How to Wear the Tuxedo Look

Style Notes by Morgan, Senior Stylist

The tux. Le smoking. We’ve seen variations of it on and off the runway for decades. The tried-and-true alternative to the party frock is showing itself in fresh ways this holiday season. Day or night, casual or dressy, suiting elements are so right now.

A few of my favorite tuxedo-inspired picks and how to wear them:

1. Rag & Bone Tuxedo Dress This frock is a perfect way to dress up downtown. Booties keep it feeling fashion-forward and a little edgy.

2. Victorialand Tuxedo Shirt I love wearing this shirt with velvet leggings and platforms, or as a layering piece—open over a slouchy tank and leggings.

3. Erin Fetherston Tuxedo Jumpsuit Sexy and on point, just add a clutch and classic pumps.

4. Helmut Lang Tuxedo Jacket Great for dressing up or down, this pairs as well with jeans as it does with ankle skinny pants.
