Tuxedos Ain't Just For The Gents

 

Janelle Monae Tip Toeing in Style

 

Let's face it, dresses aren't always everyone's thang.  I know several ladies that would rather be in pants at any time of the day.  When it comes to a formal occasion, it can be challenging for these gals to find something stylish that still feels like "them".  In comes the tuxedo....  A few years ago, this was my sister's dilemma.  My twin wore a tuxedo to my wedding and looked totally fabulous.

Since then it has become such a fabulous trend among celebrities!  Whether it's a Met Gala or a Saturday night out, Female Tuxedos are all the rage these days.  Check out some of these amazing looks from some seriously stylish stars.

I love how chic a tuxedo can look when tailored correctly.  Also, by added some blingy accessories it can still feel feminine and flirty.  I trick to pulling this look off is SELF CONFIDENCE.  Below are two different ways to style a tuxedo.  I love this idea for a bridesmaid, a party guest or even a daring bride.  

Collar, Tuxedo, Chiffon Tie, Gold Capped Shoes, Striped Heels

 

Also, I must give credit where credit is due.  As I was writing this post I was inspired by something other than celebrities and my amazing sister.  I was also totally inspired by Lola, my boston terrier puppy who is ALWAYS wearing a tuxedo with class.  Today this pup turns one.  What better birthday present than a blog post about tuxedos!  

 

 

xoxo,

Melanie
