I know it sounds weird to say, but I sometimes feel the most attractive when I am in a fully covered outfit. This past winter I literally lived in a black turtleneck, black leather skirt, black tights, and boots, and I gotta say- although no skin was exposed, I felt like a boss. The same goes for suits. I own a handful of suits from ELOQUII (their suits are the best!) and after an event last night where I wore the Beyonce inspired suit from the Apesh*t video, and felt like a true boss bitch, I was inspired to write today's post. Plus, I just got in photos from a session last week with Arielle *in* a brand new ELOQUII suit, so everything fell into place.
Last night's boss LEWK with friend Isoke Salaam PR:
At NYFW in February, suits were everywhere. Like, EVERYWHERE. I'm actually mad at myself for not wearing more suits during fashion week. Its a trend that is here, and one that is going to stay. I originally got hooked on suits last spring (also thanks to ELOQUII), with the lavender over-sized suit I wore on repeat. Since then, I have written many accolades on BITD about suits, and my love for them continues to grow (proof here and here).
I truly feel unstoppable in an amazing suit. Like no one can tell me no. I mean, would you say no to a woman on a mission in a fabulous suit? I didn't think so. I walk taller and feel like a badass confident chick in suits, and if you haven't tried wearing one yet in- or- out of the office, I think you're missing out. I also love that while suits are more covering, you can spice them up by wearing only a lacy bra or sheer top under the blazer for nights out! It's been my go-to lately!
Want to try a suit but don't know where to start? I've linked some of my favorite suits of the season all from ELOQUII below!
