The Tuxedo


On 5th avenue heading to an H&M party….


Tuxedo trousers: H&M/Fashion Star (similars).  Shirt: Zara.  Leather vest: H&M (try this in a size up). Shoes: Creepers from Trash & Vaudeville. (liking the all whites or check Asos). Bag: Balenciaga

Tuesday night I attended the H&M Fashion Star TV party at the fifth avenue store.  For those outside of the US, Fashion Star is a weekly tv series showcasing up and coming fashion designer’s collections who’s items are judged by major store buyers, H&M included.  The winning collection can be purchased the next day at stores or online.  I got the last pair of these pants on one random afternoon at H&M.  Score!

Took some quick pics of what I wore right before heading into the shop.   Went mono in wide leg tuxedo trousers by Sarah Parrott – one of the designers on the show.  Also a black trimmed shirt and the H&M leather vest which I’m clearly addicted to (this one gets the look too).   Also found tuxedo pant options: here or these are a close match.

TIP: Order a size or two up in the pants and vest for no annoying cling.

Will do a follow up post v. soon of the in-store party!

    the first picture reminds me the moment three years ago, when I was 20 and the biggest dream of my life came true – and i came to new york. this corner on the 5th ave was the place where i got off the cab when i came here. so many great memories 🙂 and so many stylish people, as you :)))

      Thank you! Yes I have to say it’s a good concept. Watch the show on TV and buy the clothes online or in store straight away? Instant shop fix really…

    You are absolutely killing it with this ensemble! There’s that vest again….swoon! Love the style tips…I too like an oversized dress pant worn on the hips. It adds a boyish charm don’t you think?
