Tips for Prom, a Gentleman's Guide

SAIF MOHAMMED, Contributing Writer

Prom is considered one of the most important days of your high school tenure. During the last weeks of school, seniors all across the country get dressed up and show up to a dance with their classmates. People go to all sorts of measures to ensure the most opulent and perfect night. To help out anyone reading this article, I have gathered a list of tips in order for all of us to look great on prom night.

  1. Choose a well-fitting suit or tuxedo in a classic color like black, navy, or charcoal gray.

  2. If wearing a suit, opt for a crisp, tailored dress shirt in a complementary color.

  3. Select a stylish tie or bow tie that complements your suit and shirt.

  4. Invest in a good pair of dress shoes that match your suit, such as oxfords or loafers. Make sure they are clean and polished.

  5. Pay attention to grooming details: trim and style your hair, clean and trim your nails, and maintain a well-groomed appearance overall.

  6. Accessorize appropriately with a belt, cuff-links, and a watch. Ensure they match your overall attire.

  7. Take care of your attire by ironing or steaming out any wrinkles before the event.

  8. Finally, wear a smile and exude confidence. Feeling good in your attire will make you look even better.

The most important thing to remember about prom is to have fun with your friends. As seniors we sometimes get so wrapped up in thinking about our future, we forget to live in the moment. Taking the time to relax and having fun with your friends is the best way to have a night you will never forget.
