Lady on tux…….



Tired of wearing fancy dresses? Take a cue from Waje, Vimbai and Susan Peters, wear tuxedo designed for women

Why it is so hot

Tuxedo jackets are quite popular these days among fashion conscious ladies who simply love an elegant look regardless of whether they are at work  or at a party. For women, tuxedo jackets can be a great option for both casual and formal occasions.

1. Keep It fitted

The tuxedo trend is all about embracing tailored looks, so make sure that when you’re pulling it off, all your pieces are well fitted. Go for slim cut trousers and fitted blazers to really make this look work.

2. Stick to separates

If you’re not keen on an all-out tuxedo look, stick to separates instead. Pair a chic white tuxedo blazer with black leather trousers or a floaty chiffon dress. Alternatively, team some tuxedo trousers with a silky blouse and layered necklaces.

3. Wear heels

Vamp up your basic tuxedo with killer stiletto heels. Heeled shoes will add a feminine touch and make the tuxedo look more glamorous. An almond toe or pointed pump is timeless whereas a strappy heel can be more modern.

4. Make it monochrome

Tuxedos look extra sleek when worn in a monochrome colour palette. Black on black is foolproof but if you’re feeling adventurous, a white on white tuxedo is fresh and stylish.

5. Add colour

A tuxedo can be a bit of a blank canvas, so inject some life into your look with some colour. You could go for beauty touches like a colourful lipstick or manicure, or maybe with accessories like a colourful clutch or heels.  Adding a shot of colour is a stylish way to make a statement.

6. Add touches of lace

Channel your inner femme fatale by teaming your tuxedo with lacy elements. Instead of a plain blouse, wear a lace camisole or bodice under your tuxedo jacket. A hint of lace peeking out from your tuxedo jacket looks stylish and seductive.

7. Play with texture

Try wearing a tuxedo jacket in an interesting texture. A lush velvet tuxedo jacket can give you a sense of opulence whereas a sequined number can come across as more playful.
