Holiday Series: Urban Tux

Last post I did a very glamorous black tie version of a tuxedo, so today I wanted to do an entirely different take on it.  This look is more casual, a lot more edgy, and totally of-the-moment.  I LOVE teaming a tuxedo jacket with leather pants/leggings because the sheen from the leather really compliments the sheen on the jacket’s satin lapel.  Instead of a classic pump, like I would usually reach for, I wanted to make this look not feel so “dressed up” so I opted for a pair of unique burgundy booties.  What I really love about these booties is that they have a wedge heel that isn’t super high which makes them really comfortable. Having a pair of comfortable booties that allow you to move freely is so amazing when you have to do a lot of walking, standing or dancing the night away!  I particularly like these because they can be dressed up or down very easily, making them really versatile.  I also wanted this look to feel fun and fresh so I decided to add a leopard print clutch into the mix.

    Love the fun and casual take on the tux blazer. I think you and I are channeling each other lately because I’ll be donning a tux jacket for my next post. It’s also what I wore to the first Xmas party of the year in November. ; )
