Jason Wu Tuxedo Jacket; Fall 2011

Fashion, Style

I love mixing menswear shapes with girly or sexy touches in an outfit.  This tuxedo jacket from Jason Wu’s fall RTW collection is amazing and very versitile.  Here’s the look on the runway:

Although I love this look, I like adding more feminine flair when I wear a blazer or a tuxedo jacket.  Pairing it with a corset is a sexy look.  It’s less androgynous and is a great way to look feminine, sexy and powerful all at the same time.

Another way you could wear this jacket is with a dress.  A lot of celebrities have been pairing gowns with blazers, but my personal favorite has been Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta:

Pairing a gown with a tuxedo jacket wouldn’t really work, unless the gown was very simple.  The idea behind this look, at least for me, is pairing a dress with a contrasting jacket…so if your dress is fancy, wear a casual jacket…if your dress is more casual, wear a fancier jacket.  Here’s the tuxedo jacket (fancy) paired with a more casual dress:
