Usually, the half of the date who wears a tuxedo to a formal event knows that they might not look as exciting as the person wearing a glitzy, glam party dress. However, folks, it's 2016, and that kind of sad fact is just no longer true! For those of you who want to inject a little personality into your black-tie attire, rest assured that you have quite a few options to choose from. From bright orange to camouflage to the American flag, you're sure to find something that suits you!

Harry and Lloyd are known for lots and lots of things, but, for the sake of this blog post, let's focus on their fancy dress. Powder blue and bright orange suits - now that's a way to make a statement at prom. And great news, we have girl versions, too! You could color coordinate with your date, arrive on the scene, and reenact your favorite parts of Dumb and Dumber. Know what would be even cooler? If you rolled up to prom in the infamous Mutt Cutts shaggin' wagon.

Opposuits are named that way because they're opposite of what you think about traditional tuxes; stuffy, boring, plain, gross. They're bright and they're loud, but they're also super fun. If you wore an Opposuit to prom or homecoming or, dare we suggest, YOUR WEDDING, everyone would want to get a picture with you. However, please let your date know far in advance. Can you imagine trying to match a prom dress to a bright blue plaid pattern?
Bright Colored Tuxedos and Suits
Pink Tuxedo – Shop Purple Tuxedo – Shop Red Tuxedo – Shop
Yellow Tuxedo – Shop Green Tuxedo - Shop
Ok, here is a good compromise to solve the problem addressed above. You wanna wear something bright, but your date has informed you that she can't find a dress to go with your multi-colored comic book print Opposuit? Solid colors, our friend. You still will look absolutely smashing in a purple tuxedo and you'll save your date a few headaches. OR you can do a little mix-and-match, and pair the vest or shirt or, really, ANYTHING from these sets with a black suit. A little peek of color might just do the trick!
