Diane von Furstenberg Tuxedo for Women
When it comes to investment dressing, there are few items as timeless and singularly spectacular as the tuxedo for women. Has androgyny ever looked so sexy? And, really, who doesn't want to channel Marlene Dietrich in a '50s Paris nightclub? Love it.

I've been looking for a good excuse to go out in a gorgeous, sleek tuxedo for a while. Yes, the visions of Marlene (as well as lovelies like Charlize Theron, Lauren Hutton and Chloe Sevigny) are a big factor, but the celeb envy isn't the only reason. The tuxedo is an incredibly flattering choice for women, and a fun option for those days where you want to dress up but don't feel like wearing a cocktail dress all night. Plus, it's such a timeless look. Like a LBD or a luxe trench coat, a ladies tuxedo will never go out of style. Not only is that a great factor for building a wardrobe, but also a big part of making the decision to invest in a quality version.

If you are in the place to invest in a great woman's tuxedo, consider this gorgeous Diane von Furstenberg tuxedo. It's comprised of two separate pieces: the Tailor Tuxedo Pants and the Meyer Tuxedo Blazer. Both pieces are 100% wool with moiré detail -- tuxedo stripes on the pants, lapels on the blazer -- which are best viewed in the close up pictures you can see when you click through. The pants have a higher rise, which gives the look an overall '70s-ish feel, but doesn't vibe overly dated. The final result is a quality tuxedo that is more affordable than a super high-end YSL version, but still a great quality that will last for years.
