London Fashion Week is ending and New York Fashion Week was a couple of weeks away, but now we have had time to reflect on the suit trends this season. From bright colours to pastels to the classic black and white penguin-suit tuxedo, tailoring is ‘the thing’ this fashion season. Check out our best dressed ladies attending New York Fashion Week.

Blake Lively

Spotted 7th September! Blake Lively wears a sharp black tuxedo during New York Fashion week. Lively attends the Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary event at Bethesda Terrace, wearing a tuxedo jacket with pronounced buttons with a black-and-white polka dotted handkerchief tucked in one pocket.

Her waistcoat is white satiny fabric with textured detail with large buttons, tucked into the tuxedo trousers with the satin stripe down the leg. The trousers are high-waisted and slim fitting, elegant and flattering. Instead of a bow-tie, Lively simply wears a crisp white shirt.

Interestingly, her Christian Louboutin Pluminette pumps are a showstopper with their fishnet overlay, peep toe detail, pom-poms, and plumage. Her shoes seemed almost black and white check, adding a flirty and girly touch to the tuxedo look.

She even paired the look with a cane! Blake Lively’s best accessory is always her smile, but she wowed everyone with her enthusiasm, despite wearing simple makeup and loosely curled locks. No matter what, she’s glamourous and fresh. Which of Blake Lively’s suit looks do you like?

Mary Seng

A few days later, fashion blogger, Mary Seng, is seen outside the Michael Kors show during New York Fashion Week on 12th September. Seng wears a pretty-in-powder-pastel-pink pantsuit. The trousers are high-waisted and she accessorises the outfit with a simple, sleek brown handbag with a bronze clasp.

The pink jacket is single breasted with a notched collar; she wears a simple white shirt, off-white pointed toe stilettos, and a low messy bun. The look is simple yet elegant, letting the colour speak for it.

Bright colours in suiting have been prominent at London Fashion Week as well. Would you wear a bold colour suit to the office or an event?

Haddish wears a grey and pink single breasted checkered blazer with a satin pink shirt (with just the occasional hint of bra) and high-wasited dark washed flared jeans, impeccably fitted. She carries a brown leather satchel handbag and barely visible black platform toeless shoes.

Her look is definitely one that is great for a day or night out – or even casual Friday at the office. Haddish keeps her hair and makeup simple, but her confidence shines. Would you wear this look?
