How to dress-up for prom on 2023

Sure, I lit an unlit towel on fire using hair dryers when I was getting ready for my prom. However, I’ve learned so much since then, and you’ll have all the wisdom of the past passed down to you on our blog and YouTube channel. (Also, hair dryers’ safety has been raised since then.)

Dressing up for prom is a blast. It’s also a simple technique that, more than any other guidance, will ensure you’ll be one of the prettiest guys in the room. Make it timeless and timeless, and remember to keep it stylish.

Three aspects of the same concept that you would like to appear just like someone who has taken charge of his attire, not someone whose clothes were draped on him by a friend or an opportunistic salesperson selling rental tuxes.

This means you should stay clear of the flashy clothes you’ll see everywhere. If you’re looking for an elegant suit or a tux, make sure you stay clear of everything — literally, any item that comes in a plastic-like, shiny, brightly colored fabric.

Instead, get yourself dressed in the sultry style of white and black. With just a few elegant shades of color here and there, you’ll provide an attractive alternative to those who wear silly, novelty-style “formal” outfits.

The True Black Tie Semi-Formal Option

Most of what we think of as formal attire is actually semi-formal, an elegant black tie and tuxedo dress. In reality, your prom will not be a strictly black-tie affair. It’s difficult to hold a large number of students from high schools at that level, to mention nothing of being unfair to those who do not have the funds to purchase the most elaborate outfits for rent.

However, it’s definitely an option for most proms, and it’s the best option for those looking elegant. Dress in traditional black tie attire when most of your friends wear costumes. You’ll be sure to make a statement.

It’s unlikely that you’ll want to purchase the tuxedo you’re wearing at this point of your life because you’re still growing, and they’re costly clothes to replace. Instead, you’ll rent. It is essential to inform the rental shop that you’d like a black tie in the proper dress code, such as:

The Jacket

Tuxedo-style jacket made of plain black with peaked lapels or the neckline with a shawl.

The lapels can be trimmed with black satin or left on the same as the jacket, but the latter is more classic and sharp-looking. If you’re planning on wearing flowers for a boutonniere (which I recommend), be sure to have an appropriate buttonhole.

The Trousers

The black is the same fabric as the jacket.

There should be a stripe of satin (the same satin as in the lapels) on the length of the trouser leg. They should be secured by suspenders, not belts, and the pants should be fitted with tabs to hold suspenders in the waistband. Don’t choose the less expensive metal clips hanging from your jacket when you dance.

The shirt

White with a rigid horizontal band (called the placket) at the point between the sides. The holes for buttons will be on both sides and secured using studs, not sewn-on buttons.

Cuffs must be French-style. The collar could be an ordinary point collar (like that you find on many good formal shirts) or a raised wing-style collar with stiff and elevated points.

The Tie

A simple Black bow tie. Make the time to learn how to tie a bow yourself instead of using a clip-on.

It’s as simple as tying your footwear. There are easy guides on the internet, even if your rental does not come with one (Wikipedia alone will get you through the process), And it will look better. People will take note of it.

The Shoes

You can rent formal shoes to match the dress; however, If you own an unadorned pair of black formal shoes that you own, I’d suggest shining them and wearing them instead.

An evening of dancing is an excellent way to break into shoes you’ve never used.

The Waist

You can choose to wear a long vest or a cummerbund. They are acceptable, but simple black satin is ideal for both. You can also wear a color cummerbund, but if you choose to, you should stick to sober and dark colors. Bright colors look terrible. Any colored vest of any type is just too to be considered. If you choose to wear the vest, you should stick to black.


Selecting the studs on your shirt and cufflinks from various choices is common. They must match or complement with plain black studs on your shirt and black and gold cufflinks. Refrain from mixing gold and silver metals with the same attire.

For a touch of color, consider adding a boutonniere — a plain red carnation is always striking, or you can talk to a florist about a matching boutonniere-and-corsage set for you and your date. Be sure to choose one with just one flower to you. Gentlemen shouldn’t carry a bouquet of flowers on their chests.

If this is too reserved for you, reconsider. The elegance of the black-tie ensemble highlights everything that goes with it.

One flower is a fantastic accent. A dark-colored cummerbund suddenly becomes an opulent fashion statement. Most importantly, it is a sign that you, not your partner or your extravagant outfit, will get the interest.
