HOMECOMING DO'S AND DON'TS

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

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.
 
DO
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.
 
 
 
DON'T
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!
