Averill said...

I love a great pantsuit and these are some wonderful options, CC! I must admit though that I'm not a huge fan of double-breasted -- not so flattering if you've got a larger bust!

Is it just me, picturing these with pencil skirts and attitude? Love the look, like it a little la vida dolce and hotter. Tailoring on the jackets so good - drapes and cut, fabulous.

Anna said...

So sophisticated! Sometimes I wish I had a job that required suiting just for that reason!

I'm loving everything Christian Siriano is doing lately. The pant suit he showed is smart without looking "corporate". I also love the Elie Tahari suit.

Sorry I haven't commented in a while. I've been "under the weather".

Wow amazing suits, hopefully I can look just as amazing when I get a job that requires such smart, amazing clothes! Hopefully...with a salary to match!

Hiya carrie :)
Great post as usual!
I was wondering, if you could find me a couture prom dress for under £100? I cant find one anywhere!

P.s, enter my giveaway!
Love, Ruth

Hunters Glory said...

The only thing wrong with the 'pant suit' is the name. It sounds so 70's,

We get the 'pant' part by now don't ya think?

Can we just drop the 'pant'?... and just say 'suit'?

Regardless, it needs a name makeover...

Good post cc!

Madiha said...

The Salvatore Ferragamo pantsuit reminds me of something Ali McGraw might've worn in Love Story.

tris1978ton said...

You know, I have never owned a pant suit before. My friend had one and she just loved that thing! We went on vacation together and I swear she wore it every other night when we went clubbing.
