2016 PROM TRENDS FOR LADIES

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Two pieces aren't just for summer anymore! One of this year's biggest prom dress trends is the elegant two piece dress. 

This two piece style is the perfect representation of this season's trends. This year is full of colorful, unique, and refreshing styles to match every personality. 

Some of your favorite styles from 2015 are here for another year, plus 2016 has brought plenty of flare.

With so many styles to chose from this year, you can rest easy knowing there is enough to go around.

Some of 2015's fabulous trends have stayed around another year, including the fun and flirty short dresses.

Other trends are new this year like pastels, and floral patterns. Don't mistake the floral patterns for the vintage trend of years past. These are bold, floral patterns are not your grandmother's patterns. They are a new era all their own.  

Had your heart set on a vintage prom dress? Never fear, lace is still very trendy this season.

Flowers and lace not your thing? Want something a little more bold? Sparkles, Cut-outs, and Animals prints are also trending. There really is a style for every girl. 

Finally, the classic that keeps coming back but never gets tired, which is why they call it a classic, the little black dress. Black is simple, elegent, and very hot right now! 

 

The only problem with this year's prom trends is, how will you choose which one?

 

Don't forget the perfect accessory to your stylish dress, a well-matched Tux! Mr. Burch can help your prom date compliment his tux to your one of a kind dress. With hundreds of styles in stock, we are guaranteed to be able to find the perfect tux to go with your unique style.

WHAT NOT TO WEAR: PROM EDITION

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Don't overdo embellishments:
Adding a little bit of sparkle with body glitter, sparkly eye shadow, and the perfect jewelry is a must. However, any and all of these can easily be overdone and your photos will prove it. Too much bling will call attention to you in a negative way and upstage your look for prom.
 
 
 
Don't wear uncomfortable shoes:
Prom is a dance! And even if you don't plan on hitting the floor all night long, it will definitely distract from your look if you have to kick your shoes off after 30 minutes. Choose stylish, yet comfortable shoes so you'll look complete all evening. Try breaking them in before prom night by wearing them around the house and scuffing them up on your driveway to avoid slipping.
 
 
 
 
Don't get a spray tan or facial right before the big night:
This advice likely goes without saying...Spray tans look best after a few showers to tone them down. Most dresses look better with natural looking skin tones rather than orange. Spray tans are a great way to look sun-kissed without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays, but moderation is best about a week out.
 
 
The same is true for facials. While facials will rid your complexion of impurities and create a healthy glow, they can often cause breakouts before the benefits are realized. A week and half before prom is an optimal time to treat your skin to some r and r.
 
 
 
 
Don't spend a fortune on your dress:
Prom is a big deal, especially if it's your Senior Prom. But, you'll likely attend several more formal functions in college, and then plan a wedding someday. This means there will be lots of opportunity to buy formalwear, so don't blow the budget on a dress you'll probably not have the opportunity to wear again.
 
 
 
Don't wear anything too revealing:
Although prom is a right of passage you've been waiting for through most of your teenage years, as a promgoer you are still a minor and ought to dress like one. Plunging necklines and skirts that cling like second skin will take away from the youthful enjoyment that prom should be. Not to mention, it may give your parents a coronary as you meet your date at the door!
 
 
 
So, do yourself a favor, and create prom photos that you'll be proud to have follow you through life.

PROM FASHION FOR GUYS 2013

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Prom season is here and every where you look there is prom fashion....for her.  What about the guy? Mr. Burch Formal Wear is here to help out. Take a look below for some of our prom tips just for him.

1.  Make sure it fits

Make sure your tux fits like it should. This means the shoulder seams should hit at the actual shoulder (and not halfway down your deltoid), the sleeves don't come past your thumbs, and you can't fit more than a fist in between the fastened jacket and your chest. As for the pants, a little break is okay; a lot of break is unacceptable.

2.  Color can be good
You're used to the classic pairing of getting a jacket and pants together, but why not try something a little different?  Adding color with your tie or socks can really add some personality and still keep that polished formal look.

3.  Don't skip the details
Is your bow tie going to have classic tapered ends, or a more modern square shape? Think about which option will look best with your lapels, and in proportion with your overall outfit.  The finishing touches matter most during formal occasions, when they're the only things separating you from the rest of the penguin pack.

4.  Should you suit up?
If you happen to have a more open-ended dress code, you might skip the formal trend and go for a suit that shows a bit more personality but is equally appropriate for the big night.

5.  Groomed the right way
You're going to have to shave.  If you want to keep some scruff, keep it cleaned up. Plan your haircut at the right time. About one week before the big day is enough lead to allow your sharply shorn 'do to settle in. You don't want to pose for pics looking like you just got out of the chair.


6.  Less is always more
Going heavy on the cologne isn't going to help you look any better, and certainly won't be fun for those closest to you all night (i.e. your date). A night like prom can be an occasion to break away from your usual scent and try something new. 


7.  Different can be good
A guy who gets his date a rose corsage is like the guy who goes to a great Italian restaurant and orders spaghetti and marinara; there's nothing wrong with it, but so many more exciting options are out there! Try an orchid or calla lily that will look unique amongst the parade of roses on the big night. Same goes for your boutonniere.


8.  Always be a gentleman
Step up to the plate and impress her by opening car doors, helping her to her seat, and standing when she gets up to go to the bathroom with six other girls. Remember that her parents and friends are going to hear a recap of every single detail about the whole evening.  What will she say about you?
