Want an option for this holiday season and beyond that is not the typical dress? Don't get me wrong, I love a good dress more than any other garment I wear! But sometimes it just feels right to break the mold and go for something fresh and chic and this season that would be… the cocktail suit!
Whether you mix a blazer with a skirt or pants there are countless ways to create the perfect look. Tuxedo style jackets or pants along with rich silk or velvet fabrics are some great examples of ways to rock this look. And don't feel like you have to go out and pick an exact set. Find a jacket and a pant or skirt that you love and mix them together. Club Monaco has some great options to create this look as does Vince and Alice and Olivia just to name a few. And as always you don't have to break your bank to get this trend with stores like Top Shop and Zara. All the clothing pieces I am wearing for this trend are from Zara, so it seriously can be done on a budget!
After the holidays mix the blazers with jeans for a night out or take this look to an after 5 event or a wedding.So these pieces can be versatile for you for all year.
For my outfit and the example of how you can wear this trend, I did the ribbed turleneck tank. This is a more causal look with the suit. But, if needed, you can absolutley add in a satin or velvet camisole underneath for that dressier feel!
At least once this season put the dress down and suit up!
I swapped out the blazer for this adorable white cape jacket, just to give it a different look!
