With New Year’s Eve just over a week away, it’s time to seriously plan our festive party attire. Although your first thought may not turn to a tuxedo jacket, it really should! Once reserved for only the most formal of occasions, the tuxedo jacket has become a smart wardrobing piece that can go the distance between evening and daytime chic. Add one to your little black dress for parties this season, then turn it into a casual topper for dark wash jeans, boots and embellished tees the rest of the year.
