How To Actually Look Cool In A Suit

If the phrase ‘business suit’ conjures visions of boxy shoulders and pleated slacks à la Melanie Griffith in Working Girl, we totally understand. Office-appropriate separates are tricky to pull off but are a non-negotiable for those who work in a corporate setting. Which is why Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s recent airport ensemble caught our attention. The style star opted for a classic black blazer-and-trouser combo over a sleek gray tee, but the genius is in the details. The tee (which could easily be replaced with a polished white blouse), is pristine and of good quality, the blazer is tailored to perfection and the wide-legged pants feature an on-trend sports-inspired stripe for a dash of personality. Finished with monochromatic accessories—an oversize menswear watch and glossy black sunnies—and the resulting look is modern not stuffy and worthy of emulating, stat. Just be sure you promptly arrive wherever you are going—running late doesn’t vibe well with this bossy ensemble.
