How to Style a Suit Without Looking Stiff, Corporate, or 80s

StyleCaster | Audree Lopez

Maybe we can thank Hillary Clinton, or just the infamous fashion cycle of the 80s, but suits are back, and they’re better than ever. We’ve witnessed the reintroduction of shoulder pads – which we’re surprisingly not as upset about as I anticipated – and all in all, suiting has come back stronger than ever before. To celebrate, we found 35 suits you’ll actually want to wear.

Go ahead and ditch your black interview suit (unless that’s your thing) and elevate your office suit look with fun patterns, bold colors, and, most importantly, accessories. Street-style stars are layering corsets over their suits, mixing and matching prints and colors, and taking the otherwise yawn-worthy ensemble to an entirely new level.

We want to be on that level, wearing a hot-pink embellished suit while fluffing up our shoulder pads. Scroll through the images below to see all of the looks. Happy suiting!
