Just when you thought pandemic dressing had taken over your workwear wardrobe, fashionistas everywhere have brought back an almost fading trend—the pantsuit. If models, actors and influencers have any say, the power suit is here to stay! It’s a good thing though because these babies can take you from desk to date, from day to dinner in no time- making it a wardrobe must-have.
However, it’s important to find the perfect suit to flatter your figure so you will feel fabulous and comfortable at the same time. When it comes to office suits for ladies you have to pick the best possible shapes and fit for your figure, as well as accessories with the perfect under-top, handbag and shoes.
Whether you want to try an 80s’ inspired checkered blazer, a hot pink pantsuit or an ultra-stylish skirt suit, here’s how to wear a pantsuit with flair and rock every look:
Choose a Colour that You’ll Wear Again
Don’t be afraid to go beyond standard blues and blacks. In order to figure out what colour suit you should invest in, think about the colours you normally wear. Think mustard, wine red or sage green. You can also look online for a colour combination cheat sheet that you could work with. Take a cue from One Tree Hill stars Hilarie Burton, Sophia Bush and Bethany Joy Lenz as they came together for a friendship test in mustard, black and pink power suits. You can then utilize the jacket with a pair of jeans or wear it over a dress if you like.
Adding a monochromatic outfit to your wardrobe can be a lot of fun and a great way to spice things up while bringing power and grace to your fashion experience. Skip the regular corporate wear for your next business meeting and go for an all-white pantsuit like Parineeti Chopra’s fierce white powersuit. Once you try it on, you’ll automatically give off BOSS LADY vibes! Tone down the accessories by going for simple studs and a pair of white heels to complete the look.
Focus on the Fabric
When you’re looking for a suit, focus on the fabric that moves with you—this means fabric with an added stretch including the lining. It helps accommodate different frames no matter what your size. Additionally, stretchy fabric is cozy so you don’t have to give up comfort for style.
Take a page from Anushka Sharma’s book of risk-taking pantsuits and opt for bold colours and patterns that are instantly statement-worthy! You can go easy on the accessories by choosing minimalistic jewellery since the suit is the centre of attention. If you feel like dialling it up, add a pair of black elastic ankle boots and a black leather purse to finish this getup.
Style it with a Turtleneck
Layering your suit over a turtleneck is an amazing idea for a stylish and winter-friendly ensemble. Wear a white turtleneck with a light blue suit if you’re aiming for a clean-cut fashion ensemble. Let your sartorial savvy shine by completing this look with white low top sneakers and shake things up a bit.
Go Sheer or Go Home
Sheer tops and blouses are perfect when it comes to a head-to-toe suit look, but you must wonder if they’re good for a professional environment. Well, there’s a solution to that! Find the perfect sheer pussy-bow blouse and add a spaghetti strapped camisole underneath to create the perfect office-ready look. This helps to create an illusion of skin without actually revealing anything and looks chic under a blazer.
Make Yourself Glow with a Blush Tone
Choose a rosy pink suit for a refreshing change from the usual dark colours. Pink has an upbeat, optimistic vibe and you can spend a lot of money on luxury suits in this shade. Introduce white leather pumps to the equation as a fail-safe way to induce elegance into this outfit.
Go Bright for the Weekend
We’ve seen corporate suits stick to dull colours like grey or black. Well, not anymore. Bold colours are making much more of an impression today. Pick a royal blue pantsuit for your next work event. Black suede heeled sandals are a great way to power up this ensemble.
