UNIFORM | White Tuxedos of the 70s



Clockwise from top left: Bianca Jagger in a Halston suit with Nathalie Delon, 1974; Yves Saint Laurent model in Paris by Pierre Vauthey, 1979; Jodie Foster in Paris by Christian Simonpietri, 1977; Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel on the film set of Rene la Canne by Christian Simonpietri, 1976.

It seems like white tuxes really had a moment in the 1970s. I don't know if I could pull one off, but I totally want one! Would you wear one?

Tuxes are hard to pull off, let alone in white! Let me start in black first...

If I had an appropriate occasion and knew I could pull it off I definitely would! It has a great mix of dressing up while retaining a type of respectful nonchalance.

First, I must say I absolutely adore your blog!! It is seriously one of my favorites.

I had to comment because I know one woman who absolutely pulled off the white tux, my mama, on her wedding day! Granted, this was in 1983 and she is one stylin' Italian lady. She rocked a white tux, except instead of slacks it was a pencil skirt. Cumberbund included. I can only wonder if I could both pull it off AND look like a super babe! I have it in my closet and it is incredible. For the longest time as a child I thought that was typical female wedding wear. :)

Needless to say, my mama is definitely one reason I embody tomboy style today.

I love the look on other people but I don't think I'd be able to pull it off myself.
I think it's really chic when you wear tuxes but still showing your feminity too (make up, heels, nice hair).
