have prom accessory needs too! Whether you are looking
for that one of kind vest that says who you are, or you
are looking for ideas to make your prom night special;
you have come to the right place.
Bow ties are just fine, but they are not mandatory. Guys
have so much more to choose from these days and ties are
a great way to get a different look or a bit of an edge.
How about wearing a bright color or a punk-inspired striped
tie? You could even sport a vest without a tie. You'll
be more comfortable, but still formal enough for Prom.
Another idea is to borrow or buy a black suit and purchase
a shirt and tie in the same color. Blues, burgundy, green
and silver work well. Patent tux shoes may not be your
style. Comfortable dress shoes can work just as well

Coordinate with your date
Before you even consider your tuxedo options, check
with you’re date about the color and material
of her dress and if she has any preferences on your
tux style (you would be surprised at the fashion advice
your girl has to give!). A coordinating cummerbund or
tie adds a very cool touch to your whole prom look;
plus your date will be thrilled.
Don't be afraid of trendy
It isn't good to go completely trendy (powder blue polyester
suits from the '70s do not make good memories). A vest
always looks good, but a cummerbund adds a classy touch.
Take a cue from celebrity red-carpet style and don a
monochromatic (all one color) look or add an unexpected
splash of color. Little details do count Have your hair
trimmed a week before prom and try styling it a few
different ways to see what you like best. Lightly splash
on a favorite cologne.
HOW TO ASK HER
If you get a little lost when it comes to asking out
the girl of your dreams, we've got a few tips to help
you through the rough spots:
Be Clear And Direct
Come right out and ask her, "Would you like to
go to the Prom with me?" Dropping hints or skirting
the issue can cause uncomfortable moments for both people
If You Get A No . . .
Either choose another girl to ask or make other plans
with a friend or a group. If she doesn't give you a
direct answer (she may be waiting for someone else to
ask her), tell her you'll ask her for a final answer
in a couple of days. That way you stay in charge and
you're not left in limbo!
Don't Ask In Front Of Her Friends
This is between you and your prospective date. Besides
-- some girls are nicer and easier to talk to when they're
away from their friends. Ask either when you have a
private moment together or over the telephone after
Don't Ask Via A Note Or Through
Asking for a date is hard, that's for sure, and rejection
can be cruel, but asking through a friend or by a note
basically says you have no confidence, which may be
a turn off.
Asking By Phone
Have a short lead-in conversation first before asking.
Jot down a couple of light topics to discuss, such as
a homework assignment or an activity you both have in
common. But get to the point in under 5 or 10 minutes
before she gets restless and has to hang-up. It's not
going to get any easier, so just do it!
Don't Say "Maybe" Or "Probably"
Either you're asking her or you're not. She might get
so irritated with you that she won't go even if you
make up your mind later on!
Don't Wait Until The Last Minute!
If you're only procrastinating out of fear, an earlier,
more confident asker might snag the prize! Most girls
need at least two weeks notice so they can shop for
a dress. If you're in a relationship or it's assumed
you are taking a certain someone you can plan even a
month in advance to ask.
If it feels right for your personality, you can ask
her in an unexpected way! If you live near the beach,
spell it out in the sand. Or sing her a song with funny
rhyming lyrics. Bring a rose! Girls love to feel special,
so if you can do that you've probably won half the battle!
