What To Wear To That Holiday Party: A Tuxedo Like Katie Holmes!

12/12/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Katie Holmes isn’t the only super-stylish star that we’ve noticed in a tuxedo lately — from Kirsten Dunst to Penelope Cruz, celebs have realized that this simple pantsuit is the perfect solution to what to wear to a party. We think it’s a great answer for what to wear to your office’s holiday party, too. What is easier to transition from a day at the office to a night on the town than a well-cut black pantsuit? Slip a glitzy top under a blazer to liven it up, or pair a classic tuxedo shirt with trousers for a traditional look. And of course, a little bit of bling and some sexy heels makes everything more festive. Here are a few of our favorites.

A great tuxedo-style jacket can last a lifetime. Try this one from INC with a sweet satin bow, $126, or this all satin version from Bebe, $198.

Who couldn’t use another pair of black pants? We love these wide-leg satin pants from Marc by Marc Jacobs, $278, or go traditional with Marciano tuxedo pants, $138.

For a subtly sexy blouse option, try this sheer Tuxedo top from Rebecca and Drew, $255, or go for all-out sparkle in this silver Jill Stuart cinched top. Or keep it simple with this Behnaz Sarafpour for Target silk tank.

Add the icing on the cake with glittering jewels that don’t break the bank. Try these stacked “diamond” rings from Fauxsie $35 each, or get bold with this all-black stunner from All the Rage, $12. Tie on this jewel-bedecked necklace from Banana Republic, $42, throw on these satin pumps for Abaete for Payless, $25, and you’re ready to party!

She looks sophisticated. However, this tux is not the greatest. I would rather see something like Eva Mendes’ Roberto Cavalli suit. http://www.whatcelebswear.com/component/option,com_browse/task,product/celebrity_id,343/product_id,2707/

The perfect ensemble to wear to an art opening!
Very sexy and very professional!
Add art to your life and support your local artist(s)! Cheers!

I’m not the biggest Katie Holmes fan, but love the way she’s dressing lately. She generally looks classy and mature, her makeup is natural and pretty, her hair looks good too. Eva’s Roberto Cavalli suit is nice, but I think she forgot to put something on underneath- a bra, cami, something!

I do NOT like the tuxedo look. Nor the tie look (Britney). Women should look like women. It’s not flattering at all. I think it looks completely ugly!

she looks really elegant
