Transitional Styling: Tuxedo Jacket

Fashion Blogger Styling Black Tuxedo JacketGrowing up, I remember teasing my mum about the sheer volume of jackets and coats she'd amassed.  Well, the jokes on me because I can barely breathe these days underneath my pile of jackets!  No complaints here though, and especially not when it comes to the dilemma of transitional styling.  I'm trying to think ahead right now for the sake of March, by finding ways to bridge the gap between Winter and Summer styling.  My favourite realisation so far?  Tuxedo Jackets are (still) pretty amazing.

Handmade Velvet Embellished Black ChokerI have a big fat issue with dressing separately for day and night, and by this I mean I love bringing elements of 'night dressing' into daytime.  Needless to say, tuxedo jackets totally play into this.  Add a pair of statement earrings and heels, but then tone it down with a casual printed/graphic tee and you've successfully blurred the line!  The umbrella seen in this post is another head-turning accessory that playfully refreshes a tuxedo jacket and I love it.  Designed by Lulu Guinness for Fulton, it features a lightweight frame and recognisable Lulu Guinness branding - which I matched with a DIY velvet choker (anyone else addicted to making chokers?!).

With love,

  8. Love this post and tuxedo jackets! When I was in college I had this vintage tuxedo jacket that I literally wore with everything from jeans to dresses. I wore so much that it fell part. You just reminded me how much I loved it and how I need to find a new one now :)

  10. That is pretty much my everyday work style. I love how the jacket can be dressed down a little, but still is formal enough to wear there.

  13. Loving the vampy vibes in this look. Tux jackets are pretty rad pieces indeed. Best of all they're timeless too. I also like to collect jackets and coats, unfortunately it doesn't stay cold enough over here for me to completely indulge in it

  14. LOL, I also have a "big fat issue with dressing day into night." Why not just bring the nighttime dressing into all day long? I so agree with you! You look beyond amazing - loving your hair and makeup big time xx

  23. Tuxedo jackets used to be a perennial favourite alongside my tweed blazers--still adore them! I'd wear them with any outfit. I had a pair off tuxedo trousers as well but it wasn't a trend then, and so people were always giving me the "what are you wearing" stare. That said, I love your jacket here, it's such a smart look that's also versatile! :) x/Madison

  26. I'm a big fan of tuxedo jackets. They're really versatile items, aren't they? I love how you styled yours with those gorgeous black flares and a white top. So timeless and chic!!! The rolled up sleeves on this jacket make it more urban and day time appropriate...I've always been a fan of rolled up sleeves. It started as a practical thing- I have a really long arms ( I joke that I have monkey arms) so sometimes finding things that fit can be a challenge....but not I embrace it...and I'm fond of rolled up look.

    You look beautiful dear. The location and the photos are superb.

    With that comment about your mother's jackets and coats you made me reminiscent about my childhood. I remember some coats that my mother used to wear. Aren't our mothers our first true fashion role models? I think they are. I remember one coat that my mother used to have, it had this huge bird patch at the back...and now that I think of it, I think that coat really influences my style. To this day I love patches and I love bird prints. Isn't that interesting?

    Have a lovely week!

  27. Pieces that can blend between "day" and "evening" looks are always such great ones to have! I love how classic your tuxedo jacket is, especially styled with the flare jeans. What a fun umbrella, too!

  31. Girl, you can never have too many coats and/or jackets! Tuxedo jackets are a great, classic staple, and versatile (who doesn't love that)! I love the way yours pulls this look together.

    Have a wonderful week Gabrielle!

  32. I love a well tailored tuxedo jacket and I think it is a classic staple every woman should own because it is so versatile. For some reason the designers bring it around as a trend once every decade or so, and a lot of women now-a-days do not gravitate to this particular style of jacket, which is a huge mistake in my opinion. You look lovely in yours, and I like how you mixed it in some fun and casual pieces. That umbrella captured my attention though. I adore it.

  46. Transition periods are always so annoying. I wear thick coat and it ends up being so warm and vice versa! Hopefully warmer days are ahead of us :) I only have one tuxedo jacket which I got some years ago and I only wore it once or twice. I just can't seem to style it without looking too formal. You look gorgeous all in monochrome and the way you dressed makes me want to give tuxedo jacket a second chance :) x

  62. I absolutely love tuxedo jackets, I remember my mum had one hidden in the wardrobe that she kept for posh evenings out like when her and my dad went to a concert or something and I now own a few myself, they always luxe up an outfit. I really like the t-shirt you've worn too, I can't hide my love of anything a bit french haha. You look lovely, as always :)

  81. The jacket is pretty, but my favourite thing about your outfit is your tshirt - I love that play on words! Usually I'm not a fan of tshirts with messages written in French (because most of the time, they've got mistakes in them haha) but this is really witty!
    I wish I had more jackets, but for some reason there's always something wrong when I try them on. Could you believe I don't have a black blazer? Shocking I know haha, I need one!
