Tuxedos have been the sartorial savior of men for formal events. Tuxedos aren't a new style and have been in history of menswear for a long time. In this long history, people who observe would have noted that the tuxedos have undergone little to no changes all these years. We are talking about a century old history and this is extremely rare for a garment to have maintained its original style for this long a time. Even today when we say tuxedos, our mind automatically conjures up the image of a black tuxedo with white shirt and a black bow tie. This is because of the fact that this is known for us to be the standard style when it comes to tuxedos. But the tuxedos are also undergoing changes as we speak in the modern times.
If you are a fan of the award events or simply fashion events then you would have noted the increasing number of celebrities attending the red carpet events in colored tuxedos that aren't black. This was not the case few years before or for the last decade. Times are changing and with it the tuxedo style. The colored tuxedos are starting to gain popularity and people are starting to accept the ones that aren't black.
If you are one among these people who are already bored with the black tuxedo style and wouldn't mind trying out new styles then lilac tuxedo must be your next try. Lilac tuxedo is a good option when you want to try on a new style and isn't afraid to turn heads in the process. A lilac tuxedo isn't an easy choice and thus it is important that you have a certain level of confidence to rock the outfit.
Most men tend to steer clear of lilac tuxedos or any garment in lilac for that matter since there is a common misconception that lilac is a feminine color and thus is reserved for the ladies to rock. If you go through the history you will know that restricting colors on the basis of gender is only a recent process and one that you will never see even in the most uncivilized times. Portraits of children of those times show the kids dressed in gender neutral outfits that are mostly white which even makes the historians hard to figure out the gender of the children. Only after the children reach a certain age level they are dressed in clothes that helps identify their gender. Even these clothes are designed in a functional sense so that the children could go on about their daily activities in a comfortable manner. No record in history shows people favored certain colored clothes in regard to their gender. It is high time that we understand that the things that we wear aren't for the people to see but it is for our own comfort. Therefore, it is the best time to try on colors that you haven't tried on before because the society now also have turned accepting than it was before.
Lilac tuxedos may not work when it comes to formal black tie events but you can still wear them when you see the word optional in ten dress code that is attached to the invitation of the event that you are attending. Also, lilac tuxedo is a good choice for fun events like award shows and parties. Proof of this would be the increasing number of celebrities confidently rocking the lilac tuxedo style in the red carpets of the important events like the Oscars and the Academy Awards. Never restrict the lilac tuxedo style to the celebrities and think that you cannot pull it off. When you style it right you can easily pull off the lilac tuxedo style or any style for that matter.
