5 Reasons to Invest in a Pantsuit This Fall

The pantsuit is back, but not like you’ve ever seen it before. Now there are bigger pants, stronger colors and—dare we say it?—chicer silhouettes. Here’s a short list of how to look great in your matchy-matchy outfit, plus some high-low options of how to get the look.

1

LONG JACKET

It was true in the 70’s, and it’s true now: When your blazer stretches down to the bottom of your rear end, you can hide a multitude of sins.

CROPPED

Even if you’re wearing a pantsuit for international lawyering up (see: Amal Clooney), you can still modernize the look. Here, she works it with a shorter trouser and boy-cut blazer.

BRIGHT

In case you haven’t noticed, the bright pantsuit is getting major social media traction. It’s also hitting the bricks—along with other super-brights including purple and green—on early adopters outside the recent Euro fashion shows.

EVENING

Jennifer Aniston, trendsetter: She rocked the evening pantsuit last year at the Critic’s Choice Awards. It must be karma that everyone’s wearing it now.

5

WIDE LEGS

It’s more comfortable than those skinny jeans and has a fun ’80s vibe. Presenting, the wide-leg pantsuit, here on the Tibi runway.
