Just because you happen to be male doesn’t mean prom night isn’t a big deal. And it certainly doesn’t give you the green light to chuck on your ‘best’ Converse, denim and bomber combo.
Make an effort boys – ditch the hoodie and pull on your best threads. It doesn’t require a big-money investment to look the business and there’s always the option to hire rather than buy your way to graduation night success.
There’s no rule when it comes to suit wear and remember smart can also be comfortable with lighter-style and coloured suits, grandad collar shirts or plain-coloured long-sleeved tops. It’s that ‘I’ve made the effort but I’m still edgy’ look and will ensure you don’t feel stuffy or restricted for your all-day celeb-rations.
Light Blue Crosshatch Skinny Suit, topman.com, £130
Feeling brave? Then why not impress your soon-to-be former class mates by stepping out in a lesser-seen pink suit?
There will come a time in your life when you wouldn’t entertain such a bold suggestoin, but now is not that time. Now is the time to express yourself via the medium of High Street fashion retailers, in this case H&M. Go on, you won’t regret it, although you might.
Old Rose Skinny Fit Suit Trousers and Jacket hm.com, £104.98 (for both)
Who ever said your big-night clobber has to be a permanent purchase? Nobody, that’s who.
And that’s why kilt hire was invented, to kit out people like you on a one-night only basis.
The bonus is that you simply hand it all back and let them deal with the rest.
