Fresh Updates for the Ladies’ Power Suit

If there’s one place to wear a suit, it’s certainly at the office. If you work in a conservative work place, there are a lot of ways to wear a suit to bring some modern style to your look that is still completely appropriate. And even if you work in a more creative environment, there are great options that are stylish and effortless looking this season. It doesn’t need to be all about a navy or black jacket and pants. Mix-and-match a great jacket with a solid pair of pants or play up some of the softer colors of the season. The different silhouettes this season – from soft and fluid to structured and streamlined, give us a lot of wonderful options. And here, we’ve picked some of the best.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for after 5 suit picks for a variety of occasions. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Theory always does a great job with contemporary work wear, and they’ve really outdone themselves this season. Everything about this suit (each piece sold separately, though the ‘shop it’ button) is timeless and endlessly chic. The fluid stretch material will keep you looking crisp and fresh all day. The trouser has a modern wide leg and single pleat that is so flattering, with flats or heels. These pieces are just as good separately as they are together, so don’t forget to mix-and-match with other items in your wardrobe, from neutrals to pop colors. If your size is already sold out, try Theory’s site – free shipping and returns - for the jacket or the pants.

The ponte fabric of this Hugo Boss modern fitting suit (sold as separates through the ‘shop it’ button) creates sleek lines and sharp finishes, but feels so comfortable. The color is so rich and refined, it can be worn with a neutral top or add some color like a pastel silk blouse. The open front will work with a crewneck, v-neck or button down. If you keep your outfit neutral, any pop color pair of pumps will look seasonally appropriate. Nude pumps are timeless and always right.

With Hugo Boss being such a great work wear resource, using a modern fit that looks great on most everyone and is so comfortable for a long day at the office, here’s another one. This beautiful seagreen gives a simple single button jacket a wonderful update for the season. While you can wear the jacket with black pants, we like it best with the coordinating pants for a sleek suit look. The fabric is a mélange, so you can wear a black or white blouse with it to really let the color stand on its own.

Elie Tahari has taken the ever-important athletic inspirations of the season and interpreted them for an oh-so appropriate work look. A touch of leather trim at the baseball neckline offsets the professional black-and-grey tweed panels, this is an ideal suit for a creative work environment. The skirt is sold separately (also through the ‘shop it’ button) and has an exposed back zip that just lends to the modern style. Black open toe heels complete the look effortlessly.

This linen/cotton Theory skirt suit is so lady-like. It’s not only great for work, but also ideal for a lovely family dinner or brunch – it just depends what you choose to pair it with. The jacket hits at the perfect place on the hip and is a heavier weight than your average linen giving it a luxe feel and finish. For work, Theory’s off-white wide leg pants tie back to the jacket’s trim perfectly. For something a little dressier, it is shown with a dress that actually has a leather bodice and skirt made of the same canvas. The a-line looks great on curvy and straighter ladies, alike. While it is an above-the-knee dress, it’s not as short on most ladies as it is on this model, so most of us can wear it without a thought. (Like the jacket, the dress can be purchased through the ‘shop it’ button.)

Lafayette 148 New York’s sophisticated high quality pieces are always worth the investment. This jacket with mint and black striations give it a cheerful spring feel that also works with black. What’s better than that? The funnel neck, combined with the one-button closure and easy, modern Lafayette fit (in 0-16) is flattering on all body types – it creates a beautiful nip at the waist. Wear it with black or white pants  and Lafayette’s mint silk shell to bring out the accent color in the jacket.

With white being the color of the season, it’s no surprise Vince has come up with one of our favorite white jackets. It’s made of a lightweight boucle that creates beautiful texture without any bulk. The collarless neckline and ribbon-trimmed button placket is clean and modern – which is just what we love about Vince’s aesthetic. It hits just below the waist and has Vince’s typical loose, contemporary fit. Because of the length, it can be worn over a dress just as easily as a blouse with your favorite pants with a crew, scoop, or split neckline.

Rag & Bone’s urban, contemporary look is effortlessly tailored and sophisticated. This jacket fits the bill with it’s modern stand-up notched collar and single button closure – great for women of all bust sizes. For an edgier look, we love this vest, very on trend for the season. Both pair effortlessly with the coordinating pants or your favorite pair of dark or white jeans. We love the sophisticated dove grey for spring – it can be worn with any color, so you’ll get a lot of wear out of it. The jacket, vest, and pants do come in a gorgeous deep navy though, too.

J.Crew - Single-button Drapey Vest
J.Crew offers a great interpretation of the vest replacing the blazer for a polished and stylish suit alternative. This fluid single-button vest has a loose, easy fit which works beautifully with the drapey fabric. And here's where it gets interesting. In black, they offer a fluid pair of coordinating pants that will create a chic work look by just adding a silk or cotton simple sleeveless top. In the beautiful color light mauve shown, you can pair it with pleated Bermuda shorts in the same fabric and color. We love these modern fitting easy shorts for everyone - they are long enough for all ladies to give this look a try. We only suggest the shorts if you work in a very creative environment, but they will turn this vest into a great night out option. It looks great with a simple pair of sandals or a pretty closed flat.

Nanette Lepore’s lady-like feel is on full display with this corded knit blazer. The cotton material has a bit of stretch so it is comfortable and flattering – slimming at the waist and flaring out to enhance any figure, in its easier contemporary fit. In sleek white with black trim, it looks great with your favorite black pencil skirt or any black trousers. You can go straight out to dinner in this one.
