Okay, let’s cut to the chase. It’s 2019, you’re your own woman — you can wear whatever you want. As long as you don’t roll up to your best friend’s wedding in a white, bridal gown, you’re probably going to be fine. So why not toy with the idea of switching out the faithful frock for a chic suit at your next occasion? Just for something a bit different.
‘What’s in it for me?’ you might ask? Well. Lots of things. Here’s just a few:
1. You will emanate the badass, I-am-who-I-am attitude of Cate Blanchett
Show up in a tux and a crisp shirt and you’ve already won. Dial the masculine dressing up with a patent brogue and sleek hair, or opt for a party-ready heel. Or don’t, whatever.
2. You can divide and conquer
The glory of a suit is that there’s (typically) two parts. Wear your new checked blazer to work, or to date night, and when you inevitably get doused in compliments, you can say “Thanks! It’s part of a suit. And it has pockets!”
3. The visual appeal of the jumpsuit without getting naked in the toilet
I mean, we’ve all been there. Particularly on those chilly days, there’s nothing fun about having to completely strip out of an all-in-one jumpsuit to use the bathroom. Take advantage of the mobility of pants on the dance floor and show off your moves without having to pay the jumpsuit’s ultimate price.
