Hey, Moms and Dads – it’s going to be Prom time, very soon. His date is going to “serve it” on The Big Night and your boy should too. From choosing his prom outfit to making an entrance, here’s how to make prom a night to remember.
Prep him like a pro and he’ll impress his friends when he hits the red carpet. Pick out a suit in the perfect cut, and ace the shoes and accessories; our men’s prom is a fun look at three styles guaranteed to have him looking sharp from head to toe.
From luxurious suits and trendy blazers to classic tuxedos in suave colors, these simple styles will make “ya mans look da bomb!”
Dapper AF Plaid:
If her dress is super simplistic, let him get wild with his prom night fit. A checked set serves subtle punk rocker vibes that feel so cool. You can be smart and light-hearted – it’s the perfect start to his teenage years, when he can project the look that women will love in just a few years.
This sequined-out suit will shine on prom night, plus every New Year's Eve, wedding, and date night after will help him stand out from the rest of his friends; it has a fresh appeal with its bold pattern and close-fitting design. A pocket square will add a dashing finishing touch – perhaps in the same colour as his date’s outfit?
Fiery Red Velvet:
Low-key is not this guy’s vibe. For a man that's as extra as his Mom is, a pop of velvet crimson will make him feel like a million bucks. This Blazer can instantly transform a shirt and smart jeans combo into a prom outfit. Typically available in a bolder range of colours than a standard suit jacket, they also tend to be cut more casually.
The Classic Black:
Timeless and classic, a sleek tuxedo will match perfectly in photos, no matter what his date’s dress looks like. Of course, every Gentleman should have his own dinner suit, so think long-term if you are going to go for this “Classic Bond” look. He will always be able to wear it in the future. Like a suit, tailored, slim and skinny fit variations of the tux mean that men of all sizes and tastes can pull it off, while a pair of black shiny shoes, silver cufflinks, and a smart dress should be paired with this to complete a polished look.
If he has finished his growth spurts, his Prom is the perfect event to introduce him to his neighbourhood tailor. This professional can transform, alter and restyle Thrift Shop purchases, one of Dad’s old suits, or even create something especially for him it will get him accustomed to looking great, as well as teach a great lesson in value.
