Forget the boyfriend's jacket and go for this vintage Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche cropped tuxedo bolero when you need the perfect LBJ (little black jacket) to wear over the perfect LBD or even a gown if you want an edgy look. This wool jacket doesn't button in the front, but it does have three large buttons on each sleeve for decorative purposes. The satin lapels take this jacket from ordinary to formal and that's why it's so useful. It wouldn't look absurd over a slinky jersey gown or a chic cocktail dress. It's dressy, but may easily be worn with a turtleneck and a pair of jeans for a casual look. YSL and Le Smoking are rather inseparable. This is le smoking made versatile and indispensable.
