And Now, the Return of the Power Suit

If you thought the pantsuit was a relic of the past, think again. The tailored suit has yet again become a favorite among the fashion set, and this time we’re seeing it in a whole new light. From summery pastels to printed suits à la Harry Styles, pantsuit outfits are making their way onto our Instagram feeds, and we’re not one bit upset about it.

Don’t get us wrong—we love our midi skirts and dresses for a polished wardrobe, but there’s something about the 9-to-5 staple that’s got us taking another look. While the full suit ensemble has typically been associated with corporate America or politics, the 2018 iteration has been rather refreshing amid the sea of fashion, making it something to invest in if you haven’t already.

Need a little more convincing or some ideas on how to wear a pantsuit for your everyday look? Take a cue from our favorite fashion girls on how to wear this trend in and out of the office. Sleek and polished, you’ll want to wear a chic pantsuit for all your more formal occasions or for whenever you need a confidence boost.
