Summer Tuxedo Style

One of my favorite things to wear is a stylized tuxedo.  I'm attracted to tuxedo stripes, tuxedo blazers, and even tuxedo style blouses.
Pants:  New York & Company
I wear a lot of this type of look in the winter, especially around the holidays, but I was contemplating how to get a similar look for summertime.

While I came up with a few creative solutions, the more classic trouser look won my favor.

Blouse:  The Limited
My pants have a satin piping down the leg that adds a subtle dressy vibe.  I added a sleeveless button down bow blouse and played around with the buttons and tie to create slightly different looks for evening, depending on one's level of modesty or personal preference. 
Heels:  Target (Similar here)
I styled the look for evening, but an extra button (or two) would make the outfit suitable for work.
I added bold gold and black jewelry for a more dramatic feel.
Necklace:  The Limited (Available here)
I'm always a fan of an all black look, but I chose a color blocked clutch to add a little color.
Bracelet:  The Limited (Available here)
Do you like tuxedo looks?  Do you like the simplicity of an all black look?
