It’s incredible how a perfectly tailored suit can turn our look into a polished one in just a heart beat, but how can we style this staple in a fashion forward manner?! One of the easiest ways to dressing up a power suit is by pairing it with a fitted white button down shirt. But since I’m not into fitted shirts, I had to opt for an oversize style with long cuffs. If you love these shirts like I do, but you can’t find any of them on the market, then look for a basic white button down shirt and size it up two or three times. It will work like a charm! Could you guess mine was size 40 and not 34 ? So what else should we do to step up our tailored suit? Pair it with unexpected shoes and accessories. Made mine work with one of the biggest trends of the moment: lace up corsets.
Before trying out corsets, you should have in mind that they can be a little uncomfortable, so opt for one in a soft fabric which also comes with a lace up detail instead of buttons or zippers. The advantage of the lace up ones is that you get to decide on how tight or loose you want them. Tied mine to the max just to be sure I won’t be overindulging on ice cream and got into these white fishnet socks I’ve been hunting for ages. Unexpected shoes and small on trend accessories made the outfit look fashion forward. It was fun mixing timeless pieces with highly popular ones. What do you think of the over all outfit? xx
