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.
