Kim Kardashian West can be a little obsessive when it comes to trends—we've lost count of the number of times she's worn a tank top with jogging bottoms and high heels. Her latest phase involves wearing oversized tuxedo jackets as dresses. During New York Fashion Week she wore this look twice in black and camel, and should she pack her bags and travel to Paris, we imagine this short, sharp tailoring will come with her.
She isn't the only one into the idea of the tuxedo dress— Reese Witherspoon wore a blue, high-shine Stella McCartney blazer dress to the Emmys this weekend. The high street is also into this twist on the classic jacket, with Zara, Topshop and ASOS all stocking double-breasted tuxedo dresses in their new drops. The key to getting this look right is to keep accessories to a minimum (like KKW) and paying close attention to the fit on the shoulders and waist.
