2008 Prom Menswear

Whether you go formal in a tuxedo, classic in a suit, or casual in jeans and a vest, Kidzworld offers up some style suggestions for what guys can wear to the prom this year!

Tuxedos

If you're a traditional kind of guy, then a tuxedo is your best bet. It's the most formal gear you can wear to prom, consisting of a single or double-breasted jacket, bow tie and cumberbund worn around the waist, kind of like a belt. You can even get a jacket with tails (no, not the animal kind), but then you might hear penguin jokes all night...

Classic Suits

A classic black suit with a solid-colored tie is for the dude who's not sure what to wear. It's simple, it's stylish and it's sure to make you look great at your prom! If you're stuck on a tie color, just match it to your date's dress.

Funky Suits

Just cuz prom is a formal event doesn't mean you can't show off your signature style! Add a twist to the classic suit by opting for patterns like pinstripes or houndstooth checks, and colors like charcoal or navy. Complete your outfit with cuff links, a belt and a tie so hip you'll wanna wear it even after prom's over!

Casual Styles

If your school doesn't have strict dress code rules about the prom, consider wearing a dress shirt with a skinny tie and a pair of Chucks for some retro style, or even a cool T-shirt and vest over jeans for an edgier look. Remember, you can look dressy without actually dressing up!

    I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

    I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.
