So what do I wear?
Homecoming has become a very special event, but it doesn’t have all the intricate details that are associated with prom. The girls have been wearing formal dresses for years, indicating that it’s more than just a regular dance, it’s homecoming – an event that the whole school takes pride in and celebrates! So what do the guys wear? Well, as always, the guys should complement what their date is wearing…don’t over-dress…and don’t under-dress.
For example, you could wear an accessory, like a vest and tie or suspenders and bow tie, with matching colors as your dates tuxedo or dress. Luckily we have a plethora of colors and styles available to make the pairing process easier! You could mix and match. Have fun with you and your dates look! Formal is fun, and even more fun when it’s comfortable for you! Rock your tuxedo and dress with some converse or vans, or choose your dates favorite colors and wear those. There is always the formal route, a nice long dress paired with the classic black tuxedo or white jacket. Take the floral pattern from your dress and pair it with your dates bow tie or Boutonnière by finding a close matching flower. The opportunities are endless, but the best advice we have is to show your personality and have fun at Homecoming 2017!
