Looking for some inspiration? Give the menswear trend a try in a colour block tuxedo jacket with contrast lapels! Although tuxedo sounds pretty formal, the versatility of this menswear staple is limitless. Wear a tux jacket for women with a pair of long flared pants for a formal look or on the contrary, super-casual with the cuffed sleeves.
“Works either oversize or shrunken. This jacket looks great layered over a basic T-shirt or dressed up with a statement necklace.” – Rachel Zoe
Celebrities who wear tuxedo jackets
Rose McGowan looked deliberately intriguing at the 2011 amfAR Inspiration Gala. The main reason was a glamorous satin Tom Ford suit consisting of a black-lapel ivory tux jacket and satin pants. Rose kept her hair and makeup maximum ladylike to balance out the masculine and feminine root gender.
At the NY premiere of The Decision movie, Katie Holmes worked the menswear trend with a major help of designer Stella McCartney. The actress chose a long white tuxedo jacket (McCartney, Resort 2011) which she paired with cropped pants and polka dotted heels by Dolce & Gabbana.
Eva Longoria, known for her ladylike fashion choices this time sported the black-and-white tuxedo jacket. The International Film Festival’s attendees admired her game with proportions as she paired a shorter jacket with long flared pants from Gucci. Très chic chic!
Anne Hathaway looked equally appealing while heading to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
