Mon Armoire: Le Smoking

Today is a special throwback to 1966, when the Algerian-born designer, my favorite Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized fashion and dropped the famous smoking alive: a tuxedo suit of velvet or wool—black-tie menswear reinterpreted for the female form.

As for the last couple of seasons, the androgynous look is back stronger than ever..and I just love it! There's nothing like wearing a very beautifully cut and sharp outfit to step out of the house and feel as powerful as ever.

My heart fell for this beautiful black jumpsuit from Maje Spring Summer 2014 collection. I love that it has a round collar in satin, reminding us of the classic tuxedo. There are also the tuxedo satin lines on the sides of the pants. I'm a jumpsuit lover and this combination of the menswear classic on a comfortable form of clothing makes the perfect balance.

I don't know if you're an adept of the black smoking but it's definitely a must-have in every lady's closet. Whether you chose to go for a tuxedo blazer or a total tuxedo look, it will be a great choice for important work meetings, a fancy lunch out with your stilettos or the most random date to a cosy restaurant.

I am wearing: black jumpsuit with satin details from Maje SS14, black suede pumps from Gianvitto Rossi, a silver box clutch from my mom's closet and a metallic dark silver bustier underneath the overall to create an interesting contrast.
