It’s been around for years; hence why they call it a trend. As seen above, silver screen siren and style icon of the Dirty 30’s, Marlene Dietrich, sports a mens-inspired pant suit by Coco Chanel. A testament that a woman can do anything a man can. Sometimes better – like looking superbly sophisticated and stunningly chic in a suit.
Today, it’s worn with feminine of splashes of colour and patterned bow and neck ties, as demonstrated below – a three-piece version with either a knit or vest.
PS – GREAT glasses. Does anyone know who this lovely lady is?
This trend also works with the pants slim and cropped accompanied by brogues; or long, wide-legged tuxedo-esque perfection with heels to boot. The pants – with pockets, always, for the laissez-faire attitude. The blazer – slim in the sleeve and the length falling just below the hips. Perfectly executed by ADR below, as always.
Now I know what I’ll be wearing to my next interview!
