Double Breasted suits are perfect prom outfits for guys, especially a grey one that has a league of its own; here, I’ve selected a pink shirt to match the grey suit because it’s a flattering combination. However, if you’re not comfortable with it, you can try light blue or white.

8. Charcoal Suit, Matching Tie, White Shirt

Matching your tuxedo & suits with your date is pretty much the trend these days; keep it simple by wearing a tie or waistcoat that coordinates with your date’s dress.  However, don’t match everything, or you’ll look like you’re trying too hard to get attention.

Complete the look with black oxford shoes.

There are specific rules to follow when it comes to suits, and getting them wrong can undoubtedly break your style. One such practice is to match all the leather items, e.g., if your shoe is brown, the belt should be of the same color scheme.
