Suits me: Styling a slouchy striped suit with a sheer top and platform heels

As promised, dear readers…my “holiday suit” in its entirety!!

I’m not sure that I’d have dared to wear something this masculine even as little as a year ago; but we all know that personal style is an ever-evolving beast…and this striped jacket and trousers combo appealed to me the moment I spotted it at H&M about a month ago.

Not ever having worked in a traditional office environment, a suit is truly foreign territory for me; but this one is about as far from “constricting” (always my biggest beef when it comes to anything tailored) as it gets!!  The fit is slouchy – borderline oversized – and when you pair the pieces with a sheer floral top like I did today??  Well, let’s just say there’s no way I’m being mistaken for a corporate stiff!!  ðŸ˜‰

I’ve already done the pants as a separate in my “Resolution” post, and you’re bound to see the jacket worn “unmatched” too…if we can ever get back to more temperate weather in Vancouver.  We had another dump of snow on New Year’s Eve, so that nasty white stuff will be showing up here on the blog for a good while yet!!
