Remember how fabulous Eva Marcille looked in her awesomely chic, custom white tuxedo at Niecy Nash’s wedding? She took the less fussy approach with a cropped tuxedo pant, open blouse, and an undone bow tie.
The tuxedo is super versatile, and the fabulous thing about a tuxedo jacket is the numerous ways you can switch it up in your wardrobe. You can wear it at the office with a bow blouse and high waisted trousers for that feminine touch, or out on the town over a printed maxi dress.
Don’t limited the tux for week days only, it’s a great option to sport on the weekends as well. Give your off-duty style a suave update by teaming a tuxedo jacket with your go-to skinny jeans, a classic v-neck tee, and ballerina flats. Scrunch the sleeves up for an extra casual feel.
If your feeling really bold, brave the plunging neckline and go shirtless underneath. Instant sexiness is guaranteed, but just make sure to use fabric tape to adhere the jacket to your skin to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. The goal is to keep it sexy, not trashy.
Don’t think you just have to go with the traditional black and white color scheme. If you want to stand out, hunt for pieces in different textures and fabrics like tweed, cashmere, satin, wool, silk, and velvet.
Finish this look with a bold berry lip and complimenting nails and keep your hair simple with soft waves or a messy ponytail. Add an oversize clutch and simple pumps and jewelry to top it all off.
No matter what ensemble you dream up, It’s almost impossible not to look luxe in a tux. We provided some budget friendly options below. –mckenzie harris
