Through the Seasons: Suit Up

25 Jul

In need of a suit?  If so – lucky you!  Thanks to numerous ready-to-wear designers, buying a suit is no longer a sentence into conformity.  Not to suggest that the chicness of a well-tailored, classic black suit in a high quality fabric is on the outs – but why not jazz it up a bit with something a little more inspire?  In reminiscing through seasons past – I tried to find options to “suit” a variety of tastes.  Whether you are a lover of color, prints, or a modern take on shape – here are a few inspirations for SUITING UP!

An off-white look is a nice alternative to classic black. The cape-like sleeves offer an additional element of style. John Richmond Spring 2012

Only Balmain could take their typical motorcycle jacket look and turn it into a sexy, yet very wearable suit. Balmain Spring 2012

For the VERY bold and beautiful. Sonia Rykiel Spring 2012

A bit of whimsy with a touch of sophistication.  Although…the hat is really not that “office friendly”.  Moschino Spring 2012

This could read “men’s pajamas” if not properly tailored – but suits with prints are certainly a current trend. Stella McCartney Spring 2012

Sleeveless in Suitville! Here is an alternative approach to the basic suit shape. Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2012

Metallic – why not? Chadwick Bell Fall 2012

This could go “part-time CLOWN” fast – so be sure you have the right body type and accessories to go with it. Duro Olowu Fall 2012

For the print lover. Derek Lam Fall 2012

Tired of the same old shape and color – this will certainly mix it up. Peter Som Fall 2012

What a great way to liven up a basic black look. Also perfect for “dirty hair” days when you need to wear a pony. Dion Lee Resort 2013

Casual Fridays? What could be more perfect than a denim suit? Gucci Resort 2013

How about a little color? Versace Resort 2013

Yigal Azrouel Resort 2013

A modern twist on a classic. Alexander McQueen Resort 2013

I am liking the idea of a printed tux for ladies…not so much for our counterparts though.  That just reads, “PIMP”.   Roberto Cavalli Resort 2013

Happy Suiting!

Through the Seasons: Florals

20 Jul

It seems that in the very fast paced world of today, some fashion trends come and go before they even hit the store shelves.   On the flip side, some looks seem to find a more permanent place in our hearts and on our runways.  I thought it might be fun to highlight some of these “trends with staying power” with a Through the Seasons Lookblog.

Up First: FLORALS – they seem to be having a moment in the sun…
