Suit Up: 3 Tips for Wearing Stylish Suits
- Make sure it’s a good fit. Nothing ruins a great suit more than when the fit is too big or too tight. No need to go for the boxy 80’s look! Make sure your suit is a good fit for your body’s shape. I love to accentuate my shape with a well-tailored blazer and pencil skirt.
- You don’t have to wear the same suit pieces together. Keep the fabrics similar and try a different blazer with other suit pants. I would often buy multiple blazers and just swap out the bottoms of my pant suits and skirt suits.
- Personalize your suit. Wear a colorful or print blouse under your suit. Adding a statement necklace or earrings to the look can add instant style. Don’t feel that you can’t have fun with a suit. There are a lot of suits with great detailing and stylish accents available. So find one that fits your taste.
Gone are the days when only executives, lawyers, bankers, and politicians wore suits to work. Suits can be worn in almost any industry. Even if you feel that the suit look is not for you, try a more casual suit look — you just might like it.
