Tuxedo deluxe

So you're going out and you plan on wearing your cutest new strapless dress. But wait, it's December and you remember it's freezing ass outside (at least where I live it is...)  So how do you cover up a bit and attempt to stay warm-ish while still looking amazing?   
Pashminas?- boring.  Bolero style shrug?- old news. 
  Tux jackets are the perfect way to coverup while adding a bit of structure and style. Last winter I was really loving my cropped tux jacket, but this season I'm all about a regular length tuxedo jacket. The masculine silhouette of the jacket offsets the shortness of a dress while adding an extra kick of style. Lurve it.



{Is it really necessary to do 3 hours of pilates and yoga everyday to have legs like these?}
While cruising through my People Style Watch magazine I notice this American Eagle Tuxedo blazer. (American Eagle? yeah, who knew they'd carry something like this.)  So I grabbed this while shopping this week. It's the perfect length, has the right amount of structure and of course has a shiny lapel to add a pop of added glam. 

In the beginning of January I'll most definitely be rocking a tux jacket when we go out in Vegas.
What do you think about mixing a men's look with something flirty and fun like a short dress?

I definitely dig the tux jacket! It's fashionable and functional which is basically what my style is based around.

I bought a sleeveless dress for the holidays yesterday and just this morning I was thinking, "What am I going to wear with it if I get cold?" You gave me the perfect idea, thank you!

And HOLY LEGS on Gwyneth!

I love, love this look!! I also have a cropped one from last year. Saw this AE one last weekend when I was shopping there. Picked it up but the fitting room line was too long. I have a coupon for $10 off starting 12/26. I'll have to pick one up..
