Suit Up. Part 2.

Jessica Pearson from the TV series Suits is one fiesty lawyer. You do not want to get on her bad side, but one thing I would like to do is go to the store where she shops from. She has shown that women can be powerful and successful and most certainly dress the part. She proves that corporate wear does not have to be boring. In fact, every single one of her outfits is better than the next. While keeping her professional attire, she ensures her wardrobe is feminine simultaneously.

Since I am planning a career move, a new wardrobe is a must, and who else to better inspire myself from? I am a firm believer that no matter what clothes you wear you must stay true to yourself. Therefore I will need a closet full of  coporate attire with a little pazazz  Jessica’s classic yet chic looks are going to help guide me to a more professional, put-together wardrobe that is also fun! Let’s continue taking a look through her awesome closet.

A woman should be classy and sophisticated in the workplace, and that is exactly what Jessica Pearson successfully executes with this skirt suit, that has ruffling detailing at the waist area.

Lace is not uncommon in today’s fashion world, however, we don’t see it very often (or should I say often enough) around the office. The reason for that is probably because lace tends to be black, and that usually oozes a bit too much sex appeal. However, in this scene Jessica decided to wear a light grey lace and all of a sudden it is perfectly appropriate for the corporate world!

This color is all the rage this season. Anything plum related can be seen on the runways and for all the right reasons: it suits every skin tone and hair color! You can’t go wrong with this rich color for this cooler season, and Jessica shows us why!

You can’t do corporate without a couple of blazers in your closet. What I love about Jessica’s choices is that they are never your plain blazer. This lightly golden metallic blazer proves that you can be corporate looking and still maintain a little funk.

This long sleeve grey fitted dress with assymetrical neckline is perfect for the office. It is professional and extremely stylish all at once. Not to mention, classic. Something like this will never go out of style!

My absolute favroite Jessica Pearson blazer. It is edgy wish it’s severe shoulder pads and slight peplum accent at the waist. It can be worn in and out of the office and with pants as well as a dress.

Naturally this would be one of my favorite outfits of the series. Why you ask? Simple: it’s vibrant beautiful color. The office isn’t a place for you to hide away your personality. Don’t shy away from bold colors. If anything, it will grasp the attention of others in only a positive light.

Now that I have analyzed all of Jessica Pearson’s outfits, I am ready for my mini shopping spree of the perfect office wardrobe! Remember only a few key pieces are necessary to maintain a sophisticated and stylish look!

Suit Up.

 “Don’t dress for the job you have, but the job you want.” This is a saying that I have heard many times over, and after years of working in the Marketing industry, I find this to be more and more true. I have recently been given the opportunity to change jobs, and alongside many exciting and nervous thoughts rushing through my mind, one thing I know for sure is that I need a new wardrobe! The job I have currently I can get away with a more laid back wardrobe, however, the new company I will be working for is more corporate and I want to make sure I have a wardrobe that shows my professionalism and dedication. I am sure my boyfriend is reading this wide-eyed, frightened of the massive shopping spree I am planning. He needn’t worry though. The great thing about corporate attire is that you just need a few classic invesment pieces that you can mix and match and you’re set!

The show Suits is about lawyers, and as you can imagine, they are extremely well dressed. Jessica Pearson is a talented, big-shot lawyer who dresses the part in every episode. She proves that dressing corporate doesn’t have to be boring. A woman can be successful but look feminine all at once. She proves that woman can make it to the top, and look amazing while doing it. Let’s take a look at Jessica’s fierce outfits throughout the seasons.

I found it only suitable to start off the blog with your “typical” suit. Jessica looks extremely corporate with this 3-piece dark grey suit. However, her necklace definitely adds feminity to the whole look.

Office wear doesn’t only entail wearing suits on a daily basis. It is also very common to wear fitted (but not too fitted) dresses that usually are knee-length. This dress is not just a grey plain dress. The criss cross pattern in the front gives it that extra twist.

A taupe blazer is a wise investment to make simply because it can go with everything. In this scene, Jessica sported an entirely neutral palette look, with a cream top and black skirt, however this blazer can laso have been easilypaired with a fuscia pink shirt with navy pants (just giving an exmaple of many different options).

The LBD (Little Black Dress) isn’t only a must-have for a night out, but the right dress is also perfect for the office. It is subtle but forever classic. And don’t even get me started on that beautiful taupe purse. Great color for summer as well as winter.

An outfit like this screams out sophistication and power. This houndstooth patterned blazer will definitely catch the eye of everyone in your office. What I love about Jessica’s outfits is that there is always a slight twist to the typical office wear. Instead of sporting the classic buttoned down blouse, she wore a scoop neck grey shirt from under to make it different.

This is a difficult color to pull off, however, if you can, this blush pink is a great asset to any wardrobe. It is soft and elegant on your skin and rosy cheeks and lips are the perfect balance for that pop of color.

You cannot dress like a corporate business woman and not have an appropriate jacket to match. Jessica’s nicely fitted black coat with gorgeous neckline is professional and beautiful all at once.

Stay tuned for the continuation on Wednesday of how to pull off that sophisticated corpoate look like Jessica Pearson does so flawlessly!
