Prom Style Guide

Prom is coming up and your anxiety is already setting in. A million questions begin rushing through your mind. Who are you going to ask to spend this iconic night with? Do you take a risk and ask your crush who you think is way out of your league or play it safe by asking your best friend who you know you will still have a great time with? Once you’ve got your date set, you begin questioning how the night will play out, which could go so many ways...The Prom Queen could pull a Cady Heron and split her crown into pieces and throw it out like parade candy or your class could come together as one for an unplanned synchronized dance. Or maybe, the night won’t turn out as cliché as you expected, but you’ll still have a blast with your friends celebrating the near-ending to your high school careers. Whatever the case is, you’re going to want to look good while you’re there and that’s what we’re here for. Keep on reading for tips on how to dress for prom and make the night one to remember.

Secret Identity Men's Prom Suits

Doctor Who TARDIS Secret Identity     Captain America Secret Identity     Justice League Secret Identity

Marvel Comic Strip Secret Identity

Tuxes, like many things in life, are both expensive and completely unnecessary. Some of your friends will go to a cheap discount warehouse store for a prom suit or some may have suggested tux rentals, both of which are still expensive. Save some money, look better than that, and wear a suit from Fun.com! Plus, if you're graduating this year, kill two birds with one stone and use it for graduation occasions! Though you could go wearing a plain, black tuxedo with a plain, black tie, do you really want to look like every other guy in attendance? Probably not. Try on something a bit more extraordinary with our Secret Identity suits. With the Avengers, the Justice League, and Doctor Who designs, there’s sure to be one you can associate yourself with. The suits are the perfect way to be different, without being too different. Each suit has a unique, character-print lining to give your suit that extra "pizzaz". Show your date that you’re okay with going against the norm. After all, what’s more attractive than being 100% yourself?  Plus, with Avengers: Infinity War coming out this April, it’ll be a great conversation starter!

Alter-ego suits

Men's Prom Suits Alter Ego

Superman Alter Ego               Iron Man Alter Ego                Batman Alter Ego                TARDIS Alter Ego

One of your peers may think he's really standing out by wearing a navy blue prom suit, but if you want to steal his attention and wow the crowd, try on one of our Alter Ego suits. Now, if you’re not a fan of having all eyes on you, which we totally understand, then you’ll probably want to go with the Secret Identity route. But if you don’t mind the attention, throw on the Iron Man suit with your best pair of shades to make for the most Snap-able, Instagram-able, entrance. These will definitely beat out any tux that comes your way. Superheroes aren’t your thing? That’s okay, we have a suit that makes you look like a human TARDIS and if that’s not going to get people’s attention, then we don’t know what else will.

Opposuits and Suitmeister have created mens suits for those who need to show off their eccentric personalities. For the video game nerds, there is a pattern that makes you look like a human Pacman game. And for those who are already trading stocks at the age of 16, there’s a pattern that’s plastered with Benjamins. Whatever your personality may be, we most likely carry a suit/formal wear for it. Earlier on we suggested not to wear a tux...we weren’t specific enough. You shouldn’t wear a tuxedo, unless it’s a Dumb and Dumber tuxedo. Show up with your best friend in these tuxes and take the reins on your school's Prom.You've only got one (or two, or three, depending on your school) shot, so make it a night to remember!

Your friends just called you up and are ready to go dress shopping at some overly expensive Prom boutique, but for some reason, you’re just not that interested in spending hundreds on a dress you’ll probably only wear once in your life and then sell to a girl on Facebook for some extra cash. You've already bought a homecoming dress, as well as spent your fair amount on party dresses. So instead of worrying about whether you're going to wear a classy Prom dress or a two piece Prom dress, make a bold statement by wearing a suit!
