The No Trousers Red Carpet Trend Jennifer Lopez and Meghan Markle Both Love

I love a good suit. An alternative to the traditional cocktail dress, I love opting for tailored pieces for weddings and other formal events. However, come summertime, I’m a pretty big advocate for going trouser-less. This is why I’m such a fan of the trend that celebs like Dua Lipa and Jennifer Lopez just can’t stop wearing on the red carpet: the tuxedo dress.

The perfect marriage of a suit and minidress, tuxedo dresses are essentially just elongated tuxedo jackets or blazers and are sometimes cinched at the waist. They're a surefire way to look polished for any occasion. What I love most about them is their versatility. They look great paired with towering sandals or pumps, but they can just as easily be paired with any of 2021’s sneaker trends for a casual yet elevated look. Another styling tip? Many tuxedo dresses have an oversized fit, so I love pairing mine with a designer belt to create some shape.

Ahead, I scoured the internet for the best tuxedo dresses out there (at every price point, of course) so you can step up your night-out game in a big way. Keep scrolling to shop all of my picks.
