It can be tricky to style a tuxedo jacket without looking like a waiter or groom. But when done right, tuxedo jackets can be a super chic and modern fashion statement! Here are some ideas on how to style a tuxedo jacket casually.
HOW TO STYLE A TUXEDO JACKET CASUALLY
Avoid Being Matchy Matchy
It can be very chic wearing an entire tuxedo set, but you may look like you’re about to attend your own wedding or a red carpet event. For a more casual chic look, switch up the color or material of the bottoms.
Continuing the point above, opt for denim jeans for the bottoms. A nice pair of skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans help add a ‘street’ factor into the outfit. Jeans that are a little distressed are fun and funky too!
Play With Accessories
When an outfit consists of classic or basic pieces, the easiest way to make the outfit more interesting is to add fun accessories. This Sasha Bag by X Nihilo is a new favorite of mine. I love the structure of the bag and the versatility of it. You can pair it with a minimalistic look, casual look or even feminine look. It comes with a shoulder strap, but is cutest (I reckon!) when hand held.

I also love these round reflective glasses from Forever21. They add a slightly retro and funky vibe to the outfit. And, of course, these YSL Opium Logo Pump is another current obsession of mine.
Add a Feminine Touch
For me, I chose to wear a satin corset inside my Tuxedo. The satin of the corset matches with my tuxedo jacket, but the boyfriend jeans help tone down the entire look. This adds a touch of sexy without being overexposed. For a different kind of feminine look, try wearing a lace bodysuit or a lace blouse underneath the tuxedo jacket.
