Philosophy-di-alberta-ferretti-tuxedo-jacke.jpgYou don’t need a formal occasion to enjoy one of this season’s hottest looks. Taking a page from the handbook of classic men’s formal wear, tuxedo-inspired blazers are fall fashion tour de force. If you think he looks good in that dinner jacket, wait till you try it on for yourself.

Pairing a slim, elegant cut with alternating textures—like satin lapels and pockets—a well-fitting tuxedo jacket is an easy way to dress up your workday look or add a couture touch to a night out on the town.

We especially love Tory Burch’s Olivier Wool Gabardine Blazer ($495 at toryburch.com) and this ice white tuxedo jacket from Philosphy di Alberta Feretti ($895 at neiman marcus.com).
