality to your ensemble. Cuff links, shoes, hats, and cummerbunds are all fun ways to jazz up your suit. Wearing patterned socks, vivid boutonnieres, and colorful ties also gives you a chance to coordinate with your date.
