Fashion & Beauty Lifestyle

Last weekend we changed the time as we moved the clock forward… meaning summer is upon us: FINALLY! Who says springs says June which inevitably says graduation and prom. Any students, whether you're finishing high school, you're an undergrad or finishing grad school has always dreamed of this event that will be one to remember!

Several styles are available: the princess gown, you know, that Cinderella dress. A medieval style that looks as it was inspired from Robin Hood. A classic black one with a gothic side à la Cruella. Fashionista style fifth Avenue edition or the classic timeless refined gown or even a bohemian style Jessa would wear in Girls. The most important thing here is to educate yourself on the type of venue your school will have (is it at the school's cafeteria or at the Marriott? Some details will guide you to make the best choice on your dress. Also, ask your classmates what they're thinking of wearing… that too will give you some great tips on what you should aim for. 

As for you guys, the timeless classic suit is obviously your best ally. With a tux, you'll probably be the winner of the most overdressed attendee (but if you wear it with all the confidence in the world, I mean… why not?) You can go for the classic 5-piece suit, just remember that navy blue is the same as black and won't look too formal as a black one usually does. Or else, if you feel a tad more eccentric, a Pierre Lapointe inspired jacket might look on point!

Here are some looks that might give you some much needed inspiration before you go dress/tuxedo shopping:
