The Tuxedo Trend in 2011/2012

This autumn / winter, the easiest way recreate this look in your own wardrobe is by playing with it. Here are our tips on how to master the tuxedo trend:
  • Investing in a tuxedo shirt is a great way to create the 'tuxedo' effect even when worn without a jacket. 
  • If you want to stand out, stay clear from the obvious interpretation and hunt for pieces in different fabrics like, tweed, cashmere, satin, wool, silk and velvet. 
  • Another way to stand out is by way of pants that sport a contrast stripe or a trim down each leg. Alternatively pants with wide legs and a cummerbund work the look perfectly, and keep the statement below your waist.
 Tuxedo pants with cummerbund
  • For uniformity, swear by one colour from neck down and it doesn't have to be strictly black or white.
  • To stay on the masculine side of the fence, accessorize the look with a bow tie, chiffon neck tie, or suspenders.

The bow tie for women
  • Brave the plunging neckline and go shirtless underneath. Instant sexiness guaranteed!
  • Flirt with the options of an underneath shirt - a sleeveless sheer chiffon top or a lacy silk blouse.
  • Embrace the 70s trend and flaunt high waisted flare-leg pants, paired with a structured dinner jacket.
  • There are no real boundaries when determining the length of the tuxedo jacket, other than what best flatters your height and figure. It can either end at the waist or go all the way down to the knees.
  • Leather brogues worn with cropped pants and a double-breasted dinner jacket can garner a successful attempt at androgyny.
  • Beauty wise, contrast with bold lips and nails; berry, coral and pink are on-trend. Keep the hair simple in an up-do with a centre-part - try a chignon or topknot.
