Hi there, ESB,
I am traveling to New Orleans for a funky NYE wedding at this lovely industrial space full of decadence and decay, and I got it in my head that it might be fun to wear a lady tuxedo.
I've seen one only in pictures: a cigarette pant with a cropped jacket that somehow manages to contain more than a few ounces of femininity. Tell me, 1. Does such a thing exist outside of Vogue?, and 2. Am I insane to pursue this nonsense?
Thank you, thank you!
Clearly you were not around for #PANTSWEEK. I am very pro lady tuxedo. Very.
Rag & Bone is making my favorite tux jackets for ladies right now.
(Pale pink, $535 at American Rag)
(Metallic brocade, $895 at Shopbop)
(Metallic shawl-collar, $595 at Neiman Marcus)
But you can find em a lot cheaper at Zara or even Banana Republic.
