This ReStyle ensemble was so much fun! We styled Alden in our men’s tux jacket, “Le Smoking” style a la Yves St. Laurent circa 1966, a style made popular by Helmut Newton photos depicting a woman with slicked backed hair and dark eye makeup. This play on a minimalist & androgynous look can be both masculine & feminine depending upon how you style it. The look can be empowering yet chic. See how our tux jacket looks on a man and compare. Check out the behind the scenes look and let us know, would you wear a men’s jacket over your favorite dress or pants? Do you wear boyfriend jeans? A shirt & tie?
Alden wears the men’s size 44 Ehren jacket produced by BurdaStyle. Plaid dress, her own.
Wool suiting, silk satin, silk lining, shoulder pads, interfacing, satin covered buttons
