In #OOTD Daily Style, Style

Sherry’s #OOTD Outfit of the Day Style & Fashion Look: The Office Tuxedo Look

I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.

I dreamed up this look on a whim. I started with really wanting to wear this dress. But I didn’t want to wear it just as it was, a plain wrap dress with some heels and a statement jewellery piece.

Then I rifled through my closet, and my gaze landed on a tuxedo longline duster/blazer, and I thought – hey! This black would pick up the black nicely in the print of the dress, so I thought – why not try it? The sleeves would peek out nicely, maybe it would look amazing, especially if I tried to make the tuxedo longline blazer to become a dress in its own right.

Once I added this black leather obi belt that I DIY-ed, it was like a lightbulb went off.

And the lightbulb flashed: “This. Look. Is. MONEY.”

I love how it looks. The sleeve peeking out, the front of the blazer as a tuxedo lapel, and then the belt tying it all together.

I kept it simple and neutral so that I don’t overpower the look, and added a vintage glass ring to keep it simple:

I even love that the dress underneath peeks out a little with a bit of the print. It’s so perfect!

This is going down as one of my favourite looks of all time. Perfect for work, but also for going out. I can even play bit more with the belt, and wear a simpler wrap belt in black if I didn’t want it to have such a tough biker edge with the black studs.
