Katie Holmes isn’t the only super-stylish star that we’ve noticed in a tuxedo lately — from Kirsten Dunst to Penelope Cruz, celebs have realized that this simple pantsuit is the perfect solution to what to wear to a party. We think it’s a great answer for what to wear to your office’s holiday party, too. What is easier to transition from a day at the office to a night on the town than a well-cut black pantsuit? Slip a glitzy top under a blazer to liven it up, or pair a classic tuxedo shirt with trousers for a traditional look. And of course, a little bit of bling and some sexy heels makes everything more festive. Here are a few of our favorites.
For a subtly sexy blouse option, try this sheer Tuxedo top from Rebecca and Drew, $255, or go for all-out sparkle in this silver Jill Stuart cinched top. Or keep it simple with this Behnaz Sarafpour for Target silk tank.
Add the icing on the cake with glittering jewels that don’t break the bank. Try these stacked “diamond” rings from Fauxsie $35 each, or get bold with this all-black stunner from All the Rage, $12. Tie on this jewel-bedecked necklace from Banana Republic, $42, throw on these satin pumps for Abaete for Payless, $25, and you’re ready to party!
