Gone are the times when tuxedo was marked just as the menswear. With leading ladies like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian walking the red carpet clad in tuxedos, this classic ensemble has turned out to be the new source of women’s power dressing. While most women feel like flaunting their glitzy satin gown on special occasions, this particular can’t be every bird’s vibe. One can don tux on several events such as wedding parties, award ceremonies, college functions, or even at your own graduation party. However, getting the fundamentals right is the key.
Customise your piece
Let your outfit do the talking when it comes to showing off your curves. If you’re wondering how the answer lies with your tailor. Invest some time and money going to the market and buying apt fabric and get it stitched according to your size and shape. Do not borrow pieces from your friends or relatives. You might end up with dull fabric, long sleeves and an outfit that lacks feminine touch. Unlike men tuxedos, the hips and the waistline of your blazer need to be fitted to give that hourglass figure appearance.
Play with blouses
White shirts are an evergreen partner of blazers, but giving the look a sexy twist won’t harm either. Pair the buttoned blazer with crop tops to look absolutely debonair. You can go with caged, twist front, peplum, chainmail, leather, cut out, lace, keyhole, plunging tie-up, zip-up, turtle neck or multi-strap crop top. And, if you feel like ditching the blouses and bras underneath just like Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, and Demi Lovato and be the splendid boss lady, go for it. After all, there’s no fun without going out of the blue.
Modify the bottoms
Traditionally a nice fitted pant is considered an apt partner of the blazer, but women enjoy the liberty of breaking the monotony. Pick skinny trousers to look more formal and feminine. Or, rock in a crop pant as these are garnering popularity quickly for making the overall appear edgy and semi-formal. Speaking of semi-formal get-up, denim and tuxedos have been friends for ages. Be it a day look or a semi-formal office party, tux and dark denim works like no other outfit.
Last but never least, skirts. Tuxedos and skirts are definitely a true classic pair. A well fitted knee-length pencil skirt or a bodycon short skirt can bring out the formal look with utter style.
For those who think tuxedos are more masculine apparel, you might want to try tuxedo dresses. Celebrities like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are often seen dazzling in it at several public appearances. A long blazer, neat dress with buttons or even a buttoned-up jacket can be counted as a tux dress. And you won’t even have to worry about the type of occasions you are attending in it. Why because it is so versatile. For a formal day look to pull it off with minimal make-up and neat bun whereas, for night parties go extra. Bold lipstick and glitzy earrings will surely make you stand out.
