Love some of those suits! Always wanted wanted to be more of a business women to have a reason to wear more of them...not that you need to be a business women to wear a suit, but ya know what I mean. Lovely post!

M said...

I normally don;t like suits, but it's hard to resist that red little Chanel number! The D&G floral two-piece is wonderful as well.


Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Oh I love a well tailored suit!! Personally, prefer something very simple, a stylish slightly understated suit that hugs a frame in all the right places and can be dressed up or down. Love those pictured in numbers 1, 3 and 4, love the whole Michal Kors ansemble - great shoes to go with this suit! The preen suit is also real pretty :)

Beth Connolly said...

The Preen is amazing.

Bloc de Moda said...

Elegantes! se complementan divinos!

beso, Lore

Dream Sequins said...

Seeing that Preen number made me want to roll out the 80s style Armani suit from the closet. :)

Michael St. James said...

Love the Donna Karan and Etro looks, but that BV bag stole the show!

Grace said...

The Preen one is gorgoues. I love the slouch fit with the sheer undertank.

Love Grace.

Unknown said...

You will never know how much I love suits and what a difficult task it is to find "the one" perfect suit! My choice would be the suit by Oscar de la Renta, but I also would not mind few others. :-)

Laura Trevey said...

the metallic tweed is killer!!


Mimi said...

Very great post! I love how all these suits are so fun yet still professional looking.

daisychain said...

I'm in love with the Anna Sui at the top!

Hunters Glory said...

Aris (1st photo)
Pamella Roland
and me being of the male species, well, the Preen right below it is very elegant in it's appearance are my top 3.

Guhreat ppost CC!

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Happy sweet tuesday, CC!

I´m honestly not a fan of suits as I have always the fear they are not comfortable enough to wear during the day. But for the Chanel... too gorgeous and tres chic stylish!

Have a beautiful day ahead!!!

BB said...

That first Akris suit literally took my breath away!

Now I just have to figure out where and why I need a suit and strut it out - soon!


Leah said...

Sassy indeed... I didn't find any boring piece.

Suzanne said...

Can't till I'm a laywer ;)


The Pocket Stylist said...

Love the Antonio Berardi
I have missed you. I will be back a again.


Very chic and office ready! I always want to wear stuff like this, but never have anywhere to wear it. Beautiful though. I love a skirt suit set. xoxo


COCAMIA said...

I love suits for women! So many options, textures and colors! It makes it possible for every woman to wear a suit! Love Bottega Veneta!!!

Polished Sense said...

I'm loving the CS grey one and the Donna Karen suit. That color is gorge! Great picks from the other designers too. Have a fabulous day!


Dania Padron said...

The Michael Kors suit had me at "hello". Anyone could wear that. Chic and modern. It looks great enough to wear just to look good. No office setting necessary.

Stéphanie said...

So elegant ! I love everything !

Fargerike Dagny said...

Love the Pamela Roland suit!!

WendyB said...

Having worked in a lot of very corporate environments, I love a sexy suit. Kept all my old ones too.

Susan said...

oh I love them all, especially the one with the big bow! I love elegant pieces, however I have been really fed up with office clothing lately. I think I spent too much time at the office :))
have a sweet day, darling CC.

lorenabr said...

Oh dear, I'm obsessed with suits love them like crazy almost all:)

stilettolover91 said...

Amazing post!!! They are all fabulous!!


Mai said...

Love the Anna Sui suit!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

In general I like mixing things up but a Chanel tweed suit would be excessively lovely. The Dolce & Gabbana is ever so pretty too.

Andy Morales said...

I love the freedom of fashion in the sense that you can take a blazer, skirt, and slacks...throw it all in a "design blender" with prints, augmentations, various line details...and come up with an infinite amount of configurations. It was great seeing photos of all those lovely ensembles side-by-side. In that format it really gives one an appreciation for the multitude of arrangements a simple suit can render.

Jessica said...

Some great looks! Makes me want to throw away every boring traditional interview suit in my closet. I don't think I'd dread dressing up for client meetings if I had a single suit from this group.


Marian said...

darling what a gorge selection! the slouchy cut ones like Loewe, stella mccartney are my faves!
big kiss

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, blushing colours and corsets... So looking forward to spring! Sabine x

Grace said...

I like the collarless suits Coco Chanel would wear. I guess my favorite would have to be the Monique Lhuillier, because of how it added a more..I guess, playful, edge to it.

Elaine said...

I was always against suits but this has certianly changed my mind.


Roxy Teacups and Couture said...

fantastic selection!

Sierra said...

What wonderful suits CC! Love the color variety and all of the colors of cream I see.

Anonymous said...

Love these, spring suits are so cute. I love going to church on Easter and seeing all the girls int heir adorable, fitted, fab suits! I wanna get one this year. But I know I will wear a little Betty Draper sundress like always :)

Anonymous said...

Adore this look, Chanel, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs and the Vivianne Westwood Red Label are fabulous...as usual.


LPC said...

One can never have too many suits...

Jessica said...

Very inspired CC! Aren't you ready for spring! Did you catch Costume National's awesome Leather Short Suit last fashion week in Paris?

Nubia Mejia said...

My favourite is the Chanel.

Happy week

Elizabeth Marie said...

Ohhhh a red suit. Nobody would mess with me!

T said...

Loved the Etro and Badgley. And well, when does Chanel ever get it wrong? Lovelovelove!

pretty*pink*rat said...

That silver Giles Deacon, and white Marc Jacobs, NEED! I really need to add more business wear to my wardrobe, but sexy looks like this!

Imogen said...

I think we will be seeing a lot more of this trend in the near future. I quite like the first picture and the bright pink one near the end.

Anonymous said...

The Antonio Berardi is great! I also love seeing some strong shoulders mixed in there! I lastly love the hot pink suit AMAZING!


Champagne Macarons said...

I ♥ Antonio Berardi's corset and drape skirt in the first row, Francesco Scognamiglio, and I love, love, love Monique Lhuillier's skirt suit!! I also like the brooch on the Oscar de La Renta pant suit

Cloudia said...

Westwood Red gets my vote, Carrie

Aloha, Friend!

Where do I start? The cropped/rolled up pants are so interesting. I am going to have to work that look soon. Love the rose suit. That pink/red number is dynamite and look so great on that model. Nice selection CC.

MizzJ said...

Gorgeous picks as always CC. For real life, I would have to go with the sophisticated corporate look of Michael Kors, but I have a soft spot for that lovely corset from Antonio Berardi (the model is freaky though!!)
