Afternoon my sweet readers! How’s your weekend going so far? I ran away from Milano’s rainy weather to a much more gentle one in the picturesque city of Modena (it’s just as cold but with no rain). This is the last post from our trendy, tuxedo series. I’ve already given you the jacket and the shirt, now it’s time to show who has the pants, the fashionable pants. Elegant, stylish and distinguished, when this garment picks up the tux trend is only to flatter our figures and enhance our features in a sophisicated way. Even if you add a funky t-shirt, you are always gonna get that dressy and distinguished vibe from them. The cuts, shapes and textures in which you can find this type of trousers are unlimited: slouchy, tappered, cigarette, flared, velvet, wool and more. So pick the one that suits you best and start tuxing!

This time I wanted to downplay the whole ensemble. The tux trousers themselves are a powerful garment, so by using basic and soft colored pieces, I think I achieved a rather casual vibe. I chose a pair of cropped and fitted pants from ASOS. I paired it up with a double tiered, jersey blouse from Miu Miu, cute but not over-the-top. For coverage, a rebel twist, a blush, leather biker from Zara (this is an investment you won’t regret, you can use it with just about everything). For the shoes, the most coveted pair of flats, the loveliest of them all, Charlotte Olympia’s Kitty flats.
Since the kitten ballerinas have made us feel a little feline, let’s add some leopard to the mix. This duffle bag from Steve Madden* has the perfect price and style. For jewelry, a statement necklace from Accessorize. Generally, this would be used with a more dressy, dressy, ensemble but since we are playing with contrasts… For your hands, a golden ring trio: one with your initials, one with a little bird (both from Urban Outfitters) and another one with an acqua stone from Topshop. The final detail, Essie’s School or Hardrocks for your nails.
That’s it for the day. Now you are ready to embrace de tux trend to the max! I’m prepared for our next series of posts, wanna know what’s it all about? Check back tomorrow!
