Congratulations Christel Tam, you’re InStyle.com’s Reader of the Week! Vancouver native Christel Tam and December’s You Can Do: Tuxedo proves that tuxedos are not just reserved for men—they actually look remarkably chic on women, too! Exclusively to InStyle.com, Tam revealed, “This gorgeous velvety tuxedo had been sitting in my closet for two whole years because every time I’ve tried it on in the past, I felt like I was stealing my husband’s look! After reading You Can Do in the December issue, I paired my masculine-inspired blazer with more feminine silhouettes (like this gorgeous lace dress and bejeweled satin red heels) to counterbalance the masculine overtones.” She’s definitely hit the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.
