Get it together with our top 12 his and hers spring suits. By Christene Barberich
There is something undeniably comforting about the return of the Suit. Perhaps it's not odd at all that with an economy in crisis and a history-altering election on the way, guys and girls across the board would reach for a fashion statement that speaks volumes about looking good and getting it together.
And the fact that spring's versions have piqued our interest makes perfect sense: They transcend old-school notions that suits have to be serious, expensive, and occasion-appropriate. Instead, spring's suits are the other side of that: light, spontaneous, accessible, and way more personalized than your old board-meeting 2-piecer. From the coolest khaki version (Rag & Bone, we applaud you) to Jenni Kayne's short set (we want it!) to even the return of a little Crocket from Miami Vice (Filippa K can pull it off), these perfect pairs are sure to take the guesswork out of the dress work this spring.
