Tuxedo-inspired womenswear has been a major trend this year. This season’s looks give such great homage to YSL’s forever sexy 1960s Le Smoking image. Plus size brands have been offering both conventional and unconventional interpretations to the classic tuxedo look… hello, prints and texture! The wardrobe staple can simply spice up a work outfit or even work as an evening gown alternative. The ensembles look great paired with everything from a printed collar blouse to a casual v-neck tee.
I purchased some amazing pieces from JC Penney (whose plus size department I am loving) recently and decided to try the short version of the trend while in L.A.
From cropped to a longer cut, here are tuxedo-inspired looks that will fit any woman’s style and budget. Tip: One stop at your local tailor and voila! Your perfect-fitting tuxedo pants can become the perfect pair of summer tuxedo shorts.
