When our Real Style Magazine cover girl Anna Kendrick stepped out to an event recently in an effortless black menswear-inspired suit, we were surprised to see this usually super-feminine actress in such a slick look- and we loved it! Fall runways were awash with menswear-inspired pantsuits done in unexpected ways, like the clean and sporty 3.1 Phillip Lim look and the rich, decadent Miu Miu suit here.
Tips To Wear It
To wear a pantsuit without being stuffy, masculine, boring or too serious, we recommend these tips to rock the trend.
1. Fit first. Be sure your suit flatters your body with a fitted, slim pant, or if you are trying to high-waist, billowy pants, be sure your jacket is snug or even shrunken to balance the volume.
2. Add a spark. Your suit will benefit from the added interest of unique details like leather accents, a print, or a bold colour like red or blue.
3. Piece-Perfect. Accessorize your suit with pops of colour and sexy appeal through a bright-hued top underneath or sexy stilettos heels. As androgynous as your suit may be, the final touches should be pure woman.
