The Tuxedo Way

The Tuxedo Way

The tuxedo is a ubiquitous symbol of celebration. Across all levels of society, if an occasion calls to dress up, donning a tuxedo would be a norm.

This American formal attire has over the years seen a wider acceptance. With drama added to the way it’s styled, the tux becomes the unrivalled choice for occasions ranging from a formal gathering to the more relaxed soiree.

Increasingly, red carpets from major events across the globe have witnessed dapper celebrities strut down in their custom fit Tuxedos. They’ve got the women drooling and us completely vouching for the trend.

Knowing how to style a tuxedo however, will put you at the top of your fashion game. The classic combination of crisp tailoring and solid colors will not just put you ahead of the league, but if styled correctly will warrant the attention.

Hollywood celebrities have taken the fashion world by storm with their power tuxedos. From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, the tux has become a red carpet favorite.

Musician, businessman and philanthropist when you have a little too many feathers in your hat, what you wear and how you wear it has everyone talking. Usher opted for a 20 carat Platinum and Diamond Lorraine Schwartz brooch to elevate his Golden Globe attire. A brooch is probably the hardest piece of jewelry for a man to wear, especially accompanying a Tux. But trust Usher for ‘ushering’ a new frenzy.

If you are Jared Leto, there’s no way that a tux will put you down. At the 86th Annual Academy awards the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ star walked up to receive his lady in gold looking every bit a winner in a pristine white tuxedo with a platinum and diamond dress set complimenting his look.

The name by itself is synonymous with the Tux dressing. At the 72nd Golden Globes, while still keeping it traditional in white and black, Firth added a dash of bling wearing platinum and a pearl shirt stud set by Neil Lane.

Noticed a trend? The tux and Platinum jewelry combined form a lethal combo. While the Platinum sheen brightens the tux, its subtleness blends well with the character of the suit. And when the two come together, it creates an aura that will not fail the man.

So, inspired by what we believe is here to stay, FashionMostWanted will soon present our very own Indianized version of the trend. Stay tuned for our fresh take on the Tux, letting you in on the secrets to styling one.
