Not everyone wants to wear a ‘party dress’. Sometimes a dress just feels too, obvious, and a little boring somehow. Sometimes we’re just not feeling a dress. Don’t get us wrong, as as fail-safe go-to piece in your wardrobe, the dress would probably win hands down (particularly for us time-poor mamas who sometimes literally get 10 minutes to get ready!). But sometimes we just want to feel dressed up, but a little more low key about it. The tux is the answer. And because it’s a suit, you have so many options. We love a tux with a tee and jeans (with heels or flats), or a tux jacket over dress… Think Bianca Jagger back in the day, or Kate Moss in the here and now. And a tux and trainers? Always a good idea. The trusty tux is a classic, but a cool one…

ps: these TO DIE FOR (they are on my Christmas Wish List in the ‘dream on’ category – more of that later in the week SC) Alaïa sandals have a scary price tag, but these ones are pretty great too…
