Share

We love an LBD as much as the next girl, but let’s face it—sometimes the old faithful gets a tad boring. And though we’ll always appreciate an über-feminine confection when feeling romantic, there are moments that simply call for something different. Enter: a menswear-inspired ensemble, which remains a timeless choice on account of its decided versatility. Though a suit by basic definition can seem rudimentary, there are a variety of styling tricks and design variations that elevate it into unexpected territory. Here, eight times celebs made a case for ditching the girly dress to borrow from the boys instead.
