Spring ’13 Trend: The Updated Tuxedo Jacket

March 22, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


I’m always game for a good tuxedo jacket. I love that you can pair it with faded jeans, a white tee, stilettos and a killer necklace as well as going with the expected more dressy route. It’s more versatile than one might expect. I personally already own two versions of the tuxedo jacket in the requite black with black lapels, but what you will find for Spring ’13 is a selection of more daring tuxedo jacket options (I adore the sleeveless vest option too). Whether it’s color-blocked, patterned, leather or has  a crazy lapel you really need to invest in a tuxedo jacket…now. Think of it as your new jean jacket and wear it with practically everything (even jeans). You will soon learn it’s indispensable. Here are 10 updated tuxedo jackets we found available right now:
