The Other Type Of Suit

Keeping It Comfortable And Work Appropriate

Getting Ready Time: 23 minutes. Easy, breathy.

What do you do if the entire fashion world decided to borrow from the boys? It seems like magazines left us no other choice, but to spend all of our waking hours in a bloody suit. They are everywhere, and everyone has one. But what do you do, if you are just not into the idea of living your whole life in rigid tailoring? And yes, I know, I am contradicting the points made in my previous post, but seriously, who wants to spend 24/7 wearing wool and tweed?! Sure, wearing a masculine, oversized suit feels fantastic, as long as it’s from time to time. Wearing a suit can make you feel confident, strong and ready to brave the world come Monday. But after five days of dealing with a constant stream of emails, deadlines and idiots wouldn’t you want something a little more relaxed and cuddly to wear?

Personally, I think that sometimes there is nothing better than a pair of soft, slouchy pants to get you through these last couple of days at work. And if it so happens that they come with a matching cardigan, making the entire ensemble into a semi-appropriate work attire? Well, that’s even better.

I love Zara’s take on the Chanel suit. It’s soft, flattering and super simple to style. Oh, and take note (!) it also comes in black.
