Women’s clothing is always interesting and suits are no exception. They are smart, clean-lined, adjustable, and go anywhere. They don’t define the wearer, but can help define the event they are worn to. They go well to work, meetings, lunch, parties, dinner, dancing, visiting, and special events.
What’s Old is New Again
Wearing a pantsuit has been popular for so many years it’s hard to remember just when they become a great focus for dress-savvy women. Throughout the sixties they helped define the business woman; the strong, in-charge leader of business and industry. In the seventies pantsuits and dress suits were worn regularly by principals, teachers, government workers, office personnel, accountants, lawyers, judges, and doctors. They became the new comfortable attire for women.
The 80’s Was a Great Times for Suits
During the 80’s, pantsuits, dress suits, and skirt suits were just as popular as dresses by themselves were. It meant that women could spruce up the dress, especially the A-line dress, to look even better. The suit included a nice blouse, perhaps a slim belt, and the main ingredient, the jacket. The jacket in most cases really defined the dress as a suit. It was versatile, easy to wear, went with almost any dress; could be worn all day or part of the day. It could transition into night time very easily. And it became acceptable as business attire for more than 95% of women around the world.
The business suit as women have come to know it has many dimensions and many uses. In fact, that’s the beauty of it. It can be presented in many arenas and still come out on top. Any woman wearing a pantsuit, dress suit, or skirt suit has the confidence that goes along with feeling great because they look great. The great thing is it doesn’t take away from any of the charm presented by just wearing a dress without a jacket. It becomes another complete outfit.
Being Able to Mix and Match Outfits Can Change the Game
The dress, pant, or skirt suit can be worn with a long jacket, mid-length jacket, or a short waist jacket. Either way, the original piece itself doesn’t get lost in translation — it’s still the main event. The jacket just adds a certain amount of clarity, class, and pizazz to the outfit. It becomes a new and different selection from the wardrobe. It brings a different take on separates. It also allows women to mix and match their wardrobe so much so that they are able to have what seems like more clothes to choose from. And, since they can mix and match the outfits, many different colors can be substituted.
A Well Stocked Closet is a Smart Idea Women’s clothing has become more advanced, more sophisticated over the past 20 years or so. The more accessible the outfits become, the more experimentation women have. From couture, to the local department stores, choosing what to wear and how to put outfits together on a daily basis is a pleasant experience for most. That’s why having a pantsuit, dress suit, or skirt suit in the wardrobe gives women more options, more ways to experiment with their attire, and more ways to accessorize.
Now that the wardrobe has been updated to include nice jackets, skirts, and pants that can be mixed and matched to make the selection even more inviting, it’s time to get more out of the closet. Most women enter this domain that has a variety of articles hanging up, or laying down just waiting on someone to select them. The good news is that as long as the selection includes a staple like a well-fitted jacket, a classic skirt or pants that every wardrobe should have, then a woman can be ready at a moment’s notice – for anything.
