Adding texture to this trend makes it ultra feminine and very chic. If you’re in the warmer parts of the country opt for lace tuxedo pieces seen at Lanvin. Partying in Delhi or the colder parts of India then invest in heavy woven pieces that Chanel did for their fall 2011 RTW collection.

Don’t just stick to your safe shades of black, deep jewel tones and metallics are equally sassy this season for fall 2011. Coloured tuxedo pieces are a major statement to any evening look. Jason Wu showed beautifully tailored blazers in deep colours that will work with our skin tone. Haider Ackermann, who is a genius in making tailored garments look relaxed had great options for a daring fashionista.

Gloss and Shine

As a country we LOVE all things that glitter, adding a whole lot of sparkle to your tuxedo will make you look super rich this fall. Just like at Balmain and Dolce & Gabbana, it’s all about that major gloss and shine to take this trend into night time. Also doesn’t it just ooze power and sex like only a woman can pull off?
