In case you are looking to impress people with your sense of style, there is one item that you should make sure to wear as often as possible: a tuxedo jacket having contrast lapels. As you might have thought, the style and design have been inspired by menswear.

Although at first the sound of tuxedo jacket seems more than formal, you would be amazed by the versatility of the piece. If you are going for the formal look, match the jacked with long flared pants. On the other hand, when rocking your leisure style, opt for cuffing the sleeves. Let’s see how the celebrities manage with their tuxedo jacket.
