Surviving Prom Season
The Clock is Ticking
The origin of the prom is a bit of a mystery. The earliest known reference to this rite of spring comes from a college student’s journal in 1894. What we do know is that proms have a glamour and a glitz and by following these helpful tips, you can make the prom and the weeks that lead up to it, as stress-free as possible, not just for your child, but for you as well.
A Step By Step Guide
with Ben Wichland
1. Are you going to with a date or with a group? Going with a date makes color matching a necessity. If your date has already picked out her dress, it’s not going back, so shop early for identically-colored accessories. Wait too long and you’ll have to settle for something that may not match. On the other hand, if you’re going with a group, you can design your own look.
2. Determine your price range. This will give you a realistic starting point and keeps you from getting overwhelmed by the vast array of choices. Best to look for an all-inclusive package unless you’re building your own ensemble. And very important, do not forget the shoes!
3. Go to the store and get fitted. One size does not fit all. To look your very best, be sure to work with someone who can fit you properly for your specific body style.
4. Finalize your colors. If you’re color matching, bring a swatch of your date’s outfit. Colors over the phone are nearly impossible to get right. This applies to your suit, your vest, tie, pocket square and socks.
5. Try on your outfit. A tuxedo is like no other suit you’ve ever worn. For that reason, it’s crucial that you try it on in the store. The clothier will assess the fit, determine if alterations are needed, and instruct you how to properly put it on and wear it.
For best results, allow enough time to work through these steps. That way, you’ll have more options, reduced stress, with quicker service and faster turnaround. The longer you wait, the harder the choices become. Styles and colors rent out and once they’re gone, you won’t find them. Start early, follow these guidelines and have the time of your life on prom night!
