Suits were never my thing, until I came across a New Orleans-based influencer who knows a thing or two about slaying a 2-piece. I’ve always felt like unless I’m in the middle of a business meeting, or in a professional setting, suits had no place in my wardrobe. While observing Tracey Wiley’s Instagram feed, I learned that a suit can be wore in for just about every mood.
There is something very powerful about a woman in a suit. Not only is it a staple in a professional woman’s wardrobe, when worn correctly, you embody a sense of authority and respect. From the red carpet to the boardroom, women have dominated the power suit, making it a sexy, professional and stylish alternative to a dress.
For this week’s “3 Ways to Wear It,” I wanted to dissect the various ways that you can make a suit your own. In addition to Tracey, I linked up with Jamilyn of Style Over Size to show their unique ways of rocking a 2-piece. If you’re looking for a little Inspo on how to pull the look together, check out 3 ways to style a suit.

I wanted to find a suit that captured my personality, so when I cam across this ASOS number, I was all over it. I originally purchased a neon green lace bralette, but opted for a simple black bustier top. I paired the look with transparent strap heels from Amazon, and an acrylic neon purse, also from Amazon.
If I ever have to wear a suit, I want it to be like this. Fun, bold, and comfortable. This was such a fun look to put together! You can follow more of my style diary on my Instagram page.

I bought this suit from a shop here in New Orleans called United Apparel Liquidators. It’s one of those hidden gems where you can find designer clothes for 70-90% off. My mom introduced me to this store when I was in highschool and I’ve been shopping there ever since. Now, I’m letting you in on my secret because why pay full price when you don’t have too?
