“A girl should be two things classy & fabulous” Coco Chanel
Hey friends! Women I salute YOU! I know International Women’s Day has come and gone, but I’m all for feeling (and looking) powerful, strong and confident for every occasion. And correct me if I’m wrong, nothing feels more commanding than wearing a striking suit.
The days are gone for only the black, navy or gray suit. Designers have up the game and added some fun colors, textures and patterns for women’s suits. We are more empowered, strong and they’ve become the new power look.
How does a powerful woman dress? For the longest time, woman were conformed to the idea of suits being exclusive to men. Suits have always been great power play. Even before women adopted the suit, suits were another way men would assert their elevated class and position in society. But not ANYMORE! Women’s suits are all the rage and so fun to dress up or down. Here’s too all the colorful girl boss suits for fun, work, date night, girls’ night out and beyond.
I chose a vibrant fierce shade of orange in this naughty gal orange suit. It speaks power, boldness and fun. I couldn’t stop smiling because so many people stopped and were like “WOW”! I wasn’t expecting such reaction but certainly not surprised. The double-breasted blazer and pants are both oversized which I love. They are both true to size but fit on the baggy side. The pants are perfect with belt, paired with a graphic t-shirt, green crossbody bag and super comfy flatform shoes.
Women’s suits have never gone out of style. In the 1920’s, women were occasionally prohibited from entering establishments if they were wearing pants. Imagine that! Now, they are a huge part of the female fashion movement. In spite of it’s menswear origins, a girl boss rocking a suit embodies elegance and confidence with just the right hint of sass.
If you have been following me awhile, you know I’m obsessed with wide legs. I love the flow of them and how they make me appear taller in my 5’4 body and 6’2 head. Women’s suits are great whether they are wide legs, skinny, cropped or ankle. Paired with the right shoe or boots nothing can be said or done.
Adding color to your wardrobe is everything. So adding a pop to a monochromatic look as a women’s suit is even better. The fall and winter is a perfect time to get out of the neutral rut and become a tad more bold. Its so funny, I was at a friends house and scanned through her closet. I literally counted nothing but blacks, neutrals and whites. Some people, well I’m talking to some of you. I know you are afraid!
Working bright shades and bold prints into your wardrobe doesn’t have to be a headache or impossible. Nope! Just breathe, count to ten, and let go of your self-doubt because the fabulous aspect of fashion is diversity, mixing things up and change. Believe me, adding a colored suit is great start without feeling self-conscious and silly.
Stripes, checkered and plaid Oh my. I love mixing patterns together and shying away from the norm. Women’s suit patterns work well if worn separately or together. While its completely fine to stick with solids in women’s suits, mixing things up with patterns can be equally as fun.
I love the color red and the how it makes me feel when I wear it. Red is confidence and power. Red is associated with passion, hot and most often considered sexy. So a red women’s suit speaks for itself. Whether you pair it with heels, platforms, sneakers or boots the red is a perfect POP of color to demand attention. Sass is what you get with a great red suit.
