Is This an Athleisure Trend or a Red Carpet Trend? You Decide.

Janelle Monáe is no stranger to topping best dressed lists. In fact, the stylish star is known for taking fashion risks and starting new red carpet trends. Of course, her latest formal look is no exception: It's unique, playful, and trendy to boot.

The actress was honored at Essence's annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards, where she took home the award for Breakthrough Actress and stunned in a creative tuxedo. Monáe skipped the gown and went for a classic white tux jacket sans shirt but opted for a sporty look when it came to her trousers. She donned a playful pair of white tracksuit-inspired pants with yellow piping to complement the traditional black trim. The fit, while relaxed, was still structured enough to balance her dressy jacket and geometric clutch. We don't know about you, but we're totally feeling Janelle's traxedo!
