For some, the phrase “work wardrobe” conjures up dreary visions of humdrum blazers and ill-fitting trousers. Well, upwardly mobile friends, we’ve got some good news for you: Thanks to a razor-sharp focus on suits both on the runways and the streets, we’re seeing a new crop that are anything but boring.
On recent runways, we saw the rise of the super-chic suit in various incarnations. From slim-cut menswear-inspired versions at Saint Laurent to the vibrant printed matching jackets and pants at Prada, the suit was interpreted in a number of inspiring ways. It’s also worth noting that the rise of the fabulously slouchy shorts-suit is hitting its stride, with designers like Alexander Wang and Michael Kors making the summer staple exponentially more stylish.
Luckily, the modern suiting trend has been interpreted in a number of accessible ways and at various price points, as evidenced by the looks we’ve included in the gallery above.
So even if they don’t score you that (obviously deserved!) raise, these new suits are guaranteed to earn you a major style promotion wherever you go.
