Lust for Less: Tux Jacket

Tuxedo-style looks were heavily featured on the runways for fall. Obviously this means I need to own a tuxedo jacket - great for throwing on over sparkly party frocks or a tee and jeans! So let's she what options are out there...

This leather lapel jacket by Elizabeth & James is so chic and well tailored, though a pricy $595 at Bloomingdale's - holy moly, even I can't justify that price!
Next up is this faux leather shawl collar jacket. Much more affordably priced at $150 at TopShop, I think it's a bit too slouchy for my petite frame, but a pretty good deal!
Last up, I found this piece at Charlotte Russe - just $40! Probably not the best quality, but a great way to test out the trend without making a serious commitment!
