How To Build a Prom Look In 3 Easy Steps
Building a look for prom (and beyond), it really is simple and can be accomplished with just 3 easy steps.
- Step 1 - the coat
- Step 2 - the pants
- Step 3 - the accessories
Before We Get Started...
There are some very specific questions to ask yourself:
- Do I want to rent my look or own it?
- Do I want to go classic or trendy?
- (If you are going with a date) What color is my date wearing?
Picking out a jacket is fun. Here you get to really decide the base of the style you want to have at prom. Do you want to be in a classic neutral like a black or navy tuxedo? How about a traditionally cool grey suit? Or you can go bold with your coat fashion choice, with a fun patterned coat like our Black Paisley Tuxedo. Or our personal favorite fashion choice: the velvet collection!
*Isn’t the Green Velvet Tuxedo below just dreamy?
Now the second step might seem simple, but there are a few more options than you think. When it comes to picking out the pants for your look, you have 2 choices.
- Picking pants the same color as your coat.
- Or you can do something a more fun like a mix-and-match look. (This when you have a different color coat and pant – like a paisley coat and burgundy pants.)
