How to wear a tuxedo dress

Let’s just say you’re someone who needs to dress formally, or at least semi-formally, in order to be able to work full time, and now you have a company cocktail party or annual dinner coming up. For many ladies, this would be a great opportunity to actually dress feminine or even sexy to look their best. For some others, especially bosses and managers, they may just want to maintain their professional image and continue to dress heavily. In this case, the tuxedo dress would be a good choice. I have collected some of the best tuxedo outfit ideas for you. Let’s look at them now.

Pair the dress with a black ankle strap open toe and a black and white striped clutch bag to complete your black and white outfit. By the way, if you’re wearing a tuxedo dress, you can really control how sexy the confit is by deciding which vest top to wear. In this case, wearing a deep V-neck vest top is a really sexy outfit.
