How to Get the Borrowed-from-Boys Style with Tuxedos

Tuxedo is in vogue and evolved itself as an icon of male elegance. Luckily, fashion doesn’t discriminate as the timeless staple is now embraced by women. Thanks to Yves Saint Laurent, who gave birth to “Le Smoking” suit in 1966, as this masculine ensemble has now become a women’s wardrobe staple. Tuxedo blazers embody the essence of a modern woman that is stylish, independent, and conquers the men-dominated world. Tuxedo jackets and suits are just some of the fashion ensembles that we stole from men, so keep on reading for our guide on how to wear them so you’ll give your style a vamp fashionably.

Dare to wear the borrowed-from-boys look intentionally.

The masculine influence over women’s dressing has reached new extremes as there are some very non-traditional ways for ladies to wear this trend. For starters, a white button-down shirt seems to be pertinent while black trousers or skirt is more traditional. Finish off the look with a traditional bow-tie that can take over the outfit completely. While loafers, oxfords, and brogues have always been regarded as men’s footwear, women never fail to prove that they can rock these staples just as well as the gentlemen. For a head-to-toe borrowed from the boys look, take your tuxedo blazer and pair with masculine brogues to seal the deal.

Balance your masculine blazer with feminine details.

There is nothing wrong with looking like a man, but dressing too literally these days seems a bit contrived. To pull off masculine fashion while still maintaining your feminine allure, team your tuxedo blazer with some flirty accessories, sexy lace, frilly ruffles, chandelier earrings, cute bows and such that will balance out the tailored feel of the suit. Though designer Yves Saint Laurent pioneered this look with his Le Smoking suit back in 1966, today’s offerings range in feminine fabrics, rich colors, sophisticated cuts, and clean silhouette softening a masculine stance. Just think luxurious, sultry, and easy with a strong dose of femininity to balance the masculinity of the tuxedo jacket.

Get a sexy look by showing some skin and attitude.

There’s something so thrilling about putting on a tuxedo as even though it’s masculine, it can make you feel so empowered and sexy. Nothing is sexier in fashion than a woman dressed in a trim tuxedo that highlights her enviable assets. A versatile piece of clothing, tuxedo blazer can be worn with your favorite jeans, leather leggings, sexy skirts, thigh-grazing shorts—the possibilities are truly endless. You may push the androgyny envelope and get a hard edge look. Just make sure you rock it with major attitude and the highest of heels. It’s a look that is both sultry and seductive that’s guaranteed to turn heads.

Incorporate prints into your outfit.

Whether it’s a pair of leopard print sneakers or a pair of athletic striped pants, prints can always do the trick. Le Smoking suits require a bold style, but give it a modern spin with bold prints. Bold prints will give you a feminine yet edgy appeal, but avoid going overboard by pairing it bold colored pieces. Furthermore, nothing is more seductive than a sexy hint of prints in a borrowed-from-boys look.

Indeed, dressing like a guy doesn’t involve a literal translation of a man’s wardrobe, but borrowing the idea that looking good doesn’t have to look feminine yet with a sophisticated glamour.
