To keep your skirt suit in style, pick one with simple, classic lines that can be updated with a blouse, pin, belt or scarf. Single breasted jackets are the most universally flattering and are more likely to stay in style. Avoid obvious trends, like ruffled skirts and asymmetrical cuts. They will only serve to date a suit. Choose a suit in a timeless color. Grey, red, heather green, winter white and of course, black are all great choices. For fashion versatility and longevity, choose suits with a jacket and skirt in the same color and fabric. Dont be afraid of patterns. Pinstripes of all sizes, windowpane plaids, and bold Channel-inspired tweeds have been in style for years and are likely to remain in.
Most importantly, the perfect suit must have a perfect fit. For petites, the challenge often lies in finding a suit with the right combination of lengths in the skirt, jacket and sleeves. Accessories hold the key to keeping your suit in style, season after season. To keep your suit looking fresh and fashion forward this season, choose great accessories in the latest trends. Camisoles and soft, feminine cardigans are particularly hot this year and look great, especially when paired with a tailored suit.
And finally, dont forget the impact shoes and handbags can have on your look. A stylish pair of sling-backs or trendy sandals paired with a modern purse can be the very pieces to tie your look together and add a breath of fresh air to your appearance. And a skirted suit offers the perfect opportunity to show off the latest shoe, from a fashionable pair of kitten heels to the latest high heel pumps.
By making sure of a perfect fit and drawing on the latest trends for accessories, your skirted suit will remain in fashion year after year.
