Party Outfits: the tuxedo, an alternative to the LBD…

An alternative to the little black dress, the tuxedo is the perfect basic for avoiding a fashion faux pas and being elegant and chic in any situation.An alternative to the little black dress, the suit is the perfect basic for avoiding fashion faux pas and being elegant and chic in any situation. Whether literally translated or reinvented, you never get fed up with it especially as designers seize the opportunity to deliver new versions. So, during the build-up to end-of-year parties, why not opt for a tuxedo?! Here is a selection…an uncluttered, graphic version. Worn over a minimalist top, a jacket lined with satin, without buttons and a sharp cut. Simplicity reigns equally at Haider Ackermann, in a long style. Jean-Paul Gaultier loves to revisit classics, delivering on the runway a slightly 80s version of a satin double-breasted jacket with large pockets embroidered in jet-black, contrasting with the opacity of crepe trousers. Roberto Cavalli opts for a smoking jacket that highlights the silhouette with a gilet that curves the bust whilst the back is in satin and printed with patterns. Black and white on a short, square-shouldered jacket from Roland Mouret. At Versace, studded leather thigh-high boots and Spencer jacket lapels with flashes of metallic galvanise this ensemble. Diametrically opposed Mary Katrantzou goes for size in volume and in length and plays with prints tone on tone. Another variation is the smoking jumpsuit, very chic from Hermès and like a second skin from Alexandre Vauthier. Sexy with a top hanging as you dare, with rhinestones, sequins and an open vest over a bra. Cuts reach new levels of modernity, and why not try the sobriety of female tailcoats with the lining discretely embroidered in sequins. Music free of right/Bandit & Nikit 2012.
