One of our favorite looks for an evening out is a tuxedo-inspired ensemble; the classic combination of crisp tailoring and a sleek silhouette makes it a foolproof way to keep things chic. Dating back to YSL’s iconic Le Smoking suit, tuxedo dressing remains a timeless (and popular) look today through its many different interpretations. As of late, we noticed the trend having a serious moment on various red carpets—here are three new inspired-by ways to try the look for yourself.
The Inspiration: Amber Heard
Amber looked sleek in an all-black Stella McCartney ensemble at the Tribeca Film Festival. To add subtle interest to a classic tux jacket, try a version with a modern tie detail at the lapel.

The Inspiration: January Jones
January Jones rocked this Prabal Gurung jumpsuit for the Good Kill premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. An all-in-one alternative to the traditional blazer-and-trousers suiting combo, a collared, sleeveless jumpsuit is a sexy option for eveningwear.

The Inspiration: Blake Lively
At a premiere party for The Age Of Adaline, Blake showed off some leg in a sheer Monique Lhullier bodysuit topped with a longline jacket. Rather than incorporating sheer elements from head-to-toe, try the look with a blouse and then pair it with your favorite wool or denim trousers.
