This summer, Moss Bros have all your prom, graduation and summer ball needs covered.

With graduation, summer ball and prom all just around the corner, there are a lot of opportunities to get fancy. This year we’ve teamed up with Moss Bros and put together a guide to save you from drab, cheap-looking suits and shirts that you’ve borrowed off your dad. Moss Bros are even doing an offer where they’ll give you a free shirt and a free tie when you buy a suit - so there really is no excuse for looking drab this summer. From statement suits to flashy shirts and those little touches that’ll take your look from ‘meh’ to ‘wow’, prepare for heads to turn when you walk in.

The Suits

The Look: The New Sophisticate

For a look that Bond would be proud of, choose a classic tuxedo with a twist. Keep the fit skinny to make sure your look stays fresh and modern, or change up the fabric with some snazzy navy blue jacquard.

Our Top Tip: Match your tux with black patent shoes so shiny you can see your face in them.

The Look: The Retro Rebel

It’s about time that the double-breasted suit made it’s comeback. Given a facelift for 2017 with navy sharkskin fabric and skinny tailoring that’s nothing like your grandpa’s suits, double breasted is the suit to be seen in this season.

Our Top Tip: This classic style will come alive with on-point detail - from perfectly polished brown shoes to a pocket square in eye-catching coral.

The look: The Risk-Taker

If your only criteria is that your suit has to make you stand out this summer, then step away from the black and the navy and choose a punchy pattern or bold colour. Claret’s always a sexy hue, and there’s something about check done right that either oozes class like David Gandy or channels a seductive Peaky Blinders vibe (don’t pretend you wouldn’t want to look as cool as Cillian Murphy).

Our Top Tip: If you don’t want to play it safe, choose colours and patterns that will raise eyebrows and pair with unshakeable confidence.

The Shirts

all your prom, graduation and summer ball needs covered - shirts

Shirts can take a suit from drab to fab instantly - so if you were planning on wearing your white shirt (you know, the only white shirt you own that’s crumpled on the floor at the back of your wardrobe) then you might want to rethink your strategy. Try a white shirt with a twist, like this Single Cuff Jacquard Houndstooth number that’ll appear classic from a distance, but reveal it’s true colours close up. Or, why not opt for a choice that’ll get you in the mood for your summer holiday? This Slim Fit Navy Palm Print Shirt is as close as you’ll get to sipping pina coladas in Mexico. If flash isn’t your thing, then try a Grey Slim Fit Textured Shirt and channel a cool, carefree attitude.

The Final Touches

No outfit is complete without accessories. With bow ties, skinny ties, normal ties, and pocket squares to decide on, there’s a lot of choice. Here’s our favourite three from the Moss Bros collection.

  1. Black Paisley Velvet Bow Tie - If you’d like to keep your look classic, but want to avoid being too boring and stuffy, then this is the perfect bow tie for you.
  2. Coral Skinny Tie and Pocket Square Set - Here’s one that will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. Coral’s a gorgeous and underrated colour that looks amazing against royal blue and navy.
  3. Wine Knitted Bow Tie - It’s wine coloured, it’s knitted, and nobody else will dare to wear it. Go wild.

So, whether you’re popping the champagne at graduation, stealing the show at your summer ball or simply getting kitted out for prom, Moss Bros have your back, like the most stylish wingman in the world. And don’t miss out on their ‘buy a suit, get a free tie’ offer
