Shopping for Prom Wear with Miguel’s Formal Wear


It’s that time of year again! As the prom season quickly approaches, it is a perfect time to start thinking about prom fashions. Whether your son or daughter is attending one or multiple proms, shopping for the perfect outfit should be done early in order to ensure that you can find the style and size they are looking for. At Miguel’s Formal Wear, we have everything you need to make sure your child looks their best this prom season.

Renting vs Buying

When it comes to choosing between renting versus buying a formal wear outfit for your child, there are a few things to consider. First, how often will your child be wearing their formal wear? If you anticipate that they will only need the clothing once, then it would likely make more sense to rent an outfit from Miguel’s Formal Wear rather than buying something new. On the other hand, if you believe they will be attending multiple events in the same season then it may be more cost effective to invest in purchasing a quality piece of clothing.

Suits vs Tuxedos

The next thing to consider when shopping for formal wear is whether you should purchase a suit or tuxedo. At Miguel’s Formal Wear we suggest that boys wear tuxedos while girls can opt for either suits or dresses depending on their personal preferences. The primary difference between suits and tuxedos is that tuxedos feature satin facings on the lapels, buttons and pockets as well as satin stripes down the outside leg seam of trousers (known as “braiding”). Tuxedos also traditionally come with accessories such as cummerbunds and bowties whereas suit jackets typically do not come with any accompanying accessories.

Why Festive?

In addition to offering traditional black tie ensembles, at Miguel’s Formal Wear we also offer festive options such as colorful jackets and patterned shirts which are becoming increasingly popular among young people today. From subtle pastel pink shades all the way up through vibrant red hues – there is something for everyone at our store! So don’t shy away from adding some color into your formal wear wardrobe this year – it’s sure to turn heads!
