Suit Yourself

While perusing my favorite style blogs, I came across a ManRepeller article on suits for the holidays. I loved Leandra’s shiny pink suit! It’s playful, daring, festive and girly.  I love the idea of a suit, instead of a dress or skirt; it’s effortlessly sophisticated and comfortable, too.

Leandra’s not the only woman wearing suits, either. While made popular by Katharine Hepburn and Yves Saint Laurent, the suit is making its way back into our wardrobes. Miu Miu featured trouser suits in their Fall/Winter collection. Amanda Seyfried and Emma Stone are two of the many celebrities to have worn them on the red carpet.

I’m in love with Emma Stone in this Gucci pantsuit.

There’s just something about a blazer or tuxedo jacket, cigarette trousers and heels that I just love. Check out BP’s Faux Leather Collar BlazerStoosh Pindot Stud Blazer, and the Living Doll Sequin Blazer.

I think this sequin blazer is especially cool. With a topknot and red lipstick, it would be killer.

So this holiday, Leandra and I challenge you to adopt the pantsuit…or if you’re not quite up for it, a blazer.  While some might argue suits should be left for the men, I say they are empowering and stylish on women, too.
