Even though I’m not a tomboy, I really feel comfortable in suiting. It makes me feel like I’m in the 70s rocking a bad ass YSL Le Smoking Jacket. I’m not, but I will be one day — I hope! It’s been a bit colder, so I gave my suiting a winter makeover by picking up separates in wool.
You guys know I’m a sucker for monochrome and anything gray, so I went for a head-to-toe gray “suit.” Now, I don’t have a professional job, but if I did have to go to an office everyday, I would be living in this right about now (given that the sweater is appropriate, I know some work places can be very strict.) I wanted the statement pieces — blazer + trousers — to be darker than my sweater to break up the look slightly and I went with a v-neck sweater to show a little skin.
The pants are rad, you guys know plaid pants are a favorite of mine. The subtle print on these is divine and I can see myself wearing them all season long. One rule I follow when it comes to monochromatic dressing is to break it up somehow. Usually for me, it’s the shoe and here, I chose burgundy. This palette is so yummy I could wear it day-in and day-out! Shop my look below, or use separates in your own closet to create a similar look. Let me know what you think!
