Menswear Matric Dance Trends

GUYS, your matric dance is just as important as girls’ when deciding what to wear. Off course, you won’t necessarily go totally over the top like the ladies do with the booked nail and facial appointments – although no-one is saying you shouldn’t! – but what you decide to wear is important. You want to look like a man who took control of his overall look, including accessories and shoes, not a man whose outfit got draped over him by a relative or a rental tux boutique.



-IF you don’t want to go all out and be too showy, then stick to a simple tailored suit, but add a few elements to show you made an effort. Look dapper by adding a printed tie or coloured pocket square.White Shirt: Price On Request, Eurosuit

Fashion Editor I am a stylist and have worked with many celebrities. Magazines are a great platform to inform people on styling and fashion trends. Fashion gives freedom to people and allows them to be who they want to be. I loves to help readers to look as stylish as they can be, regardless of their body type, skin colour etc. It’s a great feeling to have knowing, that in helping someone choose an outfit, you’re also helping them feel more confident. When I'm not busy being a fashion editor I can be found designing and drawing.
