A TumbleLog of practical and appropriate styles women are wearing – inspiration.
It’s time that we be able to wear dressy suits – something that we look good in and enhances our womyness without being sexualized.
This isn’t a suit, but the idea behind the blouse is great.
The belt and the frill are perfect details…
Bottega Veneta- Spring 2010: believe it or not, it’s a dress. and it’s hot. and if it were black, blue, brown or something in that color family, I’d like for it to be called a female suit.
This one is just gorgeous. It’d be great for a variety of body shapes, heights and in various colors.
Arianna Huffington OWNS her suits. A silk finished blouse with a wool blazer gives a fine, classy finish.
Sarah Brown also looking fantastic in her dress suit. It’s a unique form of a one piece dress and blazer-like combination. I love it!
Condoleezaa Rice looking fantastic in her dress suit. Very original, very classic.
Joyce Brown shows us how to use color!
A good-fitting suit with bold color looks better than the ordinary any day!
If you’ve got the physique, this sort of sleek one piece is the way to go! And a pop of color doesn’t hurt either.
This is the more standard suited look; it’s never as fun and never feels as fun, but sometimes it’s what women feel like they have to do. Sweeny makes the look work for her by wearing a necklace and donning a soft, silky blouse in place of the regular cotton button-down. Awesome with a capital A.
I love thicker threads in a suit; it’s perfect for winter, so why don’t designers use it more often for young professionals’ suits??
I love how the fabric of this dress is chic while sturdy enough to look sleek and professional. It also wraps beautifully around her shoulders so that it’s not too emasculating.
Again, the never failing dress comes into play as Anne Sweeny’s on the carpet with Disney stars.
This is a very simple, easy look. It’s a no-brainer. Pin-stripe for the vertical, height added effect and a soft color with a necklace that proclaims: (PWF!) Powerful While Female
Find a nice dress, throw a blazer on top: DONE
I’m not a major fan of the purple, but the green and peach suits really are beautiful. The green is a very posh, tweed-like executive feel while the peach is a softer, simpler yet elegant design that I think would work for most body types.
Disregarding the strange hem of the skirt, the weight of the material and the practicality of it for curvy women is great. The belt accentuates the female figure without it looking hypersexualized.
This suit is interesting because Michelle wears it with a red-statement belt, which I think works well, and a high-neck, turtle-neck-like blouse which I think is fantastic. More combinations of comfortable, chic turtlenecks should be worn with suits in the winters.
This collar-less nude suit is beautifully fitted and looks very comfortable and definitely professional
I’m in love with this jacket. The deep red tone, the boldness of the buttons and the practicality of it are exactly what one would look for in a perfect jacket. It also looks beautifully tailored to Geun-hye Park.
This piece avoids dealing with a collar by having a very intentional one that works more like a outerwear than a typical blazer. While it looks a bit more closed off than I think one would want to be, it does have a very commanding allure. The color is questionable but Melinda Gates is wearing it so that commands respect regardless.
Straight pant slacks with a blazer; I love that the pants accomodate her curves without it looking uncomfortably tight.
Loving how the glow and viscosity of Melinda’s blazer is on par with Bill’s. Every woman’s suit should look stellar next to a guy’s.
Cotton suits in a hundred different colors – it’s not okay anymore. No one should have to do this to pass for professionalism. Especially when the fit isn’t fab! In comes Veni Vici…
Respect! In a bold red and patterned blazer over a plain, black blouse and inverted-patterned skirt.
We love this dress because it’s more slimming and would work great for those who are more straight and less curvy. It gives you form without looking too tight. Perfect!
This dress looks a lot of accommodating to curves and imperfections which we love because it means less time thinking about how you look and more time doing awesome things.
One of the greatest joys in life is simply looking fierce – because when you’re dressed up, it’s all business
The audacity of elegant fabric by Armani – it’s stunning! And absolutely enviable.
Black on black isn’t supposed to look great, but here, it does.
Valentino Fall 2013. Being professional doesn’t have to mean looking like a guy.
Hugo women’s suiting green. If you’ve ever felt a Hugo suit, it feels like top notch quality and when you put it on, it slides on like 3rd base to home on a softball field.
