3 Smart & Subtle Ways to Match Your Prom Date, Wallingford Center, Connecticut

With prom season fast approaching, teens across the U.S. are getting ready to shop for that perfect dress or prom tuxedo they’ll fondly remember for years to come. One way to make sure your prom is picture-perfect is to add small touches to your outfit that complement your date, without looking too coordinated. Here are a few tricks to use. 

3 Low-Key Ways to Match Your Date for Prom

1. Accessorize

prom tuxedoIf your date’s attire is a soft color like a pastel blue, wearing a dress shirt that matches under a prom tuxedo is a suitable complement. However, if it’s a bolder color like a crimson or tangerine, a smaller piece of apparel – like a bow tie – will add a pop of color to a traditional suit without overdoing it. Bonus points if you match your neckwear to your socks. Alternatively, instead of choosing the same shade as your date, opt for a flattering contrast. If your partner will wear a pale pink, try a green tone like pistachio or sage, for example. 

2. Go for Patterns

Patterns like stripes, polka dots, or paisley add unique dimensions to your standard looks and will definitely up your style game. Opt for a texture that’s similar to your date’s attire and make sure there’s at least a bit of their main color in your design. To avoid zany clashing, tone it down if your date’s outfit already includes a motif. Choose a prom tuxedo in one solid shade drawn from your partner’s outfit instead. 

3. Make Your Date Match You 

If you’re struggling to find the exact color or style that suits your date, get them a corsage or wristlet in shades that resemble your boutonniere or tie. Your date will appreciate your thoughtfulness and you’ll make sure you look like an item.
