No matter what industry you're in, there's probably a time in your life that calls for wearing a suit. Whether you already own one or not, we're willing to bet that sometimes getting that dressed up can feel a bit stuffy. That's why we're bringing you a creative way to repurpose that suit for more casual styling.
This week we got inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow, who paired her look with a rather unexpected pair of shoes: sneakers. We're not comparing this to the way your dad thinks it's okay to wear running shoes with slacks. Rather, Paltrow wore a crisp pair of white Valentino kicks with slightly cropped pants and a double-breasted blazer. This balance of casual footwear with a modern suit made for something that still felt put together but not overly formal (and not at all dad-like). We'll definitely be wearing a similar look to work in the near future, and we're sure you'll find an occasion to try it out, too.
