Who said tuxedo suits are only for men? Not me, and certainly not the styling women who wear them! Women’s tuxedo suits are classy, elegant and comfortable.
A tuxedo (American English) also known as a dinner jacket (British English), or simply a dinner suit, is a semi-formal evening suit distinguished primarily by satin or grosgrain facings on the jacket’s lapels and buttons, and a similar stripe along the out seam of the pants.
Most tuxedos are black or midnight blue and worn with a formal shirt, top or blouse, although women’s tuxedos in other colors look smashing!

Tuxedo Fun Fact: Tuxedo in the form of menswear originated in the United States around 1888. It was named after Tuxedo Park, a Hudson Valley enclave for New York’s social elite, where it was often seen in its early years. The term was capitalized until the 1930s and at first referred only to the jacket. When the jacket was later paired with its own unique pants and accessories in the 1900s, the term began to be associated with the entire suit.
Complete Tuxedo Garments Include:

  1. Jacket, Coat or Blazer
  2. Trousers or Slacks
  3. Blouse or Top
  4. Tie or Bow Tie
  5. Rocking High Heels
  6. Accessories
  7. Clutch Bag

Tuxedo Fun Fact: The most popular uses of the tuxedo in the United States at present are for formal weddings, galas, dances, formal proms and formal nights on cruise ships. In these circumstances, the tuxedo’s styling and accessories are most commonly chosen according to the wearer’s tastes.
The tuxedo’s accompaniments have evolved over time. The most traditional interpretation of these elements – formal shirt, formal low cut waistcoat, black bow tie, formal shoes – is incorporated in the black tie dress code.
Be a woman of the town whether you are dressed in a elegant tuxedo suit or a glamorous evening gown!

Women’s pantsuits were introduced in the 1920s, when a small number of women adopted a masculine style, including pantsuits, hats, canes and monocles. However, the term “trouser suit” had been used in Britain during the First World War, with reference to women working in heavy industry. During the 1960s, pantsuits for women became increasingly widespread.
The earliest tuxedo jackets were of the same black material as the dress coat with one, two or no buttons, and a shawl collar faced in satin or ribbed silk. By the turn of the twentieth century, the peaked lapel was equally popular and the one-button model had become standard.

Tuxedo Fun Fact: When tuxedo pants are sold with the dinner jacket, they are the same material. The first tuxedos tended to be black or gray. By World War I, the gray option had fallen out of favor, and midnight blue became an increasingly popular color choice. Notch lapels, imported from the ordinary business suit, were in vogue in the 1920s.
Feminine high fashion in a tasteful tuxedo suit!

Nancy Mangano’s Tuxedo Fashion Tip: Women look sensual and gorgeous in tuxedo suits, and pull the masculine garment into a feminine vibe! Whether you prefer to wear a satin or ruffled blouse under the jacket, or no blouse at all, tuxedo suits give off the fashion effect of classy and confident!

Long diamond earrings and diamond chokers are fabulous accessories to complement your radiant tuxedo suit. Not one to wear real diamonds? Go with the costume jewelry rhinestone look! Just as exquisite with minimal cost!
Although the tuxedo is a form of evening wear, a true glamour girl dresses to her preference. Tuxedo suits work just as well for bridal brunches, speaking engagements or merely to strut your stuff through a mall!
Tuxedo suits work for every woman, one and all!

Tuxedo Fun Fact: ‘Dinner Jacket’ in the context of menswear first appeared in England around 1887 and in the United States around 1889. In the 1960s, ‘dinner jacket’ became associated in the United States with white or color jackets specifically.
“Man oh man, what a feminine suit wearing woman you are!”
“I rock in my tuxedo suit whether you see me up close or from afar!”
“I love the silk jacket with the soft silk pants. Your velvet tie pulls it all together.”
“My five inch patent leather heels and my ruby jewelry makes the suit look like ‘for her’.”
“I was planning on wearing an evening gown to the theater tomorrow night.”
“I highly suggest a knock-out tuxedo suit. Chic, gorgeous, darling…a beautiful sight!”
Tuxedo Suit: Turn heads in a feminine tuxedo suit. You’ll be glad that you did!

I would like to share my ideal eye shadow and lipstick color combinations that I feel best brings out the fine features of your face!

  3. Purple eye shadows and purple/lavender lipsticks/lip glosses
  4. Green eye shadows and nude lipsticks/lip glosses

Cosmetics have been around for thousands of years. Egyptian men and women used makeup to enhance their appearance. They were very fond of eyeliner and eye shadows in dark colors including blue, red and black. Ancient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago.

Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Eye shadow is a cosmetic that is applied on the eyelids and under the eyebrows. Eye shadow is commonly used to make the wearer’s eyes stand out and look more attractive. Eye shadow can add depth and dimension to one’s eyes, complement the eye color, make one’s eyes appear larger, or simply draw attention to the eyes. Eye shadow comes in many different colors and textures and is usually made from a powder and mica, but can also be found in liquid, pencil, cream and mousse form.
Lipstick Fun Fact: Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips. Many colors and types of lipstick exist. As with most other types of makeup, lipstick is typically, but not exclusively, worn by women. Some lipsticks are also lip balms, to add color and hydration.
For a lipstick that looks dry and sultry, go with a matte lipstick. For lips that shimmer and shine with a wet look, go with a lip gloss.

Eye shadow can be applied in a wide variety of ways, depending upon the desired look and formulation. Typically application is done using fingers and brushes. Lipstick is generally applied with a brush or through a tube.

Color Fun Fact: There is no denying that colors on the face bring out warmth, beauty, and simply radiate. Color is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple. This perception of color derives from the stimulation of cone cells in the human eye by electromagnetic radiation in the spectrum of light. Color categories and physical specifications of color are associated with objects through the wavelength of the light that is reflected from them. This reflection is governed by the object’s physical properties such as light absorption, emission spectra, etc.

Cosmetics Fun Fact: In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates cosmetics, defines cosmetics as “intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body’s structure or functions.” This broad definition includes any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic/makeup product. The FDA specifically excludes soap from this category.

Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Many people use eye shadow simply to improve their appearance, but it is also commonly used in theatre and plays, to create a memorable look, with bright colors. Depending on skin tone and experience, the effect of eye shadow usually brings out glamour and gains attention. Common ingredients in eye shadows consist of talc, mica, sericite, magnesium stearate, colorants and preservatives.
Lipstick Fun Fact: Throughout the early 20th century, lipstick came in a limited number of shades. Dark red was one of the most popular shades throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. In the early 1930s, Elizabeth Arden began to introduce different lipstick colors. She inspired other companies to create a variety of lipstick shades. By the 1970s, a number of cosmetic companies introduced lipsticks in more unusual colors such as light blue, frosted lime green and silver sparked navy blue. Black lipsticks became popular in the late 1970s and into the 1990s. Today? You can typically find most any color of your choice at cosmetic lipstick counters!

In addition to eye shadows and lipsticks, common cosmetics include mascara, eyeliner, foundation, blush/rouge, skin cleansers, skin lotions, shampoo, hairstyling products (gel, hair spray, etc.) perfume and cologne.
