Perfectly Suited

I love a white suit on a woman. It is a modern look for work.It can also be very sexy for evening wear with the right heels and accessories. It can be paired with a camisole or worn without any top underneath by the very daring!

A) Cotton chino blazer $168.00
B) Martin chino suit trouser $78.00

When buying a suit, I find that it is best when you can buy the pieces seperately so that you can ensure that both the blazer and the trousers fit you properly. At the same time it is important to buy the pieces from the same store or brand to ensure that the colours are from the same dylot and that the materials are the same.

To get the maximum value out of your suit, wear the pieces seperately. Pair the blazer with jeans and flats for a more casual chic look.

A)Cotton chino blazer $168.00
B) Striped Tube Top $15.80
C) Seven Jeans Farrah Stretch Jean $209.00
D) Corso Como Jala Blue patent flats $130.00

Wear the trousers with a silk blouse and open toe d'orsay heels for a more dressy look.

A)Plunging Silk Halter Top $69.00
B)Martin chino suit trouser $78.00
C)Betsey Johnson Holden $162.00
D)Alfani "Genova" Metallic Clutch $88.00

Often times when you buy a pair of trousers, the pockets are sewn shut. I think that if you buy trousers with pockets instead of flat front ones, it is best to leave them sewn shut. I find that after putting your hands in the pockets for a while, they become stretched out and the pockets look very bulky on your hips.

A) Corset dress in solids $75.00
B) Cotton chino blazer $168.00
C) Necessary Objects™ High Waist Pencil Skirt $42.00
D) Martin chino suit short $68.00

The jacket is the most versatile part of the suit. I love wearing the jacket over a nice tailored dress with some mary janes for a work or afternoon lunch look. Sheath dresses are very conservative yet sexy. Also try experimenting with shorts and pencil skirts.

Cameron Diaz VS Model

Cameron Diaz wore this Christian Dior dress to the Mets Costume Institute Gala. She opted to pair the dress with turqouise jewellery. I think that the turquoise was a really good stylish idea, but the earrings were too much. They were too heavy. She should have done the necklace and a turqoise evening bag. I think she looked much better than the model, simply because she didn't wear the matching hat!

Rompers / Jumpsuits / Playsuits

A new style that I really love are rompers. They are extremely chic and they are the perfect party outfit. Personally I think they look best when worn with heels. I think this style is very sexy without showing off too much. For casual day wear I like the denim styles like the Applebottom romper (A).

A) Short All Jumper $51.00
B) JLO by Jennifer Lopez Sea Girt Halter Romper $79.00
C) Firetrap Hotpant Jumpsuit $128.70 Asos.comp,l
D) XOXO Twill Button-Front Romper
E) 7 For All Mankind® Sweetheart Stretch Denim Shortalls $185.00

Rompers would be flattering on most people. You dont need a perfect body- just some killer legs! I found th e the largest selection of rompers on The style pictured in (C) can easily transition from day to night. I would suggest also adding a belt to it for a finishing touch.
