Spotted: Sequin Balmain-esque tux jacket at Express.

Express jacket I was doing some speed shopping at the Beverly Center yesterday.  As I whizzed past Express, a striking black tux blazer caught my eye.

The sharp lapels and slouchy fit are very fitting for fall.  But it was the sequin and studded lapels and collar that flooded my brain with the Balmain runway collection.

This Express version doesn’t have the signature super-sized shoulders, but if you’re dedicated, sticking some pads in there is always an option. Plus, the Express jacket is just $98.

 Happy (fall) shopping.
