I love a good holiday dress like anyone else, but sometimes a classic tux makes more sense. From a #buylessbuybetter perspective it’s a look you can return to again and again, plus you can wear the pieces separately–the jacket with jeans, the pants or shorts with a blouse. Pair it with heels and a camisole and it’s sexy, switch it up with a buttoned-up blouse and pointy-toe flats and it becomes gamine. I bought the Pallas version here, which is on sale, and will rely on it for years to come.
