Prom Suits and Tuxedos Guide

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 (men's prom wear can be boring). 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, we've got quite a few prom tux ideas for you to choose from. Ditch the black and white prom suits - from bright orange to camouflage to the American flag, we've got tons prom tux colors and prom outfits for guys!

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 in these orange and blue prom suits. Know what would be even cooler? If you rolled up to prom in the infamous Mutt Cutts shaggin' wagon.


Mens Opposuits for Prom

Testival Summer Opposuit – Shop       Opposuits Pimp Suit – Shop

Opposuits Skulleton Suit – Shop     Opposuits Braveheart Suit – Shop

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 about your prom suit ideas. Can you imagine trying to match a prom dress to a bright blue plaid pattern?

Bright Colored Tuxedos and Suits

Yellow Tuxedo – Shop     Green Tuxedo - Shop

Ok, here is a good compromise to solve the problem addressed above. You wanna wear some unusual prom tux ideas, 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 prom suit/pink prom suit 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. These different colored tuxedos might just do the trick for your fun men's prom wear!

Some people really love superhero movies. Some people really love football. Some people REALLY LOVE HUNTING, and for those people, there are Mossy Oak themed tuxedos. You can go all out and wear head-to-toe camouflage tuxedos, or you could be a little more subdued, and stick with a little accent here and there, like a pocket square or bow tie. Just be prepared for the jokes your significant other will hear, like, "Oh, where's your date? I don't see him anywhere!" Everyone's a comedian...

We also have plenty of prom suits and tuxedo accessories in a wide range of different colors, if that's more up your alley. These options are great for wedding parties, too. The groomsmen can all wear their traditional suits, but with a fun-colored pair of suspenders or a flashy bow tie. Just think of the cute photos you can take on the day of the wedding, like all the guys pulling up their pant legs to show some bright green socks. Cute!

We hoped these options gave you some ideas on how to put some of your personality into your tux outfit. Prom season is coming soon, so you better start preparing now!
