Tuxedo jeans and pants have been haute for a while. Heading into Summer, I can assure you the trend remains at a fever pitch. Playing personal stylist to a client this week, I spotted no fewer than five women in tuxedo pants in a single set of fitting rooms. A lot, right? Every one of them were wearing black tuxedo pants with a white stripe. Classic, but it made me think a) I feel bad they looked like every one else and b) boring.
This weekend Foxes, break the rules and make the tuxedo trend your own by adding some color and Summer style. Done right, the tuxedo stripe down a leg is a great way to lengthen your silhouette and can ground a bold color or pattern or add some sporty flair to shorts. Start with your favorite pair and add in some whimsical spins on classic black tie pieces. You know, put on a bow on it.
