A suit (that’s perfect for not work as it is for work!) trend that I’m loving this season (though I have to brag that I wore both of these outfits last year- ahead of the curve!) is a bustier or strapless top with a suit. It truly is the silhouette of the season. Aka this look is everywhere this season! Making it so easy to mix and match a top with a suit, but a set at every price point; and then mix and match all the pieces.
What I love about this silhouette is that it’s so chic and so versatile. Is there anything easier than a bustier or strapless top with a form of a suit? Could be pants and blazer, pants and a coat, perhaps just a strapless top with a skirt (or even shorts or capris!). This is so easy to make this silhouette your own, to style it in any which way which makes you feel most stylish and powerful. Yes, I wore these outfits- now known as the silhouette of the season- seasons ago, but I play on restyling these items in so many ways. This black top with a black midi skirt and black blazer. Grey bustier with grey knit skirts and boots. I have a great pair of grey wool trousers that would look great with either top. Or I may have to pair a blazer with this look:
The combinations with this fashion formula are endless. And chic. And perfect for work or play. The silhouette of the season? Why wouldn’t it be?
(Note: if a bustier or strapless top feels like a LOT for you, or you live in a climate where this look would still be too cold, this silhouette would look just as great layered over a turtleneck. In fact, these tops or bustiers layered over a knit dress or turtleneck is just another way to make this silhouette of the season your own, or reinterpret it!)
Are you into this silhouette of the season? I just can’t get enough of it! Below I’ve linked similar looks to not only these takes on the silhouette as well as my fave new offering, for take on this look. Mix. Match. Wear to work or parties. I’d love to hear how you’re styling the silhouette of the season!
