The Power Suit Is Back, and These Celebs Are Proof

Coordinating suits aren’t just for high-profile jobs anymore. An outfit choice that used to lack personality is now brimming with fun colors and prints and people are actually wearing them on the weekend (gasp!). Here are five celebrities we’re using as inspiration for their reintroduction into our spring outfit rotation.

This Unexpected New Jumpsuit Trend Is Taking Spring by Storm

This powder pink suit is one of many styles Blake wore on her A Simple Favor press tour. It’s proof that you don’t need to wear a dress to look fancy.

Get the look: A.L.C. pants ($445); A.L.C. jacket ($695)

Question: How do you wear the neon trend to work? Here’s your answer. Up the ante on a traditional suit by pairing it with an electric green turtleneck like Tracee. 

Get the look: Helmut Lang turtleneck ($221); Boss trousers ($278); Boss suit jacket ($595)

Yes, spring has its fair share of bold fashion trends (ahem, neon), but head-to-toe tan is just as “in.” Case in point: Olivia Palermo above.

Get the look: Madewell tee ($15); Chelsea28 pants ($79); Chelsea28 blazer ($109)

How does a supermodel do a power suit? With a graphic print, a cinched belt and a whole lot of attitude.

A pinstripe suit looks powerful, but paired with a crisp white tee and white pointed-toe ankle booties, it’s more fashion-forward. 

Get the look: Halogen tee ($29); Calvin Klein booties ($134); Theory pants ($221); Theory blazer ($341)
