Prom season may be new to us in Britain, but we’ve already established three unbreakable rules: never rent your tuxedo, don’t neglect the finishing touches and always ask the girl first. After your
prom, experiment with splitting your tux up – pair the jacket or trousers with sharp separates and pieces inspired by British rock n’ roll style.
In terms of tailoring, the tuxedo is the undisputed prom king. Its iconic appeal has seen it worn by everyone from 007 to Alex Turner at this year’s Brit Awards. Just don’t forget the bow tie.
Reinvent the classic prom look by introducing some prints and patterns into your outfit. Swap the whiter-than-white dress shirt for a floral pattern or a geometric print, accessorize with a skinny tie.
If in doubt, lose the shirt and tuxedo jacket completely – match your skinny tuxedo trousers with an unfussy scoop neck tee and a black leather biker jacket.
