Slouchy is the new skinny this fall 2019. At least when it comes to suiting. Relaxed, loose, and languid suits made a welcome appearance on the fall 2019 runways—from The Row to Valentino, Oscar de la Renta to Alexander Wang—styled with everything from sneakers to chic bow blouses, with both light, dark, and colorful options on display. The comfortable-meets-sophisticated approach to suiting this season makes the two-piece a verifiably more approachable option to wear in and out of the office. No longer cornered into the category of corporate dressing, the beauty of this season’s slouchy suit is that it can be worn from morning to night, as eveningwear and casualwear, in the boardroom and at the bar.
Below, we’re rounding up the coolest slouchy suits on the market right now as well as tips on how to style them so you can easily nail one of the biggest trends of the season. This is the new power ensemble you’ll actually want to wear outside the office.
On the Runway
At Valentino, slouchy suits came in sumptuous creamy hues and were worn with polished pussy-bow blouses.
At Roksanda, relaxed suits were paired with flats to give the look a laid-back touch.
If you want to keep your loose and languid suit polished, add a waist-cinching belt as seen at Ermanno Scervino.
On the Street
A relaxed beige pantsuit is anything but boring when paired with a leopard-print shirt, gold-chain belt, and bold yellow shoes.
Play into the minimal nature of a pantsuit with crisp white loafers and pared-back, sleek accessories.
