It’s middle of the winter, the holidays are behind us, and spring is still out of reach—all which begs the question—what to wear? Before you go back to your basic boots and standard sweater-- give your look a little va-voom and slip into a sexy men’s inspired suit. In a sea of cocktail dresses, Jennifer Anniston wowed in her Dolce & Gabbana anything-but-androgynous two piece ensemble at the People’s Choice Awards last week—and the world took note. So whether you’re walking the red carpet, cozying up at a romantic dinner, or hitting the dance floor with your besties—before you grab that same old, same old—suit yourself in something fabulous and new. We hit the aisles and searched high and low for our top three picks—check ‘em out:
Great White. Bite off a little something fierce when you suit up in white. Tame the blinding effect by anchoring your separates with a pop of a print, or a hint of color. This sateen version is from Ann Taylor at Westside Pavilion ($169).
Nipped and Tucked. Choose shapes that define you. Suit jackets and pants can be square and slouchy—or fitted and ride your curves. Choose body skimming pieces that quietly cover you up, yet still scream siren. This cropped and tailored suit jacket is from BCBG at Westside Pavilion ($198).
Your Better Half. Make sure your look is bumpin’ from the waist down. A boot cut pant with a wide waistband, will make your legs look long and lean, while slimming the waistline. Pair them with heels to seal the deal. Express at The Oaks ($59.90) sells our all time favorite dress pants—the Editor.
What Lies Beneath. Counts! Why do a simple tank or cami, when you don’t have to. Choose a little leopard, a lot of shine, or just rock a deep v-neck let the plunging neckline speak volumes—just don’t do basic. This sequined tank is a worthy option—also from Express at The Oaks ($ 34.90).
