Spring Style Notes: The New Smoking Jacket

Give your LBD a rest and instead opt for this season's It eveningwear, the sensual tuxedo. In between a formal gown and the sometimes too cutesy cocktail dress, this season's tux exudes elegance, sensuality and a ton of swag. The new le smoking jacket has been reimagined at houses like Saint Laurent and Ralph Lauren into numerous styles ranging from cropped to sleeveless. These sexy tailored silhouettes may be borrowed from the boys, but the results are purely feminine.
