Convinced that a black tuxedo is not for you? Find out the rules and availability of colored tuxedos for your special occasion.
A colored tuxedo brings memories of the high school prom in the 1970's. Baby blue coat and pants with a matching bow tie was the optimum fashion statement. The colored tuxedo even had white or matching blue shoes!
Whether you are looking for a baby blue tuxedo, or white, pink, periwinkle or orange, think of the occasion and what color your companion will be wearing. For a wedding, consider black or grey; it is traditional and classic. White or ivory is an alternative to black, but only in a summer daytime wedding.If you and your bride agree to use colored tuxedos, there are many options. See your local tuxedo vendor or the internet for available rental or purchase options.
For a prom, you have more colors to chose from:ranging from pastel shades of blue, strawberry pink, or yellow to the darker colors such as navy, brown, orange and cinnamon. There are even camouflage tuxedos available!
There is a popular trend for wearing a retro or vintage tux, bringing back colors from the 1970's and 1980's – not only the baby blue, but rust orange, teal blue and bright zoot-suit replications.
If the idea of a colored tuxedo scares you, there is a more subtle alternative. Bring color and individuality to your tuxedo with a colored vest. Not only can you bring back the baby blue, but also have fun with prints.
