Women’s suiting has evolved tremendously over the past century. Legendary designers such as Coco Chanel and Yves St. Laurent laid the groundwork for many of the menswear-inspired looks that we still see today. From sophisticated tweed to tailored pantsuits, two-piece ensembles that evoke strength and confidence remain ubiquitous throughout the fashion world, proving that the trend is here to stay.

Ahead, we’re sharing our favourite power pieces expertly styled for the boardroom and beyond.

Modern Monochrome

Refreshing colour palettes guaranteed to brighten up your wardrobe are making a strong appearance this season. From vibrant yellows to soft pastels, shades reminiscent of citrus fruit and sugary icing are dominating the fashion scene in monochromatic pairings.

Perfect Remix

If you prefer to mix rather than match, you’re in luck thanks to the popularity of suiting separates. A winning combination will deliver an unexpected result and take you seamlessly from your morning meeting to your evening reservation.

Check Mate

Checks and plaids are having a major moment as well. Worn together or apart, structured pieces with feminine tailoring deliver a modern take on classic designs. If you haven’t sported this iconic pattern since the ‘90s, opt for a more subdued print, such as Glen plaid.

Avant Garden

So far, 2019 has shown that florals aren’t just reserved for blouses and dresses. Vintage-inspired blooms continue to appear on blazers, jackets and pants. The transeasonal nature of these botanical designs is quickly turning them into wardrobe heroes.

Great Lengths

There’s nothing like a knee-length redingote to elongate your silhouette. This design has existed in some form or another for centuries and is showing no signs of waning. As if you needed more proof that clean lines and minimalist details transcend time, this closet essential is working overtime this season.

From the undeniably genius blend of squeaky cheese curds, fries & gravy to the breathtakingly beautiful European-inspired architecture, it’s easy for this city girl to find plenty to love in the place she is proud to call home. When she is not enjoying time with her family & seriously contemplating whether to order sushi or pizza while at home with her husband & daughter, Sarah is likely pushing herself to the limit through intense boxing workouts & trying her very hardest not to jaywalk.
