For many women, suits feel constricting and stuffy. But historically, they offered freedom and power—and controversy.
In the 19th century, European women wore tailored jackets with long skirts, called costumes, for activities such as riding, archery, and walking. Trendsetters adopted them for everyday wear, and by 1905, they were common suits for women.
In 1914, Coco Chanel designed her first suit—a fur-trimmed jacket with a matching ankle-length skirt.
In recent times a lot of women are joining in the art of ‘Power Dressing’. Wearing suits has become very popular among women especially those in Power. It symbolizes some form of authority. Some very popular women who contributed in making the wearing of suits popular are Hilary Clinton, Beyonce, Ellen DeGeneres, only to mention a few.
Apart from being a popular corporate outfit, Pant suits can be worn to a lot of other formal places too and even red carpet events.
Today I decided to style my black suit with some corporate look inspiration. Hence matching it with black pumps and a cute tote bag. This entire look is from my current collection at KASH Boutique.
