How 3 Chic Ladies Style The Modern Suit

These days, it's more likely that you rely on a beautiful pair of patterned trousers or a poppy-red blazer as your workplace staple, rather than the tweed skirt suit of your mother's era — and hallelujah for it! Just like our workplaces, our work clothes are much more creative, versatile, personality-driven, and powerful than what's considered traditional, these days. But still…how do the season's inspiring suit trends translate to real life?
Well, we tapped three stylish, successful NYC women who work in creative fields to find out how they wear the modern suit. From a mix-and-match peplum option to a hot lil' number Bianca Jagger would approve of, these women show us that they and their style couldn't possibly fit into a cubicle-shaped box.
