I love jackets very much! But I hope that the oversize-shoulder-trend won't last because they remind of the 1980s and Alexis in Dallas..!

Erika said...

I so adore Blugirl and Dolce & Gabbana. There's something about tuxedos that is so appealing - especially when created for women. The slinky, yet somewhat boyish silhouette is just fabulous! :)

Leah said...

Tuxedo and a fedora hat plus oxfords... so chic!

Sweety P said...

I so want a tuxedo inspired blazer for the spring!

Christen said...

Such a fantastic trend. I love that this look is inspired by menswear but looks so incredibly powerful and feminine when done the right way!

leeselooks said...

i love that picture of abby lee!

diane kruger wore an outfit like this, and i actually liked it.
i would have to be feeling quite brave to wear a bowtie out though ;)

Anika said...

CC, you're tempting me too much. I'm a sucker for blazers....any and all. The oversized men's style, the cropped, the sharp-shouldered, the poufy, the average.
Bliss. Pure bliss. AS is this post.

Divine, darl.

A fab Sunday read....hope you're having a fantastic weekend :)

Sher said...

Hi CC,

Great tuxedo inspired outfits here, I would love to have a tuxedo jacket or shirt:)

Style Crusader said...

janettaylor said...

Yummy things! :-)

tiltumaria said...

Looove them all! Especially (surprise surprise) balmain and anna sui! I've been looking for the perfect blazer for so long and have yet to find it... Since my budget is quite limited... I guess I'll just have to make one myself!

Kristin said...

I still covet that tuxedo Jen Aniston wore shirtless. So hot!!

LPC said...

There's nothing quite so dignified and appealing as a tux on a woman, IMO.

Rianna Bethany said...

dress tuxedo's are way the best because you get the outline of the collar but the slinky outline of a dress. Lovely stuff!

Mmm, sign me up for a fabulous Balmain tuxedo jacket =) I think Balmain makes the most fabulous jackets ever...if only I had $12,000 to splurge on one!

I love all these tux-like looks. I don't think this menswear inspired look will every go out of vogue.

dapper kid said...

That Balmain look is pure perfection, I am loving the jacket paired with those slouchy pants! Ooh and the Chanel look is beautiful. The Zac Posen is so pretty! Wow at the Unconditional dress, and I love the Stella cropped jacket. And the Louboutins are gorgeous. Hope you're having a beautiful weekend dear :)

UnoCosa said...

WendyB said...

I've always liked a tux look -- especially with no shirt under the jacket and a big necklace!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Ooh how fun! I just bought a really cool Tuxedo jacket a few weeks ago for fall. I liked seeing these pics and getting ideas on how to wear mine in different ways. :)

Brigadeiro said...

Ah! You pick such gorgeous 'topics'! LOVE LOVE LOVE tuxedo jackets, and was just explaining to hubby last night the difference between a suit jacket and a tux...LOVE these! :)

I am a major lover of the tuxedo look! Masculine and feminine looks!

thesydneygirl said...

Couture Cookie said...

This is a cool look for those who can pull it off. My best friend actually went to prom wearing a tux... people thought she was nuts back then, but clearly she was just ahead of her time!

WISEREDLIPS said...

HiFashion said...

'm loving tight fitted blazers right now. They're perfect for day and night. I love those dresses you've picked as well.

theswellelife.com said...

Love the tuxedo jacket! I tried on a jacket at Reiss recently that was longer in the front, with diagonal zips on the front and it was so cool, but the fabric was a bit too slippery cheap for me and I passed. Nothing ruins a great piece like cheap fabric!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I love the D&G!

I hope you had a happy weekend CC!

Amelia said...

Hi CC!
How are you doing this monday?

I wish I could say that I don´t love Balmain but... the brand has unfortunately some amazing pieces without mentioning the $$$$ price tags.

The black tuxedo jacket is such a beautie-cutie ;)

Have a beautiful day!!!!
