If anyone knows a thing or two about looking decent, it’s me. And, when it comes to getting dressed up for prom, there are a few things to know. Being a man isn’t just about growing some balls and waiting for your voice to break. It’s about getting your sh** together, being accomplished. My plan is fool proof. These are what I call the five style commandments:
1. It’s all about the finishing touches. There’s no point suiting up if your hair looks like you’ve been driving around with the roof down all day. Slick hair styling is a must.
2. In all honesty, your trousers should be a perfect fit (thanks to me). However, a belt completes the look. Opt for a simple leather band and buckle if you want your suit to go the extra mile.
3. Tie or bow-tie. Never both (duh). If you’re a Fresh Prince fan, kick it back to the 80’s with the latter. For a classic look, it’s the tie. But at the end of the day, it’s whichever floats your boat.
