Tuxed Out!

It’s almost a New Year you guys and I don’t know about you, but 2015 went by so quickly. I will be doing a post on planning for 2016 and how to set goals that are achievable. Comment below with some of your new year’s goals and plans.

So, i’ve always wanted to do a menswear inspired look. This look is very popular and I like the look of a powerful woman in a tuxedo. I decided to try out this style but make it a little sexy (shhhh…don’t tell my mom). I purchased this great Gianni Bini tuxedo jacket in February and it’s literally been sitting in my closet ever since. I found a sleeveless version on Dillard’s website that’s very chic and another great one, called the “Cara Jacket” is right on the money and my next purchase…(shhh don’t tell Sam). Now, remember, if you click these links, it will take you straight to these products and their websites. I know a lot of people love the whole tuxedo jackets with no shirt trend, but I am not one of those people…I need the support of a bra and shirt.

I’ve had this striped bustier for about 5 years and never worn it. American Apparel has a reasonably priced one that has underwire (the girls that need the extra support can shout now). I love underwire…even in my bathing suits. Their striped cotton spandex underwire bustier is really cute and on sale for $21.

My pants were originally wide leg pants but I took them to a tailor to get the legs slimmed down. H&M has a great pair of tuxedo pants with the satin piping on the sides and the slimmed legs. Check all these sites out and recreate this look.

These sexy Jessica Simpson Claudette D’orsay heels are simply stunning and go well with everything–I have them in three different colors. Make sure you check all these sites out and recreate this look. Also, feel free to email me some pics of you in this great look and I will repost.

Now, let me know what you think about this look, how you would have worn it differently or any suggestions that you have (comment below).
