Trending: Tuxedo Blazer

This winter season, menswear is making the way into every fashionistas closet in the form of a tuxedo blazer. This particular trend is on my must-have list and it can be done in a multitude of ways. Here is my breakdown of how to wear, where to buy and how to mix it up. 

I personally am fond of the more traditional white tuxedo blazer with a black contrast lapel. Here are a few that have caught my eye: 

This blazer by Tibi is especially chic because of the leather detailing. It takes it up a notch and gives a nod to the leather trend as well! 
Tuxedo Jacket with Leather Trim Lapel by Tibi $495 
This blazer at Express is a more cost conscious version without losing the quality of the fabric that you want. P.S.: it's an additional 20% off right now. 

Express Crepe Satin Contrast Lapel Jacket $69.99  
DO wear your tuxedo blazer over a dress with tights and booties for a dinner date! 
ASOS Petite Exclusive Tuxedo Blazer $99.99
Feel free to mix it up a bit and wear the tuxedo blazer in different fabrics such as this velvet version by Trina Turk. (She is one of my all time favorite designers and all of her pieces that I own have lasted me YEARS!) I also love how she paired it with a ruffled blouse and shorts! TrĂ©s chic! 
Trina Turk Gaston Blazer $298.80
Another huge color for this season is cobalt blue and it has been spotted on a number of different tuxedo blazers as well! DO wear it with tuxedo pants as an unexpected alternative for a dress. 
McQ Alexander McQueen Royal Blue Blazer $625
Go ahead and take the plunge with a sassy tuxedo blazer this winter!
