Evening gowns are no longer the only fashion trend at red carpet events. Women’s tuxedos are quickly becoming a very popular choice and women’s tailoring seems to be taking the spotlight. Let’s take a closer look at this trend and how you can wear your tuxedo just right.
There are big events throughout every woman’s life where the urge to wear a cocktail dress or ball gown is tempting, but over the past 20 years, the popularity of the women’s tuxedo has gone from strength to strength; beginning as a shock-factor statement piece for high-profile individuals, the feminine take on the classic formal outfit has evolved into a more acceptable option for formal events and has thrown off the gender-bound restrictions of previous generations.
Tuxedos with a tailored fit can be particularly flattering but there are no specific rules about styles or colors to be followed. Fashion and womenswear are both very flexible and a women’s tuxedo is the perfect addition to any well stocked wardrobe.
Women’s tuxedos are still making a bold statement in 2016. They’re edgy, fashion-forward pieces that tend to generate hype whenever they are worn by a famous face or seen at a high profile event. For the last couple of years, women’s tuxedos have been commonplace on fashion runways. Inspired by the designer brands, high street stores are also stocking and selling tuxedo jackets for women among their formal wear collections.
