Trend of the Moment: Menswear

Trend of the Moment

"Le Smoking" Jacket is back. This season the love for the tuxedo has returned. There is nothing better to wear for an evening event than the elegant tuxedo and this fall, designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana remind us of the importance of having a tux in our wardrobe.

The tuxedo has been reformed and adjusted over the years to become a look that empowers, glamorizes, and lends the same confidence it gives men to women. It brings a level of sophistication to any woman, traditionally only available to men. The difference between this season's tuxedo trend and the past ones is that, even though black and white are the leading colors: fabrics like lace and satin are taking the lead on this season's runways. Accessorize your tuxedo look with pieces like hats, sparkling jackets and bow ties for the perfect addition to your outfit.

Here are some pieces for you to get into this fall trend:

J. Crew has some amazing blazers (like this Hacking Jacket above) in a variety of colors.

Trina Turk "Francoise Blouse"


MOSCHINO C&C "Midnight Tuxedo-Style Pants"


TopShop "Venus Glitter Lace Up Brogues"

MUST-HAVE for the season: Dior Vernis Nail Polish in Tuxedo
