Style File: Bold Suits

Does the thought of a suit bore you? Think again! Suits are making a seriously stylish comeback, from bright and bold colors to punchy patterns, this is a trend that we are eager to embrace. Try out this trend now by pairing a simple blouse or graphic tee with your blazer for a more casual look. Take this trend into spring by looking out for matching short suit sets in pastel hues!

Clockwise from top left:

Who knew a t-shirt could look so cool with a suit? This nerd-chic tee gives a fun edge to the metallic hued matching set. Try wearing a t-shirt in the same color family as your suit for a stylishly monochromatic outfit.

There is something so fresh about a clean and crisp white suit, even in colder weather. We love how Emily kept it simple with neutral accessories and clean makeup.

Cobalt blue is super hot right now. You certainly need guts to wear a bold suit in this hue, but when done well it looks fabulous. Miroslava’s white button up and clutch are the perfect compliments.

Leave it to Blair to pair the unexpected like a pro. Here she shows off how a printed suit can be taken up another style notch with the addition of a crisp camel poncho.

Liz added some comfort to her bright red suit by adding in a cozy graphic sweater. We love how she also mixed in a bright blue clutch and jazzy jewelry. Sometimes more is more, especially when it comes to this red-hot look.

    When it comes to buying a suit, the key is to look for top quality construction and timeless lines. My favorite brand for suits and blazers is Theory, for that reason. Their suits last for years.
