TYPES OF PANTSUIT LOOKS
Pyjama cutCasual straight-leg or loose-fit trousers, boxy longline top. Thanks to Hillary Clinton, this style has become the standard when anyone says “pantsuit”. Once upon a time you could get these suits in a pattern, but now it’s about solid colours.
Flicks and flaresPleated trousers with a slight bootleg, fitted jacket with a flare to the cuff and possibly the waist, giving a peplum effect. For this look, think Victoria Beckham or Celine Dion. You will see a lot of ladies striding around shiny commercial skyscrapers. This suit is the uniform of sexy power-dressing.
Sneaky culottesMid- or full-length culottes, open blazer. Suits don’t have to be stuffy. You can blend your bohemian sentiments with your corporate job and glide through the office with this flowy, semi-casual look.
Fully fittedSlim or skinny fit trousers, longer fitted buttoned-up blazer. Work a slight military vibe. The precision of the lines, the perfectly aligned buttons. It might even be double-breasted. This conservative look can be accessorised for power-dressing or comfort.
