Suited Separates

Here is my interpretation of the following fall fashion trend:

tuxedo / black velvet / floppy bowties / grandfather watch / houndstooth / scarf looped around collar and tied into a bow / slim cut trousers / velvet loafers / brogues /oxfords / pencil skirts / suit jackets / full suits / menswear inspired silk scarf / suede / color blocking / crewneck sweater worn with shirt / envelope clutch /















{Ink Blue Ankle Length Pintuck Trousers ~ Jones New York / Ivory Polka Dot Blouse ~ Style & Co, via Macy's / Dark Khaki Stretch Blazer ~ Thrifted / Bronze Pumps ~ Nine West / Wooden and Navy Lucite Bangles ~ Thrifted / Handbag ~ Fendi Spy}

I realized this week that I don’t own a full suit. I have way too many blazers, and way too many pairs of pants, but they are not complete suits. And I am OK with that. I think there is something fresh about separates that can be pieced together to create a pulled together suited look.

These ink blue trousers were unexpected when choosing a pair to go with this camel blazer, but I love the contrast. And I have always loved a great khaki and navy combination.

I can't believe how much of an Indian Summer we are having.  I was actually HOT in this outfit, walking to and from the train.  It's supposed to be drastically cooler this weekend, so no complaining from me! ;)

How will you be wearing the menswear trend this season?


P.S. Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my party dress post.  I was so excited about the dress and I am glad you loved it as much as I did. :)

xoxo, thanks for reading!

  3. Go Lexy!!! I like the idea of non-traditional suits. I found me two cute bow ties and those will be my keys to adding some menswear looks to my Fall wardrobe. I'm looking forward to it.

  6. Love the fit...Lol!!! Lexy you have inspired me so much with the blazers. I have gotten 3 blazers in the last 2 weeks. But I did Thrift one for $4.99. You are so right about finding great blazers at the thrift store, however, with my size being a XS-S, it's hard to find those that will fit. Thanks again for your inspiration!!
