Ladies we know you’re sorted, you have been planning for the YOU Spectacular Awards since the beginning of the year, and you’ve been helping your partner look for something to wear too.  But for those guys who put off looking for an outfit, here are a few guidelines to follow:

Do go for the bowtie- the bowtie is back and adds that little extra to  your outfit, just think of Leonardo Di Caprio and Bradley Cooper at this year’s Oscars.

Do go for the traditional black suit and white shirt but make it a skinny/slim fit Tux and add a bowtie.

Don’t wear anything made out of shiny material, otherwise you’ll be catching the light and blinding everyone. Oh and the shiny tuxedo is so 19 we shouldn’t have gone back there!

Do go for colour, whether it’s with your tux or a coat. Go with a slate blue tux a la Kevin Spacey, or a warm burnt orange coat over a black/ brown Tux.

Don’t wear sneakers! Coloured or otherwise, yes I hear the grumbling about how sophisticated the leather ones look, no. They’re still sneakers.

Do look for inspiration on social media, Pinterest and Instagram in particular. That way you can see whether what you have in mind will work and what appeals to you.

Do bring your sense of fun and have a good time! Looking forward to seeing you there!
