It's the right choice for any season.

Perhaps we have Hillary Clinton to thank for the onslaught of pantsuits that hit stores late last year, and continued to appear on the blogosphere well into spring. While the bold, block-colored designs of winter brightened up the dull streets, it was the ‘80s-style, gray, checked power suits of mid-spring that really took off among the fashion set – thanks here is probably owed to the equally political Balenciaga FW17 menswear collection that riffed on the shoulder-padded, wide-legged cuts of the era. With the temperature rising, though, the pantsuits have been pushed to the back of the closet to make way for bathingsuits

Understandably, you don’t necessarily want to rock a full-length suit in the summertime, but the joy of a two-piece is just that: there are two parts that make the whole. We’ve restyled the separate components of one of our favorite trends from last season to create a couple of looks that are perfect for summer. 

Scroll down to check out how we've re-styled our favorite spring pantsuit to better suit the sunshine: 
Front Row Shop Wide Shoulder Blazer With Back Button - $94 and Cotton Suit Pants - $71

The Jacket

Balance out the boxiness of the blazer with a distressed denim mini and loose-fitting cami. Choose a creamy or pastel palette for your accessories that will pick out the warm tones of the fabric and lighten the look.

The Pants


A great advantage to this trend is that it comprises a slouchy pant – perfect for covering up without suffocating on a hot day. Knock back the business aesthetic with a bold graphic print and high-fashion details like a slim logo belt and big, hoop earrings that catch the summer sunshine.
