Why I Love This Look...
Men have it easy. When it comes to dressing for formal occasions, black tie means black tie! The tuxedo look gives a woman the equivalent so she doesn't have to spring for a gown she may only wear once. Tip: If you don't know the dress code for a party or date, consider wearing a smoking jacket with jeans and pointy-toe pumps. It looks cool and polished without trying too hard.
How to Pull It Off...
1. Stay away from all the classic accessories, such as a cummerbund or bow tie- they look way too cliche and costumey on a woman.
2. A tuxedo jacket can be chic worn over a silk camisole, a white T-shirt, or even bare skin as long as you don't reveal too much cleavage.
3. Wear feminine, sexy heels or glamorous earrings to offset the masculine overtones.
