A Suitable Affair—The Pants Suit Trend How To Look Chic and Powerful

By Posted on 2 min read 780 views

The seventies trend is in full swing, with a fun boho chic aesthetic to quirky graphics, to wide legged trousers, to floppy hats, the look is every where. And one of the trends within in this trend—the pants suit is also having a moment. From the seventies era flared bottoms to straight cut suits, to peg legged cuts and printed pants suits, there’s a look to “suit” you. I love how blogger Samantha De Reviziis of the blog We Love Fur styled her orange Maz Mara suit. I personally do not wear fur and if you don’t as well, you can always replicate this look with a faux fur wrap. What a gorgeous color right? And doesn’t it look stunning on her? The suit is no longer available in orange but here is in red.



And if wide leg pants are not your thing, this look from Zara is just as polished but a bit more streamlined. I also like that the shorter tapered leg will show off your boots or shoes, be it zippered up booties like these or a pair of pumps this suit will allow your favorite accessory to take center stage.


If you really want to take it up a notch, then a pants suit in a striking print or a beautiful brocade like fabric will certainly fit the bill. This suit from the Swedish company Bally in this rich decadent purple color is a wonderful way to make a statement and still look like you mean business.


For those you that are a bit more quirky, this “pants suit” from the Red line from Valentino is a more modest yet equally chic way to do this famous two piece set. The shorter culotte cut bottoms are perfect for showing off a pair of textured tights and doing the seventies trend in a non over the top way.


For a more tailored look check out new suits from Top Shop. From checkers, to hounds tooth, to printed patterns these pants suits are an affordable way to look polished and sophisticated.


And come spring you can step out in one of these solid colored suits in an array of suitable bright colors that are perfect for the season. Seriously you will totally stop traffic in one of  these. So do you do suits? Or are they too stuffy for you? I would say we have come along way from the not so chic pants suit one future possible lady president is known for, and this is one trend that can do double duty and make a women look both chic and powerful.

    Outstanding fashion I do not have the height for these type of suit but if I did I will rock them.

    What beautiful suits. They have nice touches which elevate them about the norm (which I find boring, since I have to wear suits every day). I find these entrancing; thanks for introducing me to them.

    I think a well tailored suit in a fun color or print can be such a chic look for the ladies. I love that it offers the benefits of elongating the body line as well.

    I like the pants suit trend very much! These days I love wide-leg pants and really like the style of the orange suit in the first photo. Have a great week!

    Orange is a very interesting colour for a suit but I really like it on her, very stylish and she wears orange very well. I am more attracted towards the red suit but then again I wear red easily hence I might be a little biased. 😉

    I’m a total fan of suits, and when they come so elegant and gorgeous, I wouldn’t be able to refuse. Thanks for sharing.

    I am simply in love with a pant suit. I’ve always adored it and I think I will forever love it. I also love some of these styled pants suit outfits. They are just gorg Allie. I especially love the above orange look. Sophistication at it’s best.

    All of these looks gorgeous! I haven’t really tried a full suit but if they are making them this chic and colourful I might try one! Hugs!

    I’ve always liked trouser pants and pant suits. They can make one look so polished. I love the red, camel and pink one.

    I do ( do suits) but alas I have none so gorgeous as these! Fabulous choices, and beautifully put together . This looks like a magazine editorial, but with better choices. Love the brocade suit and the orange one with the fur. I do worry about walking in these pants in the city though…. I will have to be uncool and wear them a tad shorter, or go with tapered legs, or culottes.
    Happy week Allie!

    I’ve always been a huge fan of the pantsuit, but for a long while I preferred it tailored and slim fitted. This last season or so I’ve really embraced the oversized, boyish designs.

    Big YAY! To the woman suit! Love the orange one

    Love that red suit! I used to wear a suit when I worked as a pilot, so to me, wearing a suit feels like I’m wearing a uniform. It’s therefore only rarely that I wear a full suit, and I’ll often just stick to suit jackets instead:)

    These are all such fabulous options. I totally agree that Samantha pulls off the look so well! I would also opt for a faux wrap- there are so many good options these days!

    The Max Mara suit is totally up my alley. I love their tailoring, and I like a wider pant leg. That pretty Bally option looks fun too, though I can’t imagine myself wearing it. And I agree that any one of these can easily be carried through to next season. 🙂 It’s a good investment.
