A good suit says “I don’t play”, but that’s not to say they can’t be fun or dare I say suitable for a walk around the neighborhood whilst we live out our best lives in quarantine.
I imagine that for a lot of us what comes to mind when we think of a suit is generally a pantsuit made of matching fabric. Well, that’s exactly what it is, a set of outer clothes made of the same fabric and designed to be worn together, typically consisting of a jacket and trousers or a jacket and skirt, but at Style Jelly we like to approach style a little differently, and a suit can be anything we want it be.
That being said, we’re going to try a little exercise. I want you to forget about what the actual definition of suit is and explore the possibility of what one can be. If you’re looking to spice things up a little, this is a great way to see how many suites you can create with pieces that are in your closet right now. Chances are high that what you come up with is going to be way more more fun and truer to you than the fast-fashion version everyone else will be wearing. Trust me.
I will be sharing all of my suited looks over on Instagram this week, leading up to a new IGTV on Friday where you will see how all of them came together. If you would like to join me just tag your photos with #stylejellysuitchallenge so I can see and share what you come up with.
Until then, here are some ideas to get your brains buzzing…Happy Styling!
Mix ‘n Match Sets
Think unlikely duo. When you take two pieces in completely different colors and/or patterns and you put them together to make a suit you’re bound to create magic.
The Short/Skirt Suit
A popular style this spring, because a boss babe should be able to dress like a boss year round. Wouldn’t you agree?
A Tonal Suituation
Adding a little dimension to your look, the tonal suit is similar to the Mix ‘n Match, but you pair pieces that are in the same color family to to create a full suit effect.
