Sexy and chic usually aren’t words associated with a pantsuit. Pantsuits are more likely to be though of as last minute options when looking for a professional outfit. Dowdy and unattractive is the reputation pantsuits have earned over the years. However, it’s undeserved. Pantsuits can be sexy, flattering, and most of all-chic!
Pantsuits for women need to be separated from the idea of the male suit. Men’s suits can look fabulous on a man but look frumpy and old-fashioned on a woman. Women tend to look more like they are passing for a man than as a woman in suits. Women need that slightly feminine touch and figure flattering pieces to make a pantsuit work for a woman.
Fitted jackets, slim pants, and varying necklines are all features of an ideal women’s pantsuit. For most women, their shape on the top isn’t identical to their shape on the bottom. Pantsuits should cater to those needs only a woman could have with different pant widths and different jacket styles from elongated to tuxedo.
- For that extra feminine touch add some bold jewelry pieces. Also, don’t be afraid to mix it up. Wear a suit with a different colored jacket from the rest of the outfit. Or add an offbeat colored belt. Pantsuits have come a long way for women, an unconventional look from the start, but now women are finally coming into their own with the male dominated outfit. Don’t be afraid to embrace your masculine side-you can do it with a little bit of a woman’s touch.
