suit yourself

1.) Blazer: Girl by Band of Outsiders; Skirt: Christopher Kane; 2.) Blazer: Topshop; Skirt: Topshop; 3.) Blazer: Preen; Pants: Preen; 4.) Giuseppe Zanotti; 5.) Dannijo

By now, you've probably noticed my little obsession with matching pant and skirt suits, either in bold colors (like this time or this time) or in statement prints (like this recent one). And I can't help it really, I just love that you can take something so polished and pulled together like a professional, work-appropriate suit and practically turn it on it's head with color or pattern choice.

Do you guys rock matchy-matchy suits? Would love to see how you style yours!

  6. I typically don't wear my suits together, always separately, but maybe if I had a brightly colored one, I'd be more apt to wear the pieces together.

  17. I have never worn a matchy suit ensemble but I would totally rock the middle look in navy with a black silk tank. Black/Blue is my go to combo.

  20. If I worked in an office, I would wear crazy bright pantsuits like that pink one all the time!

  21. I love the suit, so classic. Never tried a bright printed one, that may be a future option for me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That pink pantsuit is to die for! I love it together, but both of those pieces would work so fabulously as mix-and-match separates too.

  24. I am definitely into the matchy matchy if the suits are in a bright bold colour.....not if they are grey or brown. It's a full body statement piece!

  31. I tend to mix and match my suit components to give it a different look. I rarely wear matchy matchy suits these days. I love the bold colors and the cut of the pieces here.

  35. I don't often rock suits in any color other than black (I do have a light pink blazer, but no matching bottom), but I am head over heels for that bright pink one!!! The middle one is pretty good looking too. Hmmm...

  37. I love the pink set. I like the idea of a matching suit as long as you throw in a patterned blouse or crazy statement necklace. Your yellow and lace matching pieces were gorgeous!

  41. The great glory of travel, to me, is not just what I see that's new to me in countries visited, but that in almost every one of them I change from an outsider looking in to an insider looking out. Flights to Bogota
