Tux, with a Twist

Top: MM Couture by Miss Me Pleated Top // Pant: Forever 21 Classic Pleated Pant // Shoes: Charles Jourdan Kristen Platform Pump // Clutch: Forever 21 Glitter Clutch, similar here, here and here // Necklace: Kate Spade Mod Squad Necklace, similar here

Okay, so there is no coat nor bow tie, but this is my feminine twist on a tux!  The tuxedo is such a great classic look but I wanted to style it up in a more relaxed and softer way.  I switched out the traditional coat and tie for a statement necklace à la Kate Spade to add instant ‘wow’ impact.  This billowy, pleated chiffon top is gorgeous and is so glamorous when you move and it flutters behind you.  Pair it with slim fit pleated pants from Forever 21 (for a great price!) that skim at the ankle, a perfect length to show off some serious footwear!  These exaggerated loafer heels from Charles Jourdan modernize the look by keeping the styled lines we all love but adding an on-trend couture twist.  To top it all off, add a sparkly clutch for one last pop of glitz!

Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday fun-day!  Did anyone do any shopping at the Versace for H&M collection this past Saturday?  After being trampled by some serious shoppers, I was lucky enough to snag up one of the last tops and skirts and will be snapping some photos this week!

See you soon,

Jennifer
