The look: feminine suits. Who’s wearing them: everyone! Not just for powerful business women and Hollywood premiers anymore, the femme suit is one of the hottest winter trends of the season. Whether casual and contemporary like Cameron Diaz, uber shiny and haut like Cate Blanchett’s or dressy and winter white like Katie and Nicole, the femme suit can be worn in a variety of ways and styles.
You don’t need to go out and buy a three piece tailored Chanel number to get this effect though; all you need are dress pants, a fitted jacket and a dressy top. Add heels, belt and a clutch and voila! Instant style. This season, anything goes from wide-legged “where did my feet go?” pants to skinny stovepipe and even boot cut styles. The overwhelming color theme of choice also seems to be black and white, making this the perfect look for almost any occasion.
