October 13, 2022 The Investment Piece: A Navy Suit
A navy suit is one of those fashion investment pieces that tops our list. Alongside the LBD, the leather jacket, and the designer handbag, a navy suit can be worn with a silk blouse or t-shirt and still look sophisticated.
You once needed to find a tailor to get a great-looking (and expensive) navy suit with a perfect fit. Nowadays, however, even popular mall brands are producing suits in quality fabrics and fits.
Find one that fits your budget, and then plan to wear it for years to come. Better yet, find one in your nearest fashion resale shop, like Crossroads Trading.
Here are just a few of the styles to look for:
The OG navy suit. Double down and get one with pinstripes.
Show a bit of ankle so you can get eyes on your shoes.
You’ll feel absolutely regal in a velvet version.
Suits come in more casual styles too, like this matching set with a cropped lapel and sleeves.
Don’t forget the skirt suit set! We currently like them with peplum waists and skirts that hit below the knee.
