Suit up this party season and add a tailored touch to your going-out wardrobe…
It started in the swinging ‘60s, when YSL sent their (now, legendary) Le Smoking suit down the runway. The tux quickly became the epitome of sex-appeal and has been gracing red carpets ever since. However for AW18, we think it’s time to mix it up. From blazer dresses to tux-front playsuits to elevated co-ords there’s plenty of fresh ways to embrace tailoring. Read on and discover the trend that’s tailor-made for everyone…
Dress to Impress
Double Breasted Tuxedo Dress £45
Recently seen on our newest favourite Royal Meghan, the tuxedo dress is high on the radar, with its impeccable tailoring and mini length, the Duchess of Sussex wowed (and 100% broke the royal dress code, go Meghan!) in her tux. She proved it’s a great alternative to your fail-safe party LBD, but is equally stylish and appropriate for the office too. Be inspired by aoife_walsh_x and choose a double breasted front or a chic military-inspired look.
Look the Business
Piped Wide Leg Trousers £30, Black Piped Longline Jacket £38
Want to up the ante on your festive wardrobe further? Introduce a touch of glamour to proceedings in a tuxedo style co-ord. This fashion-forward tux will keep you looking elegant all day long. Take notes from Monicabarbosa87 and opt for a suit that effortlessly caters to curves with its flattering wrap front and nipped-in waist.
Work and Play
Black Embellished Tuxedo Playsuit £45
Raise the fashion factor and your hemline, with a tux playsuit. Seen on more A-listers than we can even list, this daring must-have is worthy of any Christmas night out with the girls. And while it may be the star of the show, don’t forget about the accessories. Finish of the look with an on-trend embellished bag like laurennicolefk to make your entrance in style.
