It is possible to stand out from the crowd by creating a style that is personal and make you feel good and confident. Here is some advice I usually give my clients.
Here are 4 different ways to give your basic suit some personality:
- Mix fabrics: pick a blazer with different color and material (wool, chambray, leather, velvet corduroy...) from your bottom, and pair it with a silk blouse. It will create contrast and embellish your silhouette.
- Accessorize: one single accessory can make the difference! Pay attention to quality and remember that "less is more".

- Layer: as shown here below with a printed blouse and a plain color suit.
- Add color: it's fine to wear neutrals but give your suit a "chic with a twist" touch by picking one color and showing it in different hues. (for instance in the photo below with red, see the shirt + collar + blazer + shoes)
And you? Do you accessorize, layer, add color or mix different fabrics? How do you upgrade your suit? Share your thoughts!
