A suit is probably the best wardrobe investment that a woman can make and designers are offering a number of ensemble options for today’s woman. A suit can be worn to work, a ladies luncheon, meetings or to a cocktail party depending on what is worn under the jacket and / or how it is accessorized. Suits come in slimmer styles and relaxed silhouettes that are comfortable, light and fluid. The best way to embrace the suit trend and get the most for your money is to find a jacket you like and then add pants and a skirt that rocks your look.
A beautiful suit can present you as elegant and capable. The jacket should have a simple style without fancy details and have a slightly defind waist. Single breasted jackets flatter most women. Petite and short women look best in short cropped jackets. Taller women can wear longer length jackets. Curvier divas should avoid too much volume (double breasted jackets). Ankle-skimming, slim-cut trousers without a cuff are best for petites. Long, straight-cut trousers are best for fuller figures and pear shapes. Dark colors and styles with vertical lines are most slimming.
Great suits are available at every price. A fabric that can be worn three seasons of the year is the most versatile. Also fabrics with some stretch allows ease of movement and a more flattering fit. A suit or a suit jacket with a non suit skirt or pants says power, sexy and gives women a put together look.
Update your look:
Wear a white T-shirt, turtleneck, chunky sweater or a sequined or lace top under the jacket. Young women can wear a crop top under a suit jacket for a cocktail party.
A suit with a miniskirt worn with slouchy boot has an modern look.
Wear heels with your suit for a night out.
