The tuxedo dress is a modern take on a classic piece. An androgynous style, the tuxedo dress tries to have its original essence while still catering to the feminine details. Every girl needs a jacket! But having a jacket you can wear as a dress is absolutely amazing!
A tuxedo dress is an absolute chic alternative to a masculine-style tux or a flirty cocktail dress. This equal opportunity sartorial statement has been making the rounds since 1966 when Yves Saint Laurent designed the first haute couture tux suit, ‘Le Smoking‘.
Although not as versatile as you would like, the tux dress is the perfect mix between formal and fun and it’s relatively an easy outfit to pull off. Wanna try it yourself? The key is to make sure the length is just right.
Let your tux hit at the mid thigh where it’s long enough to work as a dress but doesn’t swamp your figure. If you’ve got a longer style or a knee-length sleeveless vest you’re wanting to make work, try a belt at your natural waist to define your figure and bring the silhouette up a notch.
