The history of tuxedo pants revisited for women
The tuxedo takes its name from the “smoking room”, this place of relaxation formerly reserved for men . This chic outfit, consisting of straight suit pants, a jacket and a wide belt, was also worn during social evenings. It was customary for women to wear a long dress.
In the 1960s, the great fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent shook up dress codes by adapting the design of the traditional men's tuxedo to the feminine silhouette. The first women's pantsuit was thus born. This timeless costume has become, throughout the ages, a symbol of freedom.

Our tips for caring for your women's tuxedo pants
You definitely don't wear tuxedo pants every day. However, when the desire arises to assert your style with your favorite suit pants, you want to find them like the first day. It is therefore essential to maintain it well and store it correctly so that it remains like new for a long time .
Cleaning and ironing a woman's tuxedo pants
Whether for a complete cleaning or a simple ironing, entrust your clothes to a professional. The safest and most effective method for maintaining your women's tuxedo pants is undoubtedly dry cleaning. Dry cleaning preserves wool or silk fibers. If you choose to machine wash your tuxedo pants, choose a cycle for delicate clothes (30°C maximum).
Unless there is a stain, quality tuxedo pants do not need to be washed after each wear. Spacing out the washes helps keep the fabric of your suit pants in perfect condition. The same goes for a tuxedo jacket or blazer. Between two cycles, you can brush your pants (and your blazer if you have a full suit).
If you have to iron your women's tuxedo pants yourself, be careful with the heat of the iron. Set it to the wool or silk position, with the steam on maximum so as not to mark the fabric. You can also use a steamer . Do the same with your tuxedo jacket if necessary.
Storing your women's suit pants
Do you own a complete tuxedo, jacket and pants? Avoid the metal hanger. Prefer a shaped hanger, lightly padded. Then place your suit pants and jacket set in a cotton cover to protect it from dust. To store women's tuxedo pants alone, use a specific hanger .
You have the choice between the clamp model and the horizontal bar model. With the first, your suit pants hang by the bottom of the legs . The weight of the belt and pockets thus tightens the fabric and prevents creases from forming. The second requires careful folding of your tuxedo pants, flat and superimposed front and back pleats.
Complete your wardrobe by purchasing straight pants or leather leggings from our women's collection. Do you prefer fitted knit pants? We offer a large selection of trendy Milano knit pants . Also discover our selection of dresses and skirts and our leather shoes for women.
