Of all the borrowed-from-the-boys staples, it’s the suit that’s experienced something of a renaissance with street-style vixens- venturing into the more-often menswear associated style. The androgynous look can often seem too masculine, but did you notice? All of these women have long, flowing hair – its something G talked about when she first made the chop to her own locks. Having to dress with a more ladylike attitude in mind. But thats not to say a short-haired female can’t pull off a suit !

In this case, all these looks are worn with a boyish charm to them : flats, trainers, an athletic-ease about their approach to the traditionally uptight suit. Don’t they seem so casual, and confident, and cool?! I think its the subtle contrasts each applied : all buttoned up but with a little ankle, or neutral tones all-over and a pale pink hit of color on the shoe.
I really love a suit – its just so smart and think Caroline, Keisha, Natasha and Sarah are owning it. Its the personality of the woman wearing the suit you notice, and not the goosebumps she might have been sporting while wearing a dress….
