A Fashion Icon – Le Smoking Tuxedo Jacket

To portray elegance and style, we don’t need luxurious items. Having said that, I think there are pieces worth investing in. These pieces have unique designs and can be worn or used year after year. They are not merely trending pieces that are special for a couple of months and then disappear; they can be designated as ‘classics’  because of their perennial style.

Today’s inspiration board is dedicated to one of these outstanding pieces created by Yves Saint Laurent in 1966, Le Smoking Tuxedo jacket. This iconic item, making up part of a suit, revolutionized the world of fashion since, at that time, it was not common for women to wear pants in public. Now, let’s fast-forward almost 50 years to the present day: today we can combine this same tuxedo jacket not only with pants but also with dresses, skirts, and even jeans. This is the kind of luxurious piece that is a worthy investment.

Thank you for reading!

Enjoy the rest of the week!
