Try A Trend: Colored Suits
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

A well-fitted suit will never go out of style. The classic ensemble used to be  strictly for the fellas, but the look has since been established as a staple in the womenswear cannon.

But if you’re sitting out on the trend because you don’t want to rock dark colors in the summer– or you’re not into the white suit, fear not! There’s another alternative: the bold, bright, and colorful suit. Rihanna recently stepped out in London sporting a red and pink-trimmed number from Acne.

The look is relatively simple to achieve: just look for a well-fitted, ultra bright jacket and trousers and voila! You’ve got an instantly chic and fresh ‘fit.

Give your suit a summer edge by cuffing your pants, or lend some unconventional flavor with a body chain. Pair your suit with sky-high pumps, or if you can’t take the discomfort, do like Riri and complete your look with brogues or loafers.

Feeling adventurous? Take a page from June Ambrose‘s book and mix and match your pieces to create a colorblocked look.

Get inspired with these separates:

So what say you, Bombers? Think you’ll try a colored suit?

    Solange and tracee’s look are the only ones I see myself pulling off. If the pants are tapered at the end then the style should work for me

    Love Tracy Ellis ross look when I first saw it I jumped on it!! Ca-UTE!!!!

    @EntertainmentsFuture If you want an affordable colored suit, check out Express. Also, I found an Aqua bright blue suit (similar to the one Lala has on) in Bloomingdales for about $250 total. Not bad. Can’t wait to snap it for y’all!

    I love the color suits on everyone. This is new to the East Coast and Mid West, but years ago when I lived in Atlanta southerners wore colored suits all the time. It’s nice to see the embrace of color up north.

  11. Dobe says:

    Definitely a good look! You can’t go wrong, just please make sure the pieces fit well!

    Cute options, I still don’t know how I feel about this trend because it is bold but I think when done right it is a winner!

    Rihanna looks terrible! Whats with the Pee Wee Herman shoes?
    Solange & Tracy look super cute! LaLa gets an honorable mention because I love the blue & I’m glad she’s trying new things.
