I can officially say that, as of this moment, my white tuxedo jacket is my most favorite item in my closet. By now you have probably seen stars such as Olivia Palermo, Gwenyth Paltrow and the Olsen’s in theirs, but have you tried one on?
This has to be one of the most flattering Holiday looks out there. Check out Ms. Alicia Keys sporting a Stella McCartney blazer, running around $1,800, along with a gorgeous gold sequin top and black tuxedo pants! Bam! Instant, easy glam and effortless cool.
I found pieces almost identical to Alicia’s and, yes, they have already been worn and re-worn to several Holiday get-togethers!
H&M has an amazing white and black tuxedo blazer for around $60…but I also found this one from Urban Outfitters which is a little more of an investment but trust me, it will pay off!!
And take a look at this gold top from ASOS. It’s only $40 and almost indistinguishable from the high-end version.
I also found some great black tuxedo pants from H&M that were only $35 or you can try this pair blue pair from New York & Co. for a fun color twist on the classic style for only $59.95!
These pieces are so interchangeable, that the options really are endless. You can add jeans with the gold top for a more casual look–or pair the blazer with a graphic tee, cobalt blue jeans and some ankle boots for a more downtown-vibe.
And the tuxedo jacket is a no-brainer New Year’s Eve option–throw it over any dress or wear it with a lacy bra or cami for a va-va-voom look!
So take a clue form Ms. Keys and knock the Tux right off your man…
