Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Trend: Tuxedo Jackets
In my opinion, a tuxedo-inspired jacket is always fashionable, but this Spring and Summer they are particularly on trend. (Above: Barbara Bui; Haider Ackermann; Christian Dior; Lanvin.) I like this trend because you can dress a tuxedo jacket up for the evening over a mini dress or down during the day with a t-shirt and jeans. Not to mention the fact that a nice structured blazer can camouflage a number of problem areas (arms, waist, etc.) Hopefully, you already have a tuxedo blazer in your closet, but in case you don't, below are some new fresh options to consider: BB Dakota "Zane" blazer for $98 on www.lulus.com; BCBGMAXAZRIA tuxedo blazer for $228 on www.piperlime.com; BCBGMAXAZRIA "Guy"striped tuxedo blazer for $248 on www.bloomingdales.com; Greylin "Beatriz" tuxedo jacket for $128 on www.piperlime.com; Jessica Simpson "Dalton" chambray jacket for $79 on www.nordstrom.com; Spiked tuxedo blazer for $32.80 on www.forever21.com; rag & bone tuxedo jacket for $194 on www.nordstrom.com; Rachel Roy tuxedo jacket for $448 on www.bloomingdales.com; MM Couture tuxedo blazer for $99 on www.macys.com; GUESS tuxedo blazer for $138 on www.macys.com; Cropped tuxedo jacket for $128 on www.victoriassecret.com; Tuxedo style blazer for $34.80 on www.forever21.com.
