Girls just wanna have fun, and sometimes that means dressing up in new, bold ways. Suits are majorly trending this season, but don’t be intimidated by this menswear-inspired trend revival—there are so many ways to make a suit fun and playful, not stuffy and stiff. A suit can be a daring alternative to a dress for the holiday season, or a versatile and chic outfit that’ll take you from day to night. Mixing and matching classic and modern pieces, wearing bright colors and prints, and playing with silhouettes are just a few ways you can modernize a traditional power suit look.
Take a look at some of my favorite ways to update a classic look and suit up this season!
1. Choose bold colors.
Go bold or go home; wear a suit in a bright color for a fun, playful look.
Accessories can make or break an outfit. Add a statement belt to a suit to instantly add that chic factor.
3. Don’t be afraid of pattern or texture.
Suits don’t have to be classic; show your personal style by looking for suits with texture or pattern. You can’t go wrong with a floral, check, or pinstripe print.
4. Play with proportions.
Playing with proportions creates interest in an otherwise classic outfit. Try an oversized blazer with fitted trousers, or opt for other pieces with exaggerated features, like a bell-sleeved suit jacket or wide-leg trousers.
5. Mix classic and trendy pieces.
Make a suit more casual by combining a classic blazer and trousers with a graphic tee and sneakers.
