Pantsuits are making a comeback.
They were first introduced in the 1920’s when a small group of women decided to take on the masculine outfit and make it their own. As the decades passed, more and more designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, introduced pantsuits into their designs. But even with all the progressive developments in the fashion industry, it wasn’t until 1993 that women were even allowed to wear pants on the United States Senate floor.
Flash forward to 2017. After infatuating over the pantsuit mania in the 80’s, I am beyond stoked that I get to try my hand at this trend. I also can not wait to give my dresses and skirts a break, have another excuse as to why I don’t need to shave my legs and not have to think about how to match my tops to my bottoms before my coffee in the mornings because PANTSUITS ARE MAKING A COMEBACK.
When I found this set by Elie Tahari I knew that it was finally my turn to have a pantsuit moment. I love the floral detailing that gives it a feminine vibe. The color is also neutral enough to sneak into the office. For this look, I paired it with a black tank, black bag and black heels because I wanted the suit to do all the talking. I could also see myself pairing it with a graphic t-shirt and sneakers.
The possibilities are endless.
Thank you fashion gods.
Stay vigorous babes.
