Today's Everyday Fashion: Tuxedo Blazer


I saved this photo because of her shoes! I love them, and I'm on the look out for unique ways to style my off-white python t-straps. Turns out that those shoes were not so hot with this outfit, so I wound up with this Nicholas Kirkwood inspired pair instead. I have a thing for tuxedo blazers (see how else I wore mine here and here) and I like the idea of wearing it with red corduroys for a bit of a early-holiday feel. Would you wear a tuxedo blazer?

Inspiration photo: FabSugar (Twitter pic)
Blazer: c/o Express, $55 (old)
Pants: Gap, $20 (similar, similar, similar)
Shirt: Banana Republic, $35
Shoes: Colin Stuart c/o MJR Sales, $25
Necklace: My Stella & Dot website, $198
Ring: My Stella & Dot website $39 and $69
Bracelets: My Stella & Dot website $32 and $39 and $79

  2. Hi J! I love your look! The red pants are a good surprise in the outfit! I have seen this amazing snake skin pair of shoes, but I'm not sure if I should buy it since it has round toes! Are they still in?

  3. I would definitely wear this whole look!  I have been stalking the Rock & Republic cobalt & black tuxedo blazer at Kohl's.  Waiting for it to go on super sale!  That will definitely be my next purchase.  Heather

  14. Thanks Gizelle! Round toes are definitely still in, especially ones with a smaller platform. Pointy toe is also in style though! :-)

  15. I love tuxedo blazers. I don't have one, but if I did, I'd de invest in a classic black/white combo. But that cobalt/black is pretty too.

  22. Love your outfit!  Your inspiration photo is Rebecca Minkoff - one of my favorite bag designers!

  23. I like your outfit with the statement necklace.  Personally, I am not a big fan of tuxedo blazers - I am not sure I know how to make it more work appropriate and not too holiday looking.

  25. I just love your Gold & Zebra Print Enamel Kalahari Bangle Bracelet, (i.e., the third Stella & Dot bracelet listed, Above)!!    In the online video, Blythe Harris~~Stella & Dot's Chief Creative Officer~~says, "I LOVE our (Fall 2012 Line) Kalahari Bangle because black-and-white is just SUCH a beautiful, strong statement:  I would wear this with a black-and-white print, i.e., I think this would be SO chic!!"   

    Although I know you've worn your black-and-white Kalahari Bangle before, it not only looks  p.a.r.t.i.c.u.l.a.r.l.y.  nice with your Dalmatian-print dress~~(in your 9/17/12 post)~~which you wore while sightseeing in NYC;  but your Kalahari Bangle really "stands out" here............ as a gorgeous piece of Jewelry  *A.r.t.*............ i.e., even moreso UP AGAINST "the spare starkness" of your tuxedo blazer;  black shirt;  and orange-red corduroy pants!!    'Just SUPER-chic outfit styling, J.!!

  28. I love this outfit!  I love blazers on other people, but am a little gun-shy about wearing one myself.  I think it's because I'm a child of the 80s - I think "blazer," which leads me to think of shoulder pads and outfits gone horribly wrong! ;-)

  29. I am slowly embracing my cinnamon tuxedo blazer, and one of the ways I have worn it is this way: http://coverupchic.blogspot.ca/2012/09/fall-suiting-cool-colours.html, which I credited a past post of yours.  I really like these black and white options.
