Are you a badass businesswoman? Do you also have a strong sartorial eye? Then you know the two-piece suit has gotten a bad rap for way too long. Fortunately, those '80s, synthetic, padded monstrosities don't even exist anymore (or so we hope). Hidden in plain sight at your average shopping mall or designer boutique are plenty of flattering, fashionable iterations to accommodate even the strictest of dress codes, and they won't force you to scrimp on style one bit. Seriously. Pants and skirts, classic and fashion-forward, whatever you fancy — so many options are available, and you don’t have to look too hard for them, either.
From go-to work brands like Ann Taylor, Theory, and Elie Tahari to more adventurous colors and prints courtesy of 3.1 Phillip Lim and Stella McCartney, the 19 styles ahead are sure to get you noticed at the office — and for the right reasons. No more HR nightmares or wardrobe disasters on our watch. We promise.
