Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
We’ve all (at least once) examined the abyss of our wardrobe longing for the perfect coat to top that dress, or seriously amp up your best pair of jeans. You love the look of your gent’s formal jacket thrown over your shoulders on chilly nights, but only wish it hugged your feminine shape a bit tighter. Emilio Pucci, giving us sought after vintage garments in graphic and abstract prints in pastels and easter egg colors for years, has answered our jacket-must-have quandaries for the here and now.
Pucci’s grosgrain-trimmed, wool and silk-blend tuxedo jacket is so gorgeous and smart, it practically puts any of the classic versions to shame and will undoubtedly gain immediate adoration from any style maven. At first glance it gives a solid Fred Astaire nod, but look again and there’s some serious Ginger Rogers undertones. For a fall lunch date at that cute bistro, wear this tuxedo jacket over a black or white fitted tee and skinny black leather pants. Even still, opt for the perfect topper to a floor length, black jersey silk gown when you’ve really got to dress to impress. Slip your manicured hands through the front panel slits for a capelet effect, and you’ve got the ultimate black-tie accessory. Versatile, classic in black-and-white, and just plain beautiful.
The Emilio Pucci wool and silk-blend tuxedo jacket is available at NET-A-PORTER.
