Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

A girl can choose from a million dresses; a guy basically puts on a tuxedo. But Ron Sacino of Sacino’s Formalwear & Men’s Clothier has a list of ways for guys to make sure they look like one in a million.
1. Make certain you coordinate with your prom date. You don’t have to match, but be sure to wear a style and color that compliments your date’s outfit.
2. Choose a style and accessories that state who you want to be for that night: classic, contemporary, trendy or just plain elegant? If it all seems overwhelming, your formal-wear specialist will help you with this.
4. Used to straight neckties? Straight, four-in-hand ties started popping up after 9/11, because people didn’t want to look so celebratory, like at the Academy Awards. It was popular for years but now the bow tie is making a come back big time. Select a bow tie and return to that classic look.
6. Outrageous colorful and patterned designer socks add a lot of fun and a surprise element to your outfit.
7. Wear a pair of your dad’s cufflinks to add some tradition to your special event. This is your “rite of passage,” and it’s like taking your dad along . . . but without the hassle.
8. Girls do it, so why not you? If you can, wear a different hair style for the night; throw everyone off a bit.
9. Hats and canes and formal gloves are reminiscent of classic old movies — and classic elegance.
10. Now’s the time (probably the only time) to flash up those formal shoes a bit with neon shoe laces (see inset photo on cover). Your feet will say, loud and clear, “Hey, I’ve arrived to the party!”
