Ever since Yves Saint Laurent displayed his sexy rendition of the men’s classic suit designed and fitted for a woman, we have been grateful. Designers continue to feed our cravings for Fall 2009. The working woman will have plenty of day-to-night options, while the lady who lunches will out-dress all of her upper east side friends.
A straight cut version by Max Mara will compliment a stylish, political figure and a tighter version by Altuzarra will appeal to the younger, trendier clientele. No matter what age group, style, or event you may need to attend, the suit will take you there, ensuring that you arrive looking fantastic.
Better in leather? Max Mara offers a straight looking silhouette in a brown leather suit option.
Gorgeous in Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld knows how to cut a classic into an interesting shape with unexpected details.
Lavish in Lanvin, embroidered fabric, slim pencil skirt, and an over-sized blazer will suit any fabulous party or romantic rendezvous.
Dolce and Gabbana go with Alice in Wonderland-exaggerated shoulders. Shiny satin and detailed construction add a playful twist to a grown up look.
Soft and subtle, Carolina Herrera drapes a sleek blazer and slim fitting pants into an elegant suit.
Neutral colors will benefit from bold accessories, and a more vibrant print will look good in a slimmer skirt suit. Whatever look you choose, suits are a wardrobe must for fall.
