Fall is here and football season has started. That can only mean one thing - time for HOMECOMING! For those of you who might not have attended before, don't worry, we're here to help. Take a look at our do's and don'ts listed below.
Dress up: While not as formal as prom, homecoming has become an occasion to break out a formal dress. Whether long and elegant or short and sassy, just make sure your dress is comfortable. It’s going to be a long night. This applies to you gentlemen as well. You can dress up in a tuxedo or wear a suit but make sure the fit is right and you're comfortable.
Coordinate: Some girls go as far as giving their date a color swatch to assist them when tie shopping. As a rule, tie/dress should be in the same color family.
Wear comfortable shoes: Super high heels look great, but won’t feel great after a while. Many girls pack ballet slippers or flip flops for a quick change before hitting the dance floor.
Take time for proper grooming: Get a mani/pedi. Get your hair done. Gents, get a haircut early in the week to give your style time to “grow in.” Pack mints. Trust me.
Wear a hat: Who do you think you are? Ducky from Pretty In Pink?
Coordinate multiple articles of clothing: This is too matchy-matchy and a definite DON'T.
Get your date a nose-gay: Do you even know what that is? Girls prefer a small wrist corsage.
Overdo the make-up: There’s nothing worse than seeing a smear of base or blush on your date’s shirt collar after a slow dance.
And most importantly: DON’T sweat the details! Have fun and enjoy yourself. That’s what high school is all about. Contact Mr Burch for all your tuxedo rental or suit needs. We're here to help!
