Navy Suit

navy suit for work office style blog

For working girls who wear suits on the daily, I know that it’s always SO refreshing to find a modern take on suiting classics.  This navy pants suit has all the requisite business formality, but with a slightly oversized-fitting blazer and track-style pants, it packs a sartorially relevant punch as well.

The perfect combination of formal and comfortable, the wool suit pants with grosgrain ribbon at the elastic waist transition beautifully from workweek to weekend.  I recently wore them sans suit jacket to Sunday brunch with this tank and these espadrille sandals (both are legit amazing and on major sale today!) and the pants looked as casual as can be.

I also have to mention the super lightweight seasonless wool of this suit, which not only has a beautiful drape, but also seems magically impervious to wrinkles.  These pictures were taken after a long day of meetings and hours at my desk, but you’d never know by the looks of the suit.

Since I now live and work in the more casual San Francisco startup world, I paired the suit with this favorite t-shirt and ankle strap sandals.  If you work in a conservative environment, I’d probably opt for classic heels or flats.

    Navy fits very well to you.

    Like also the accessories : sandals and glasses.

    But green handbag is unusual.

    I always love a cropped suit pant in lieu of any other. As a 20-something professional, I think it feels younger and more comfortable for my age. I like that the shoes you paired with it are sharp but NOT very high-heeled. And the olive green bag is a really cool touch!
