How to Wear a Pant Suit (Tips for Petites and All)


express

The pant suit has and will continue to be one of the hottest trends for 2014, to some of you working gals, a pant suit is already an essential but this is a different type of pant suit; It's not navy or black, it's not necessarily made up of a jacket and slacks. This suit is fun, trendy, eye-catching, and exciting. I can go on and on about this trend, instead you could check out my Pant Suit inspiration board HERE...you're welcome!

The most exciting factor of this new take on suits is undoubtedly the array of prints, which can be a bit challenging to wear, so here are some tips to pull off your printed separates or whatever pant suit you're currently coveting.


  • Take a tip from the boys: Every man knows that the best way to wear a suit is to have it tailored, fortunately for us ladies, most suit separates already come with stitching and patterns suitable for female curves. Find a blazer that takes in at the waist and pants that hug your shape (hug, not suffocate)
  • Color and Print: Go for neutral or dark monochromatic palettes. If you're rocking a large print, make sure it lays on a dark background (i.e. Pink flowers on a navy canvas). A safe bet is to go for delicate prints in neutral colors, such as black and white polka dot.
  • ALWAYS wear with heels, unless you're over 5'7" then you can rock that Grace Kelly weekend crop pants look. 
  • Accessories: Pair with ultra feminine details to downplay the menswear factor. Think statement necklaces and colorful lips.
  • If your suit is bright, pair it with nudes or whites.

Una de las tendecias con más furor de este año 2014 ha sido y seguira siendo esa de el conjunto/traje de pantalon para mujeres. Pero este traje no es de cortes o colores antiquados. Estos trajes son de estampados y cortes super chic. La verdad que puedo hablarles hasta el cansancio sobre estos trajes pero mejor les muestro mi board de trajes en Pinterest AQUI
Si tienes dudas o te sientes un poco insegura al usar este tipo de traje, aqui te dejo unos consejitos.
  • Acceptale un consejito a los chicos: Todo hombre sabe que la mejor manera de usar un traje es llevandolo a una modista antes de ponertelo. Afortunadamente, la mayoria de los trajes de mujer ya vienen adaptados a las curvas femeninas, entonces busca un blazer tallado a la cintura y que abraze tus piernas (abraze no ahogue) 
  • Opta for colores y estampados neutrales o monocromos. Si quieres llevar un estampado de colores alegres, fijate que el estampado este en un fondo neutral ( flores fucsias en fondo negro). La manera de garantizar que el estampado sea alagador es optar por estampados pequenos y neutrales (lunares negros o blancos)
  • Siempre ponte tacones!
  • Usa accesorios super femeninos para disminuir el efecto masculino de el traje. Ponte un collar llamativo o colorete de colores vivos. 
  • Si tu traje es de un color fuerte, pontelo con prendas color piel.
