Opinions Wanted: Tuxedo Ideas

I’m gathering ideas for my Tux redo. Here it is, again.

Wool Tuxedo ::$ 5.00 each piece

And, here are some of the contenders.

I should have plenty of fabric to create the peplum effect.

3.1 Phillip Lim Jacket as seen in Instyle Dec. 2011

This would be the easiest, but I’m much less likely to wear a vest than a jacket.

This look is a good argument to make the pants shorts.

This shoulder treatment would definitely solve the power shoulder problem, but would this look work with a shirt under the jacket?

This could be cool, too.

Great argument for making the pants into a high waist skirt!

Or a mini-ish skirt look.

What do you think?

  1. Hey Wanett! I’ve popped over from Refashion Co-op – fantastic score & groovy refashion of the blouse & trousers!
    *I’m loving the peplum effect jacket & high-waisted skirt ideas – gorgeous!
    Have a fantastic Christmas – or – Frohe Weihnachten as we say in Germany! =O)

    • I’m anxious to see results, too. I’ve already opened the inseam of the pants.
      Your blog is so inspiring!! You’ve made some wonderful stuff AND provided me with great thrifty sites via your sidebar!

  2. Well, I like the tuxedo vest, but if you’re not likely to wear it, don’t make it.

    Since you also have pants, you could make the high waisted skirt or the suit shorts. I actually have a pair of black dressy shorts and Iove them.

    • Short skirts are good! I think that the peplum jacket is my fave look, too. But those hems are really crisp. I don’t know that I could make mine so defined.
