From Androgynous Dinner Suits to Bow Tie Jewelry

 - Apr 23, 2012
In its most authentic form, the tuxedo was once the quintessential formal menswear choice, but despite this authenticity, these bold tuxedo takes have reworked the design in recent years, assuming androgynous cuts and disheveled elegance. The combination of dress pant, blazer and bow tie has been seen on innumerable runways, always exuding high levels of confidence and style.

The tuxedo is now as much a female staple as it is male, frequently worn by celebrities and women in positions of power. The spread of androgynous dinner suits has accommodated this shift, allowing harbingers to sport what is usually perceived as a manly look. Tuxedo-themed jewelry lines have also become commonplace, attaching hanging gold chains to faux neck pieces. These twists have brought about an eclectic mix of dapper apparel, effectively reworking a historical look.
