Happy Fashion Friday Friends!
Does anyone still wear suits anymore? The look is not as popular as it once was, but I still think there is nothing more polished and professional than putting together a look with a jacket.
A suit used to be the newscasters uniform and I still have a closet of color coordinated outfits. I wore suits for work for almost a decade before dresses became much more fashion forward. As the trend switched more to casual clothes for TV, I still tried to find a way to incorporate the suit look without looking dated or frumpy.
One of my favorite looks is a jacket with a pop or color, a matching shell and a neutral colored bottom.
I feel like taking the matchy-matchy out of the suit is a great way to keep the look fresh, updated and totally UN-frumpy. I love the way this teal jacket has fun and interesting details.
Short jackets are also a great way to feel very youthful in a suit.
I’d also play with the length of the skirt and the cut of the pants to make sure your bottoms are in style. In addition to a sleek skirt, pairing a suit jacket with slim legged pants is a perfect way to keep a modern look.
