Homecoming His Way: 2 Looks for Guys

It’s one of the best times during your high school experience, and what we look forward to at the beginning of every school year: Homecoming. Now that you ladies have gone through hundreds of dresses and maybe even hundreds of dollars to ensure that your night is perfect, it’s time to think about what your date will wear. Some may argue that it’s more difficult for ladies to get ready for formal events, but us gentlemen don’t fall too far behind. It’s tough for us, too.

Let’s break down a homecoming look that anyone’s date will look like a king in:

Nordstrom Homecoming for Him

Topman Skinny Fit Cotton Flannel Trousers (on sale right now!) | Calibrate Dress Shirt

Whether your date is a traditionalist or a guy who thinks outside the box, this look is fantastic. I paired a classic slim-fit black blazer with comfortable Topman Skinny Fit Trousers, then added a pop of color with a vibrant purple dress shirt. For guys who like to keep things more low-key, a white dress shirt would look just as sharp.

To finish off, I opted for a silver watch and a Ted Baker bow tie. A colorful bow tie definitely separates you from everyone else in the room and really solidifies your individuality.


For a stylish twist on the classic tuxedo, leather sleeves and lapels take things to the next level. I chose a cream-colored shirt and my favorite python dress shoes to complete the look.


You don’t always have to conform to society or play by the rules: The best part about fashion is there aren’t any rules!

Enjoy your homecoming!
