Looking to take it farther a little more? Time to pull out some tuxedo accessories. Find out what your date is planning to wear for the night and go from there or ask for your date’s opinion while you’re browsing an online tuxedo store to ensure there is no confusion. There are plenty of opportunities to work the color throughout your outfit. Choose a solid color tuxedo vest or even something that has a pattern if you’re feeling a bit bolder – a tasteful touch can do wonders. If you’re looking for a bit extra, add a pocket square for a small sampling of color.  Don’t forget your tie! Whether it’s a classic necktie or the current trendy bow tie, there are lots of colors to choose from.  You can also try a cummerbund set to put your ensemble together a little easier.

Coordinating with your date can be tricky, but don’t get too overwhelmed. You do not need to match perfectly to look good at prom. Don’t be coerced into an attire you’re uncomfortable in, or let your date’s dress limit your options. This night is about you too! Take control of your clothes. Try incorporating a complementary color in your formal wear that will pair well with your date’s choice of dress.
