The two-piece pantsuit has gotten a bad wrap over the last few years due to some unfortunate attempts at making it chic. Well, I’m here to make it cool again.There’s something about putting on a great suit that makes you feel like you can take on the world. While of course this is not in your everyday round up, a great suit can be just the power outfit you need. It will give you the confidence to help nail that big meeting at work or feel extra fancy at your next networking event. Here are a few of my go-to tips for mastering this wardrobe wonder.
Fit is everything
We’ve all seen how an ill-fitting suit just doesn’t quite work the way it should. Make sure your jacket is fitted at the shoulders and sleeves and has the right structure to fit your body type. Taking your suit to a tailor to get it fitted exactly to your frame. It will be a perfectly flattering fit.
Use accessories to pop the look
First time purchasing a two-piece? Opt for a neutral hue like black, grey, or navy for the suit, and use your blouse and great accessories to add visual interest. While you can never go wrong with a simple white silk shell underneath, think colors, pattern, and texture as alternatives to pair with your neutral base.
Pay attention to proportions
There are a variety of different silhouette options to select from when it comes to suit shapes. I recommend opting for a skinnier leg to pair with a tapered jacket and a wider leg if you wear a more cropped look. But there are certainly instances to mix and match! But make sure you’re balancing proportions in the right way to flatter your body.
I absolutely love this bold, floral statement making suit. If you work in a creative and somewhat casual environment, you can have a little fun by going big with your patterns. When you done right, the final look is perfection.
