In the fashion industry, everything is fast-paced and trends come and go therefore I recommend that you forget about trying to catch up with all the latest trends lest you end up with a closet full of outdated clothes.
That said, how can one look impeccably stylish without being a slave to fashion? The answer is quite simple; purchase more classic fashion pieces and less of the trendy ones. One example of a classic item of clothing is the suit. For many years, women have been borrowing men’s wardrobe staples namely neckties, wifebeaters, boyfriend shirts, boyfriend jeans, and of course, suits. Out of all those I’ve mentioned, I find that the suit is classier and, assuming you are wearing the correct fit, guaranteed to make any women look sexy and put together.
Below are some ideas on how to suit up this Fall 2012:
Go for a patterned suit if you want to stray away from the classic solid color ones you see everywhere. This patterned suit from Prada Fall 2012 is packed with a lot of personality perfect for the trendy girl. The good thing about this is that since it is a suit, it will most likely still be fashionable after a couple of years or so despite the bold design.
If you think you are not quite ready for such a bold statement as the patterned Prada suit pictured above, then take your cue from this Louis Vuitton ensemble. Stick to neutral colors with distinctive details (i.e. large buttons). If you can’t find anything that has unique details, then make up for it by wearing statement piece accessories.
…Or if not statement piece accessories, then attention-grabbing tops like the one from this Paco Rabanne ensemble. Amp up your otherwise dull suit by wearing a sparkly or patterned top underneath your blazer; instant chic!
Two words: bold colors. This blood red Miu Miu suit oozes sex-appeal and it’s already a statement in itself. You can opt not to wear too much accessories with this; a simple pair of stud earrings and a watch are enough for such an attention-grabbing color.
I’m not saying that you should purchase designer suits because I am well aware that some people can’t afford to splurge on designer duds *cough*me*cough*. The above photos are just examples to give you ideas on how you can amp up an ordinary suit, or a guide for when you decide to buy one.
