Trend Alert : Pant Suits, For Both Summer & Winter 2012

They are smart, simple, adjustable, comfy and go anywhere. They go well to parties, dinner or dancing as well as work, meetings or lunch. They don’t define the wearer, but the style can help define the event they are worn to.
 Femininity shines through the fine lines and simple tailoring. To create the main image of a strong women a solidly cut suit is needed. It should be moderately strong, but at the same time beautiful and stylish for work related events in pastel colors.

The secret to keep it dainty and hot is indeed to pair it with high heels that would lengthen your figure adding a lean and balanced flair to your silhouette. Small clutches, being a logical final to complete the overall look.

Already there has been an influx of brights and pastels on the pants suit this season, but as the weather hots up its time to brace ourselves for the awesomeness of the printed pantsuit. Floral prints, sequins and paisley are all part of this new flattering suit craze. Not only do we have to negotiate the right print for our pants, there’s now the added trauma of pairing it with a matching jacket.

Think big and bold prints in tropical hues with tailored jackets that make the look head-to-toe botanical gardens. For fall, keep a look out for more geometric and arty graphics in jewel tones with less structure in the jacket.

Comfortable puckered fabric is a technical rayon/polyester/spandex blend that will not wrinkle, packs to almost nothing, and is great for travel. This lightweight cloth lets air pass through for coolness and comfort. Jacket features a front zipper, stand collar, stretch cuffs, two zippered front welt pockets, and elastic draw cords with toggles to adjust the hemline.

Collections presented by Elie Saab, Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo as well as Paul&Joe are considered some of the top notch sources of inspiration when it comes of adopting the minimalist pant suit trend. For spring look for florals from the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Peter Som and Mary Katrantzou.
