They’re back!! It’s all about the pantsuit this fall! They’re chic, sophisticated and uber sexy! This round – they’re coming back more interestingly than ever! More stylish, more adaptable…more fun! I say go for it and do it in a big way for now and into the fall season.
Tahari by Arthur S Levine steps up to the plate in this classic one button blazer black pantsuit that stretches in all the right places and will get you seen wherever you go. Pair it with a lace kami or be brave and go bare beneath! Under the hood of the understated man-tailored top. You can’t go wrong with an outfit that takes you from casual to boardroom in a matter of mini-minutes and with very little forethought! Form-fitting and super flattering this will be your go-to basic for year-round flattery.
Still in black, but with the added zip of a zipped front drawing lots of interest is this Jovani sleeveless pantsuit with Mandarin collar and beaded shoulders. It’s amazing as it gives the illusion of a jumpsuit but offers the practicality of a two-piece pantsuit with the allure of evening wear. But don’t hesitate to wear it anywhere and catch some stares!
Not quite ready to be finished with summer yet? I’m currently obsessed with this floral blue ikat print summer shorts suit – complete with requisite tassels!! All eyes will be on you when you wear it too. It screams fun, sexy and cool!
This look is red hot. Everyone will see you coming and will certainly make way for you in your approach. Tahari ASL pairs a sleek kiss closing tailored blazer with form-fitting, classic slim leg pants. How can you lose? You’ll get noticed for all the right reasons! Note to self-decide for yourself if you’ll wear a tank top under the jacket…or not!
Since Marlene Dietrich made it normal and stylish for women to wear suits we can certainly take her lead and add the caveat that it’s no longer a must-do to wear a plain blouse underneath! So, step up your usual pantsuit and make it interesting. Of course, as always, you must pick your poison and keep in mind what you’re hoping to accomplish; after all, if it’s office wear, at some point you simply must concentrate and get some work done! Absent that, the sky’s the limit in how you can make a pantsuit statement! Sexy or serious you can carry off the pantsuit look with a few tweaks (tricks!) of the trade! Bold, inappropriate? Of course, the look is not for every occasion. But you know you can carry the trendsetting look off effortlessly. So, check out this red, black and ivory color-block creation from Shopaholic. Pair it with black booties and you’re set!
So, for a mid to late summer change of pace that will last well into the fall, give the old standby the pantsuit a second look. You’ll end up being fabulously on point as the summer season heats up or cools down as you approach fall. Whatever the traffic will bear! Have fun with this and post pics!
