Style Inspiration for Prom 2018

Looking for inspiration on what to wear to prom?  We've put together some  prom styles inspired by Bond, the 1920s, and celebrity fashion icons.  Check out our inspiration pics, and the suggested styles to make a fashion statement this prom season!

Classic Tuxedo inspired by James Bond

For a formal dance, you can’t go wrong with the classic look that James Bond rocks in every movie.  A well-fitted black tuxedo with either a shawl or peak lapel will do a great job of imitating Bond’s style.  Complete the look with a black bow tie and cummerbund, double points if you learn how to tie a self-tie!  

Our suggestion: Classic Black Peak Lapel or the Slim-fit Shawl Tuxedo

Colorful Tuxedo inspired by Ryan Gosling

The sweetheart of the big screen, Ryan Gosling, frequently rocks a colored suit to many a red-carpet event. Try a blue or burgundy tuxedo for a bold color choice that compliments your date’s dress instead of wearing a tie that perfectly matches the color. 

Our suggestion:  Navy or Burgundy with Black Peak, Indigo Peak Suit

Tails Tuxedo inspired by John Legend

If you’re looking for a truly unique way to stand out at the Prom, consider wearing an old-school jacket in an updated way! Pair a tails tuxedo jacket with ultra slim pants, a bowtie and cummerbund to bring the new millennium to this 1980s inspired suit style. Check out how John Legend pulled it off on the red carpet here

Our suggestion:  Peak or notch tails jacket in black.  Ditch the pleated shirt for a fitted microfiber in white or black for a more modern look.

White Dinner Jacket inspired by The Great Gatsby

The 1920s were filled with great fashions for both menswear and women's fashion alike.  The white dinner jacket is a classic look that will certainly have you standing out from the prom crowd. 

Our suggestion:  Pair with black pants and even a black shirt for a unique twist to this style!  We also have black and white wing tip tuxedo shoes for a truly Gatsby inspired look.
