Tuxedos have been cool for men since James Bond started wearing them in the ‘60s—but the tuxedo dress didn’t really take off until earlier this year when the new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, rocked one at a charity function, causing women everywhere to fall in love with the trend. The sexy menswear-inspired look can be achieved by wearing an oversized tuxedo jacket tightened with a belt, a pair of heels and (most importantly) no pants. Shops in the Corridor have a variety of options to choose from so you can show up to your next party in style!
