5 Ways to Style a Power Suit This Holiday Season

From retro 80s shoulder pad styles at Marc Jacobs, to holographic and shimmery twists at Balmain, Fall 2018 truly is the Season of the Suit. If you’re tired of holiday cliches à la velvet or lace frocks, why not channel your inner Phoebe Philo or Hilary Clinton and switch things up with a power suit as your go-to party look?

From businesswoman plaid to eclectic jacquard, we’ve dismantled some of our favourite street style suit looks, to reinvigorate your wardrobe this holiday season. 

 

À la Française

Pair a bold red suit with a striped tee to channel effortlessly chic French style. Accessorize with a complementary neck scarf, for a touch of elegance. Don’t forget red lipstick, a timeless addition to any look.

Fashion Forward

A bright suit in eye-popping makes for the perfect way to sport this trend. Pair the wide leg pant look with a skinny heeled boot, and wear the jacket over a lacy turtleneck, for added glamour.

Eclectic

Keep accessories simple while wearing an eclectic colourful suit. Pair a peppy pattern with a classic white blouse, strappy heels and au natural makeup, so it stands out with no distractions.

Wild Side

Test out an animal print set for a fun look during the cold winter days. Pair it with combat boots for an edgy twist, and extend the funkiness into your eyeware choice, with heart-shaped or cat eye sunglasses.

Office Appropriate

Fashion and business meet through a chic plaid suit. Wear this style with a red turtleneck, and pair it with statement hoops, to make for an office-appropriate party look.
