A tuxedo is a jacket that differs from a suit due to the presence of satin lapels. It is worn mostly by men to black tie events.
Like many trends these days, women are taking over everything, and I mean everything! I like to think that this is in a bid to solve the— “I don’t have enough clothes in my wardrobe therefore I have nothing to wear”– problem.
Many ladies who have been afraid to go for male inspired feminine looks, have now taken solace in the Tuxedo dress/ blazer dress.
The Tux dress as its fondly called is such a cute piece and getting dressed up in one of these will require that you abide by a few style tips that will in no way stop you from expressing your individuality.
Here are a few photos to explain these tips better. Enjoy!
Dress up and look fierce in a simple, well tailored tuxedo dress. Bearing the colour white in mind, go for simple hairstyles like the high bun Bolanle Olukanni has on. That reveals the colour and how it compliments your skin tone be the center of attention.
In a wide range of diverse styles, there is something for all with tuxedo dresses. For Curvy ladies, don’t be afraid to go mini, just pair with thigh-high pop socks in your exact skin tone. This extra should help make you feel more comfortable and confident if you are body conscious.
You are meant to look stunning in your outfit so go for accessories that suit you and will not conflict with the integrity of your tux dress. Like Rihanna, pair your multi-coloured or mixed print tux dress with neutral colour sandals and accessories.
