Adding color, texture and movement to pant suits are great ways to balance their structural elements.
You know what’s so funny… I owned ZERO suits when I was at my corporate job. Now being in the creative field, I have a small collection. For some reason, I never equated suits to office wear only. To me, the idea of wearing suits incorporated elements of creativity leaving so much room for personal style. The one thing I learned about pant suits… adding color is so important.
In general, I find that pant suits can feel a bit stiff. To add movement and interest, I love pairing them with whimsical details. A voluminous ruffled blouse or a bold pussy bow shirt. Strong complementary elements that would balance the structured look of pant suits.
Another way to offset that stiffness is using color. A black pant suit feels and looks very different from a pink or a light blue color one. For color considerations, I personally love rose (this rose pink suit is currently 60% off!). It’s beautiful all season round, flattering on virtually all skin tones, and has a powerful yet gentle presence.
Another reason why I’m so attached to suits is that they act as separates, which opens up different pairings throughout the year. For example, I can restyle this blazer in the summertime with shorts or I can pair these tailored pants with a red chunky sweater for spring. They’re perfect with pumps, kitten heels for more comfort, and sneakers for a casual look.
I hope you enjoy this pairing and thank you so much for reading!
