Red Trouser Suit

Since I just turned a year older last week (yikes!), I thought of doing a post about “work-appropriate” investment pieces for this age, nay decade. I’m not revealing the exact number though, haha! I’m talking about that “discerning stage” in life where the job is expected to be going full steam ahead and so the clothes should get an upgrade too. Target mission: sophisticated working woman. So ladies, may I introduce to you the trouser suit? ;-)

Trouser suits are a great classic. I remember wishlist-ing for a printed pair in my other blog. Back then, the matching coordinates trend was too strong and surprisingly the game is still on 'til now. :) But just like my coordinating set post here, the pair of blazer and pants shown below is another by-product of, again there's that word, magically coordinating themselves. What's the diff from the previous post? Well, here I'm using pieces from the same brand so maybe the designers thought of creating the latter with the previous one in mind? Like meant to be pieces? Haha! Who knows? :P

A trouser suit is composed of as the name suggests, a trouser and a matching coat or jacket. The joy in experimenting with these pieces is the diversity of prints you can include for the inner top. You can go for prints, colorblocking or play with textures. I'm talking about a basic colored set that is, like red. So why red? Well it's not just for the birth month, but it is such a standout color. It just really commands attention while still being considered a neutral in the corporate world. :) P.S. For additional styling tip, you can also go for no top at all as seen in Rachel McAdams here. But of course, it is applicable only for post-work parties. Haha! :P
