OOH! I dare I dare! But, being that I only wear solid black, what ever will I do!? Hmmm. =) Guess I could "venture out" into a grey glen plaid or a houndstooth!

These patterned suits are super cool, but i think one has to be very brave & confident to wear them. I must say the Jil Sander is def my favourite!

i definitely wanna pull off the overall suit that stylishly. it's challenging and eye-capturing.

These are quite a statement and I think they can look fantastic if the look is pulled off correctly. There are some good examples here.

Maria said...

Patterns are tricky, So I'd rather stay with neutral :)

I do not own a single pantsuit, but if I were too it would have to have some crazy kooky print to stop the conformity of it all.

Love all of this...but, I'm not sure I'd ever wear it. Maybe I'm too shy? No...that's not it. Well, either way - once again you've enlightened me.

I love these... the Balmain is amazing. Nothing better than a printed suit to make a girl feel androgynously sexy.
