Fall in Love with… Tuxedo Jackets

Kevington Blazer by The Row
 

Designers rolled out their best le smoking jackets for the spring. Take advantage of this femme fatale trend by sporting a tuxedo jacket for both casual and formal outings. Like a classic blazer, the tux is versatile and really easy to wear.

Longer and more relaxed styles are ideal for daytime when paired with a long tunic and skinny jeans. For more elegant events, opt for a tailored tux with a sharper fit.

The great thing about tuxedo jackets is you can pair them with matching trousers for a full-blown tux effect, or you can mix it up by wearing them with contrasting separates. In some cases, it’s even fun to layer a tuxedo jacket over a lightweight (or cocktail) dress depending on the colors and fabrics you are working with.

If you decide to give the tux trend a spin, I suggest balancing the masculinity of the jacket with ultra feminine touches such as a red lip, pink nails or a pair of sparkly heels.

Here are some links to a few tuxedo jackets I am currently eyeing…
BCBG Novelty Tuxedo Jacket
Haute Hippie Oversized Tuxedo Jacket
ADAM Cropped Tuxedo Jacket
Rag & Bone Wool & Cotton-Blend Tuxedo Jacket
Top Shop Black Satin Collar Tux Jacket

Have you tried this trend before? If so, share the links to your favorite tuxedo jackets in the comments below or tell me which of my selections (above) you like best.

P.S. I just designed a tuxedo jacket for my Paper Crown holiday collection–can’t wait for everyone to see it!

    I love the detail in the back of BCBGs novelty tuxedo jacket. Well spotted!! Do you know of one in red that is available and more of a daytime jacket?

  • Kimberly

    It’s a very beautiful color!

    I love blazers although I haven’t one (yet) .

    I like the Oversized Tuxedo Jacket of Haute Hippie. I love the visuel effect in the front and “”j’adolre le blanc”” = means I love white color


  • Jennifer Houlahan

    ohh I love seeing tuxedo jackets matched with medium dark skinny jeans – so chic :)

    Lauren,

    the camel blazer you designed for the fall 2011 collection of Paper Crown is fabulous! My favorite tuxedo blazer right now is this black BCBGeneration blazer with a colorful lining! =]

  • Kara Endres

    I love the look of tuxedo jackets, but always felt like they were too masculine on me. I’m excited to see some that are feminine and versatile.

  • Mariella

    I had never tried one, I love the contrast of the masculine and feminine touches. So this season I’ll get mine!

  • Jennifer Sellen

    I would love to be able to view Paper Crow… please could someone help!!

  • Denize Menezes

    i’m in love with this tuxedo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lauren, I’m your biggest fan in Brazil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Susan Westrell

    I love these as much as blazers. Still awaiting the Lost&Found cleanout day at school – the guy’s uniform includes an AWESOME navy blazer, and there are like five in there. Obviously, I’m taking one. x) They’re like $70 normally, so I can’t believe people lose them. Might try playing around with tuxedo stuff later.

  • Nicolette Barrera-Garcia

    LOVE IT :D

  • stephanie petalas

    I have a Pink blazer like the one in the photo above but i find it quite hard to put it together with an outfit because of the colour! Any good tips?

  • diana seitanidou

    i have a grey one and i love it !!

  • Susannah Williams

    I have a couple Tuxedo Jackets, i absolutly adore them. Ecspecially for classier occasions such as interviews or nicer parties. They are fun but sophistaced, just like me

  • Susan Westrell

    @Stephanie: Try something white or black and fairly simple? I imagine that’d look best with it. Especially something black. Grey could look good too.

  • stephanie petalas

    Thanks Sue! I will be trying it on with those colours to see how it looks ! :)

  • Louna Charaf

    Wow I love the Kevington blazer, but €1,677.93 it’s too much for me

  • Delfina Guzman

    loving the tuxedo jacket, specially blazers, i have a few, they can dress up any outfit.. there absolutely perfect !

  • An Tran

    I love it! I have a black one but I am the hunt for a white one with black satin on the lapels and black buttons! Does anyone know where I can get one?

  • Grace O Connor

    really need to get myself a nice one =] they look brilliant with everything!

  • Delfina Guzman

  • Joy Li

    The Kevington Blazer is gorgeous. :) I definitely want a blazer, but I think it might look a little too old on me. Pink or blush might look a little younger. I don’t know. Haha, still lovin’ the style though!

    Love this look, I need a blazer like this, I’m loving pastels. <3

  • CourtureFashion16

    I LOVE THE BLAZER but it would be cutier if it was like a bit shorter
