Statement Suiting

It is said that the suit makes the man. Apparently, as the uniform of the guys, I guess it does express their individual styles. Women, on the other hand, have much more options in terms of outfits. But a statement suiting is definitely one good way for women to be “interesting and creative”. The combo from Banana Republic clearly makes a statement in this case.

This bright blue suiting is not something you wear on a daily basis, but a great piece for a special occasion, especially when you are tired of dresses and still want to grasp people’s attention. And of course, you want the suiting to be the center of your outfit, so to pair it with a white shirt is the safest and best way.

For a suiting like this, you definitely want to make a strong presence. Nothing works better than black high heels to highlight your chic and powerful look. Well, the fedora is not really a necessity in this case. But as a big fun of fedoras, it’s just sort of my own way to “get swag”. As the finishing touch on the outfit, I wanted to spice things up a bit. The cat shape diamond brooch and the owl clutch just made my point.

英语里有种说法叫“The suit makes the man”。大意是说,一个男人是啥样儿的看他穿啥西服就知道,可见这个东西对男人的重要性。而对女性而言,在衣服的选择上实在是多出了千万种可能性,但不能否认,所谓的“statement suiting”也是女性彰显个性和穿搭创造力的一种非常有效的方式。

小明君以前就老说,对“statement clothes”真是翻译无力,在英文里有“statement shoes”、“statement coats”等等各种说法,大致就是想要表示,你的这件单品是非常有个性有特色的,可能标新立异,也可能只是非常吸睛,总之体现着你在这套穿搭上的一种“声明”、一种立场。自认中文良好的小明君实在没想出特别对应的中文,所以一直以“特色XX”的说法代替,今天我们也就说“特色西服套装”好了。如果有更好的说法,欢迎小伙伴们回复微信指教一二。

总之,今天我们要谈的“特色西服套装”不是日常生活每天上班都能穿的那种,而是或用色大胆、或图案条纹鲜明、或剪裁新奇……那些能够让你在特殊场合就算不袒胸露背还是一下就能集中众人焦点的西服套装。这种套装无论是参加趴梯、出席活动还是去约个会之类的,穿好了往往有奇效:不仅有女汉子般的帅气和洒脱,又添了几抹个性自信的性感,还一个劲儿地往外喷时髦感,比露胸器这一招儿高了好几个段位。不信你们也试试?

今天小明君的街拍选择是来自Banana Republic家的boyfriend style西服套装。蓝色真是我真爱来的,衣柜里快要有海洋的赶脚。这么艳的蓝色内搭白衬衫绝对是最保险最恰当的。当然,为了显得活泼一点,特意在领子上搭了猫猫别针。大家也可以试试搭领饰或领带之类的,应该也蛮有趣的。

这条西服裤子是九分裤的剪裁,正好给了秀脚踝的机会,不配高跟鞋绝对是没道理。带水台的好处是可以踩得更高一点,脚踝又显得无限拉长一些。因为想要显得有趣又有个性的主题,所以特意搭了这个猫头鹰造型的手包,颜色也比较协调。礼帽的话其实有没有都无所谓,我自己是礼帽粉儿来的,所以比较中意在造型上做这个考量,感觉更有个性一点。最后想说,西服扣儿别系上,敞着穿更有范儿呢~
