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.
