Even if you’re wearing a pantsuit for international lawyering up (see: Amal Clooney), you can still modernize the look. Here, she works it with a shorter trouser and boy-cut blazer.

In case you haven’t noticed, the bright pantsuit is getting major social media traction. It’s also hitting the bricks—along with other super-brights including purple and green—on early adopters outside the recent Euro fashion shows.

Wide Legs

It’s more comfortable than those skinny jeans and has a fun ’80s vibe. Presenting, the wide-leg pantsuit, here on the Tibi runway.
