Matchy-matchy, the pantsuit rules


Upper left and lower right from J.Crew; Upper right, Valentino; Lower left, Miu Miu

There are a plethora of matching tops and bottoms in the Fall collections. Miuccia Prada brought back the traditional pantsuit (jacket & trousers), but I prefer a matching tunic and pant; best example is the bright blue one from her Miu Miu show. I also love the J. Crew coordinating printed foulard pieces. And the Valentino dress over a matching pant is great too.

A pantsuit is a simple silhouette and such an easy way to dress. Whichever way you choose to put this look together, I think this is a trend with staying power.

  • Love the long clean sillhouette. Can you translate that everyday look for us in a skirt keeping it casual and relaxed yet dressed?

  • Love the pant suit trend, as someone who works in engineering field, 100% of my work wardrobe consist of pant suits. Although I love JCrew’s matching print pants and top, I don’t think it translates well into real life, it looks like too much print.

  • I’m happy to see the pant suit in all forms come back. Pants are just so practical for working women. With a coordinated top, whether tunic or jacket, they should always be considered fashionable and not just a trend.

  • I really like this trend, too. It’s such an elegant and versatile silhouette.

  • I too love a matchy/monochromatic look, especially the tunic or a dress over pants look. It’s a super chic way to camouflage a midsection problem. Plus you don’t have to worry about panty lines. Perfection!

  • Love this look & can’t wait till we get a J Crew store in London – coming soon!
