We can anticipate seeing the young, fly and flashy boys favoring monochromatic threads, with a pocket square offering a splash of color. Bowties will also be a hit this spring prom-goers as we them partnered with vests, which have been a consistent fashion staple for the past few years. As always, athletic footwear seems to always make its way onto the dance floors of prom nights everywhere. Selena Gomez’s ensemble at the Grammy’s transformed her into living and breathing statue of gold, so tastefully done that Joan Rivers, the Chief of the Fashion Police complemented her classy and age-appropriate gown.
