tux picsIt’s that special time of the year again. Birds are starting to migrate back north, the ground hog has seen its shadow, and spring is just around the corner. That means prom season is also approaching. Whether you’re the type of guy who likes to plan things out months in advance or consider yourself a last minute shopper, you will want to make sure you do whatever you can to make prom night memorable for you and your date. Are you absolutely clueless when it comes to shopping for the top trends in prom fashion? You’re not alone. That’s why we’ve compiled a shortlist of prom tuxedo rules for you and your buddies to consider.

1. Spend Wisely

You don’t have to be Rockefeller to rock your prom night in style. Think about your special evening and budget accordingly. You will want to budget everything from the corsage you plan on giving your date, to the top-notch tuxedo you want to wear. If you don’t plan on going attending too many formal occasions within the next few years, consider shopping at a prom tuxedo rental store. Prom tuxes can be rented for a fairly reasonable price. There’s no point in buying something you will never wear again, especially if you’re like most guys in high school, still growing.

2.Invest in Socks

Don’t ruin your prom outfit by wearing the wrong socks. Keep in mind that you’re NOT in gym class, so wearing white socks is simply unacceptable. Invest in a few decent pairs of black socks. Black goes with just about any color and is the standard color for socks, when it comes to looking your best.

3. Style Does Matter

Even though you didn’t get crowned the “Best Dressed” as your Senior Superlative, the style of your prom tuxedo still matters. You don’t want to walk into prom only to find that you are over or underdressed. The style of your tuxedo should be considered when shopping or renting a tuxedo. Take the time to talk to your date about the style of prom dress she is wearing. She will appreciate the fact that you are thinking about her preference when it comes to style and she may even give you a few pointers! After all, a poorly dressed prom date is a reflection on her, as well.
