Suiting for Women: How to Look Amazing in Suits
If you know me at all you know my love for suits is growing by the minute, I am completely obsessed with finding new ways to style them. Suiting is huge for spring and I have fallen in love with the trend for two reasons, wear-ability and practicality. You can dress them up or down, and break them up and wear them SEPARATELY. Keep reading to see my current favorite suit looks and my philosophy on styling them. I will be sure to include some of my favorite suits I'm lusting over below for your shopping convenience (ya welcome) lol.
This look is all about dressing down your suit in the most casual way. Find yourself a classic pair of sneakers to pair with your suit and keep the accessories and hair simple. I would do minimal accessories and a cool pair of sunglasses and either tousled hair like the photo here or a ponytail with texture. Most importantaly the key to this look is oversized, either look for an oversized fit or buy your suit a few sizes bigger for that relaxed look.
This look is all about comfort and style, silk fabrics exude chicness and that's what makes this look so amazing. If you want to try this look search for a print that you love and will feel comfortable wearing from head to toe, pair it with chic mules or a block heel sandal for a more current look.
Now this look is not for everyone but is definitely a look and I love it. Its all about the accessories here, they instantly change the feel of a basic suit. I suggest a plaid, a funky print, or basic black in order to play up the edgy appeal. Pair with boots or cut out heels and of the moment sunglasses like the ones in this photo or a cat eye pair.
Chic and Polished
Now here is how you elevate a suit, focus on classic accessories and fabrics. Under your suit go for a silk material that moves effortlessly and is not too fussy. For accessories stick to timeless pieces like tortoiseshell sunnies or over-sized black frames ( think Jackie Kennedy) and simple jewelry statements like a classic timepiece and simple earrings. For the suit look for a classic shape and fit with structured shoulders for a put together look, lastly pair with a barely there sandal or pump for a streamlined look.
This look is all about the details, look for pearl button details, ruffle accents, etc. Play up your look with bold girl accessories, like fun scarfs, an embellished brooch, or over-sized sunnies. Lastly don't be afraid to take it up a notch with a statement shoe and top handle bag that exudes lady-like charm. This is the perfect look for tea with the ladies or brunch on the weekend.
