Tuxedos for Women
My usual posts have been on hiatus here for a few weeks, so this post was started a little bit before New Year’s Eve, where I intended to show this tuxedo style for an option for not only a wedding, but perhaps a New Year’s Eve event or wedding or for anyone wanting a polished femininely tailored tuxedo like this one. Since then, several awards ceremonies have happened and some of the best looks featured women walking the red carpet in suits, so the timing of this post is delayed, but perhaps even more relevant for those who may have been inspired by those looks.
With a site named Dress for the Wedding, and an inherent love of the styles of so many wedding-ready dresses, I am realizing that I overwhelmingly tend to focus a little too much on dresses! However, in “real life” the majority of my outfits include pants on most days – so why not include more of them for wedding guest looks? Fortunately, I think there are starting to be many more beautiful options for pants, wedding jumpsuits, suits and tuxedos for feminine forms, and I can’t wait to feature more of them here. Suits and pantsuits are a great option whether you’re the one getting married, you’re a groomsmaid, or you are a guest in search of a formal style that doesn’t mean a floor-length gown, and the tuxedo look is the most formal of these styles.
Where to Find Women’s Tuxes
While many retailers like Ann Taylor, J.Crew, and Nordstrom offer beautiful suits for women, it can be harder to find a special occasion suit that has a fabric and tailored style that befits the a formal wedding aisle and is elevated beyond the usual workplace suit. If you’re searching for more tuxedo styles with feminine tailoring, please also check out Little Black Tux and Her Tuxedo who specifically tailor their lines for women. Custom tailoring is the best way to ensure a perfect fit and style, and having a custom suit made for your wedding is a beautiful way to make the occasion and look special. Also be sure to check out the offerings on Etsy, like VigilanteLabs who specialize in women’s wedding suits and tuxedos.
If you’re seeking more ideas, here are a few more looks you might like, and I’ll try to be better about showcasing more women’s suits and jumpsuits for weddings!
