The Tuxedo

Traditionally, the tux has been a fashion piece often worn by men.  However, the tuxedo has become more and more popular among women.  I love the tuxedo and years ago, I decided to add one to my wardrobe.  I purchased this tux in 2007 to speak to a national organization about community empowerment.  I chose a tux instead of an evening gown because I just didn’t want to look like everyone else.  I was successful in bringing my own style to the stage, but I’m not alone.  Nearly every designer has created a tuxedo for his or her line of clothing.  This tuxedo was purchased at Ann Taylor Loft for a fraction of the designer cost.  I actually purchased it on sale, which made the deal even sweeter.


If you’re looking for something different to add to your wardrobe, try a tux for that next formal event.  No need to wear a tuxedo shirt.  A nice, crisp, white button down shirt or a white silk shirt will do the job.  You can wear a french cuff shirt or a barrel cuff.  I personally love french cuff shirts.  Instead of the traditional  black cuff link that is worn with tuxedo shirts, I chose a silver cuff link to accent the silver and crystal stones in the ring I am wearing.
