Trend Spotting: The Tuxedo Jacket

Tuxedo Jacket

Did I say tuxedo jacket trend? I meant tuxedo style-inspired clothing. The look is more than just the jacket, it can be the bow tie,  it can be the trousers. We recognized the trend as a unisex trend back in 2008 when  designers sent females down the runway in tux style attire. Above, Ralph Lauren, Alexander Wang and Jason Wu resurged the trend for Fall11 RTW. While some women stores will carry tux style clothing, you can try shopping in the men’s department for small sized tuxedos also. I understand that this look is not for everyone, so you can approach it lightly by wearing just a tuxedo jacket with your own ensemble instead of the entire outfit.

You can sport a tuxedo jacket for both casual and formal outings.  Try wearing one from the office with a sheer blouse and high-waisted pants, or on a cool night over a maxi dress. You can also rock a cute weekend look by teaming a tuxedo jacket with your favorite skinny jeans, a classic tee and ballerina flats. Stilldon’t be afraid to think of new ways to interpret the trend. No matter how you wear the tuxedo jacket, trust it will be hott! See which celebs have been spotted wearing the trend and go $hopping for your own luxe tux.
