How to Wear a Suit and Not Bore Yourself to Tears
Whether you wear suits out of work necessity or because you have an undeniable admiration of Melanie Griffith, you can still easily fall into a trap of fashion boredom. But it doesn’t have to be so, as evidenced by these fashionable ladies below, all of whom jazzed up their business professional wear by playing with color, silhouettes and fab accessories.
THINK BEYOND BLACK AND NAVY
We’re not saying you have to go to rainbow lengths, but to spice things up a bit, think about dressing up in colors other than the traditional neutrals. Rich colors like burgundy or olive green are refreshing without being too crazy.
WEAR A PRINTED SHIRT UNDERNEATH
If you’re wearing this in a work environment, maybe make sure the neck is cut a bit higher, but the general idea is that layering a blazer over a printed blouse makes an otherwise plain gray ensemble infinitely more fashionable—and modern.
DRESS IT DOWN WITH A T-SHIRT AND SNEAKERS
If silk blouses and heels aren’t really your style, pair your attire with casual basics like a plain white tee and simple sneakers. There’s something so effortless about this look that, honestly, makes the whole concept far more approachable.
LAYER IN SOMETHING STRIPED
If you’re like us, you already wear French-inspired striped shirts on the regular, so why not wear one on this to give a twist? The resulting look is slightly more casual and totally cool.
WEAR IT WITH LOAFERS
This is kind of the women’s look of our dreams. Instead of fighting the masculine connotations of a suit with, say, feminine shoes, embrace the menswear trend and pair it with a cool pair of loafers. The bare sliver of ankle is the icing on the cake.
