How To Wear A Full-On Suit

The season of disco-era dresses and velvet-everything has come to end but there’s a whole new batch of chic ideas to get excited about this month. One of our favorite January dressing rituals: skipping the mini dresses and skirts in favor of full-on menswear looks fit for library-like bars, cozy restaurants and old world art houses. In search of the perfect Katharine Hepburn-inspired outfit yourself? We love this plaid ensemble snapped by street style photographer (and TZR favorite) Vanessa Jackman during fashion week.

Plaid Blazer

L.A.M.B., $440

This double breasted wool blazer is the epitome of menswear chic. Wear it with boyfriend jeans, strappy heels and matte red lipstick for an alternative look.

White Shirt

Uniqlo, $30

Every woman needs a crisp white button-down in her wardrobe. This affordable option from Japanese brand Uniqlo is cut in a trim (but not tight) silhouette that really flatters.

Plaid Trousers

L.A.M.B., $298

The boxy, slightly slouchy cut of these pants creates just the right look with oversized cashmere sweaters, silk button-downs as well as the cool coordinating blazer.

Patent Brogues

Asos, $64

For an irreverent and ultra-chic twist pair the suit with high-shine brogues or oxford flats. Bare ankles are ideal for pulling off the ensemble!

Tortoise Sunglasses

Prada, $310

The perfect finishing touch to a serious and sophisticated look: movie star-worthy sunglasses that add just the right amount of drama.

Structured Tote

Loeffler Randall, $395

While this structured leather tote is super-practical (hel-lo double straps) the punk-inspired detailing gives it necessary edge.
