Your prom night is one of the biggest nights of your high-school career. It's a chance to stand out and to make memories that will last for years to come. It's important to look your best -- because even if you can blot out the memory of that terrible haircut, the pictures won't forget.
For men, the prom tuxedo makes the look. Make sure you look your best by remembering some of these prom tuxedo "don'ts" and being careful not to make these mistakes:
Don't Button Up Every Last Button
Typically, the more buttons on your jacket, the more formal the style. But that doesn't have to mean that you button up every last button to finish the look. You can look smooth and polished with a formal coat, but you should still leave the last button (or two) undone. Otherwise, you are going to look like tight-wrapped salami in your coat -- and that's not sexy.
Don't Clash with Your Date
You may have your sights set on a retro powder-blue prom tuxedo, but if your date plans to wear a stunning and sophisticated crimson gown, you are going to make both of you look ridiculous. Make sure you coordinate with your date to ensure that your styles and colors are complimentary, making you both look your best.
Don't Overlook Your Shoes
Your shoes aren't just functional coverings that protect you from stepping on a random nail in the parking lot. They help complete your outfit. Make sure your socks and your shoes match the color and style of your tux for a complete, polished look.
You want to look your best on your prom night, and your choices for your prom tuxedo can make a big difference. You don't need a professional stylist to make you look like James Bond -- you just need to make sure you stay away from these prom "don'ts."
