Fancy wearing black tie to a New Year's Eve party tonight? A girl donning a dinner jacket is no longer an outre look but you do nonetheless need to have a certain amount of confidence to carry it off. Like Emma Watson a couple of years back in Saint Laurent. The actress accessorised the fashion house's contrast lapel blazer and skinny tuxedo pants with a Reece Hudson Bondage minaudiere and black, sling-back courts and she looked absolutely stunning.
So if you also want to wear that look, don't rummage around in your boyfriend's wardrobe for his old dinner jacket; get a proper female tuxedo from somewhere like Dessy.
Designed by the fabulous After Six team, the Marlowe women's tuxedo is cut to flatter the female form, something you just won't achieve with a man's dinner jacket. It has a sleek satin peak lapel, single satin covered button fastening, two satin trimmed welt pockets and a welt breast pocket. Its beautiful tailoring is enhanced by the material - a fine stretch wool from one of the oldest mills in Italy, Lanificio Di Tollegno (est. 1862), 96% wool, 4% Lycra.
The jacket is hugely versatile, too. You can team it with the Marlow Women's Tuxedo trousers, a classic, slim fit with a satin stripe down the outside of each leg, side slash pockets and an elegant satin waist band. The trousers sit comfortably just below the waist for the most flattering of looks and have a 32 inch inseam to allow for alterations.
Or you can pair the jacket with jeans for a truly funky look:
Like Ms Watson, I'd accessorise the look with a minaudiere, like this one from Dessy in the prettiest of pale pinks:
Whichever look you choose, you'll look sassy and chic in your female tuxedo so order one now and enjoy standing out from the crowd.
