Inspiration: Tuxedos

Menswear is a must-have for Fall 2006, but in particular, I've been noticing a lot of tuxedo-inspired styles cropping up lately. Unlike other menswear, delicately detailed tuxedo pieces—including satin-trimmed pants, cummerbunds, and pleated shirts—translate flawlessly into women's fashions. Is it any surprise that tuxedos seem to be inspiring designs of everything from suits to belts to dresses? Here's a look at some of my favorite tux-influenced pieces.

Laundry by Shelli Segal Tuxedo Jacket and Pants, $345 and $225, available here.

Development Pleated Silk Dress, $365, available here.

Cynthia Steffe Stretch Cotton Top, $152, available here.

To see the rest,

See By Chloe Tuxedo Jacket and Cropped Skinny Pants, $615 and $325, available here.

Elegantly Waisted Cummerbund Belt, $198, available here.

Bebe Lace Trim Tuxedo Shirt, $79, available here.

Well, I don't usually like stuff like this dress, it's a bit ornate for me, so I'm surprised that it appeals to me! I like simple, unfussy styles. Not a lot of bows or ruffles. Thanks, though, I can't wait to see what people come up with!
