The tuxedo jacket is a masculine piece that women are rocking with a dose of feminine flare and we love how fashion forward and chic this look is. The tuxedo jacket differs from a blazer in that is it more formal, cut differently and typically has a satin lapel or collar, whereas blazers are less formal and usually have a less defined lapel made out of the same fabric as the rest of the jacket. Fashion designers like Chanel, Emilio Pucci, Dolce and Gabanna, Givenchy and Jason Wu have all shown fantastic ladies tuxedo jackets on the runway making this typically masculine piece look very sophisticated, feminine and sexy.

There are many different way to wear a tuxedo jacket; our favorite is to go for a bold and classic white and black look. For example you can pair black fitted skinny trousers with a crisp and well cut white tuxedo jacket.  This white and black look is super sophisticated and can be worn to a formal office function or a fancy date night.  Though this trend is typically associated with formal affairs it is possible to wear a tuxedo jacket casually. The key is to mix up the color of the jacket, instead of the traditional black or white, look for a peach tuxedo jacket and pair it with a grey maxi dress. The peach and grey color combo is super chic, light and bright, making the tuxedo jacket look less formal.
