Should You Match With Your Guy At Prom?

March 8, 2010 at 10:40AM by Gennifer Delman |

Prom Date Couple

Maybe you think it's a good idea for you and your prom date to coordinate your look, but does he? From the color of his tie to your corsage, it's important to keep in mind that your date may have an opinion about what he wants to wear (or doesn't want to wear)on your special night. Check out what these guys say about getting dressed for prom:

Joe from Somers, CT: "Guys shouldn't know what matching is. Wearing any color is cool -- If you look ridiculous, at least it'll make a funny story later on!"

Frank from Medfield, MA: "A guy should be able to wear whatever he wants. I'd rather not wear pink or purple, but if my date really wants to match, then I'd accommodate her needs somehow."

Luke from Poconos, PA: "My date wouldn't have gone with me if we weren't wearing the same color! Though we matched completely, I still think a guy has the right to wear whatever color he wants."

Steve from Greenlawn, NY: "A guy should wear any color he wants, but also be ready to compromise if his date wants to match. I didn't match at my prom, but I at least made sure the corsage complemented her dress. I definitely wouldn't wear pink, purple, or orange."

Jason from Pittsfield, MA: "I wore a white tux and she wore a white dress. A guy should be able to wear whatever color (I'd personally rock any color) he wants but be ready to face the consequence that comes along with that!"

As you can see, while some guys aren't phased by their color attire, others may feel uncomfortable wearing a particular hue. That doesn't mean that you have to limit your dress options. Here's a list of colors that make as perfect of a pair as you and your date do:

You: Pink Him: Silver

You: Purple Him: Teal

You: Navy Him: Gold

You: Blue Him: Lime Green

You: Salmon Him: Light Grey

Remind your guy that he can have fun with his outfit too with different tie lengths/widths and patterned vests. Have him check out for ideas!

Are they any colors you wouldn't wear to prom? Give us the scoop below!
