Why Every Woman Should Have a Suit In Their Closet
I have always believed that success can easily be obtained if you believe in your goals, your possibilities, and most importantly yourself. When you look good, you feel good, and nothing says boss babe than a nice old fashioned suit. Now, sometimes people may assume that suits were only built for men, tailored to bring out the positives in their body. While that may have been the case in the past, now, women can successfully wear their own suits with pride as well. In my profession, I am constantly called to either meet with people, or conduct business propositions, and I always feel like the best version of myself when I bring out my handy dandy suit. I want you all to be successful in whatever path you choose to take therefore I am going to be listing my top tips on how to get the perfect suit for you.
Now you may not realize but a lot goes into picking out the proper suit. I am on the shorter side. Therefore, I need a suit that is tailored to my short frame. I want something to make me look powerful, out-spoken, and dominant and the best thing to do that is to make sure I'm not swallowed up in the material. This awesome Grey blazer and pants fit me perfectly and are perfect for women who are around my size 5'5. The choice of material and color are all very important when it comes to picking out the perfect suit. I like to think of colors that complement my skin, hair, and overall personality. We all know that I am a colorful person. However, I try to stay professional with a nice solid grey suit. I can add a bit of fun to the blouse underneath. Which is what I did with this colorful fusion of colors that you can see on my blouse that I got from J. Crew. (Sadly I couldn't find the same shirt but I know you could find something similar on the website).
It is also imperative to wear proper accessories when you getting ready to dress to impress. Personally, for this outfit, I kept it simple because my colors were so bold. I paired my shoe matching the shirt and kept that as my sole accessories. If you go for a more classic look a pair of pearls or costume jewelry can always be your best friend. I am going to show below a couple of my favorite suits and they're all under 100.00 at H&m!

Each of these suits listed above is perfect neutral beginning suits. Something that is classic and can be used for interviews, business meetings, or if you're looking to make yourself seem a bit more sophisticated within the office.

Blazin' in that Blazer
These are my blazin suits meant to add a bit of color to your life. These are perfect when you are stuck in a grey day maybe a bit down and you need to remind yourself of how amazing you are. Or maybe you're like me, and you like to be bold with your outfits, I think these are for you. Now, I'd do the opposite of what I stated before. For these, I'd make the blouse or undershirt more basic keeping it classy with either white or creme underneath. All of these amazing suits are linked and from Express.
