prom, start planning your attire. Decide if you are going to be sporting a

themed. No matter what look you choose, make sure it reflects your
personality so that you'll feel comfortable wearing it.

has purchased her gown before ordering your tuxedo, just in case she
changes her mind while out shopping.

accessories. Adding colored accessories to your tux is a great way to
coordinate with your prom date's dress and make your pictures pop.

every city has them. You may have to make several trips before you find
one that fits your body and your style, but it is worth it. By definition,
tuxes are worn only several times a year at most, so it shouldn't have
much wear. Buy your own studs, cufflinks, shirt and black cummerbund and

cummerbund. This will provide you with a basic, elegant
"black-tie" look that will match any formal outfit your date may
wear. You can always rent white or colored accessories should the need

evening. Place your request well in advance of the event. Choose a colored
cummerbund that matches your date's dress, or opt for the ever-stylish

are key for a comfortable and stylish pant, while a well-fitting shoulder,
back and arm will ensure a sharp-looking jacket.

and shirt unique to your taste and build. Jacket cuts vary from cropped to
smoking. Shirtfront options include fine pleats or delicate ribs, black
enamel or pearl-like buttons.
