2019 Prom Trends for Men

When it comes to choosing the right tuxedo, you want to look sharp and stand out from the crowd while still putting together a polished look. Fortunately for men, there are more choices than ever before when it comes to finding a truly stylish and trendy tuxedo that makes a statement. We took a closer look at top designers, style icons and celebrities are wearing and put together a list of tuxedo trends for 2019 that will help you look your best.  

White on White

If you appreciate the classic sophistication of traditional tuxedos, try combining a white jacket, white dress shirt and white bowtie. The white on white look creates a stunning look that harkens back to the 1920s. Choose a slim cut for a truly modern take on this tuxedo.

Electric Colors

Who said that a tuxedo has to be black or white? Why not really wow them with an electric turquoise, blue or even green suit? The color will make your look pop and might just be the perfect complement to your date’s dress. You can even pair the suit with a nice black t-shirt and stylish sneakers for a look that is more Hollywood and rockstar than prom. This look will be sure to turn heads and make you photo ready.

Subtle Florals  

This trend allows you to sport a unique tuxedo with a more understated pattern and color scheme for an overall look that is formal and sophisticated, yet still trendy. Black floral print on a black suit provides contrast and a metallic look without being overpowering. You can find this same subtle floral contrast in practically any color, including red, blue and gold. The color depends on just bold you want to go. Just remember that it is always a good idea to pair a more unique signature piece with solid colors and well-tailored pants and shirts. Don’t go overboard with patterns and risk taking the look too far. The right amount of floral patterning and contrast is the perfect way to put a new spin on a classic suit.

Red Velvet  

Looking to stand out from the crowd? If you are confident enough to sport a red velvet dinner jacket with black trim, you are sure to get noticed and complimented for your stylish taste. While this trend isn’t for the faint of heart, it is bold and handsome. The contrast of black, red and white is loud enough to be seen and heard while still maintaining a level of sophistication.

Loud Plaids

That’s right; plaid is in when it comes to prom styles for 2019. The most important thing about rocking this look is to make sure that your date is wearing a simple, solid colored dress. You want to look good as a couple and if she is also going for a bold print, the combination could be a real eye sore. As long you coordinate outfits, a suit with big plaid patterns and dark coloring can provide a formal look that is still a little laid back. Pair your plaid suit with a solid colored dress shirt, turtle neck or t-shirt, depending on your own taste and style.

Go Grey

While most people associate black and white with formal wear, a well-cut grey suit can be just as impressive. It is a more subtle look that is perfect for a variety of occasions. Investing in a great grey suit now can prepare your for job interviews, weddings and other events. It is a versatile option that can be dressed up or down with accessories. Feel free to add a pop of color with the right tie, vest or pocket square. As long as you get the right fit, you can get a lot of use out of a stylish grey suit.

For 2019, there are plenty of new prom trends that will help you choose a stylish and original outfit that will make your night even more memorable.
