The tux for your summer wardrobe

Repeat after me – a tuxedo is not a winter-exclusive trend. It can be worn otherwise.

Glad we cleared that.

After all the talk about updating your tuxedo look, there’s no reason for you to wait till fall to do so. Adding some sophistication to the summer wardrobe will only do you good.

This simple two-toned look perfectly blends in with the trend for Northern Hemisphere. The tux-inspired sleeveless shirt teamed with silken rolled-up cigarette pants is the best way to interpret the look for the hot season. The shirt is almost sheer, light cotton and short in length (notice it’s not tucked-in). For chillier nights, add a crisp white jacket to make your attire less predictable.
