The tailored tuxedo brings precision to party wear

The tailored tuxedo brings precision to party wear

Elevate your evening look with a tailored two piece by Alexander McQueen, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace

We’ve always erred towards classic dress codes, but, for A/W 2020, our failsafe silhouettes have had an experimental uplift. The catwalks saw something of a tux redux, with brands offering new takes on the eveningwear essential.

At Prada, an oversized blazer came festooned with flapper girl fringing, acting as an androgynous upgrade on Jazz Age embellishment, while at Dolce & Gabbana, a cropped tuxedo took on a softer silhouette, with a bow detail that fluidly draped across the body. Versace spliced and diced the style, piercing cut-outs with punky metal hoops, while Alexander McQueen dabbled in deconstruction, with a tuxedo resembling a doubled-up jacket.

For those that prefer androgony over ostentation and fine form over frou, the tuxedo offers a precise take on party wear - whether your attending an event in IRL or toasting the end of 2020 via Zoom. For your male counterparts, we also suggest you direct them to our guide on shopping for a sensational smart jacket. You’ll be sure to take A/W 2020’s timeless dressing with a twist into 2021. §
