The Classic Suit | Day to Night


When it comes to corporate workwear, there is nothing better than a classic suit. I absolutely love a good suit! It’s empowering. There shouldn’t be a feeling of stuffiness or overcompensation. The suit should exude confidence and give you that inner strength to take on anything that comes your way. They are also extremely versatile and can be worn in many instances; whether you are meeting with executives, having lunch with clients, or simply dressing for success. It also provides you the ability to incorporate the jacket into your wardrobe for after hours, giving you a professional and chic look all rolled into one. I love the timeless look of black and white when it comes to my suits. However, you can easily incorporate other bolder colors for your shirts and heels. Talbots has created a phenomenal collection of suit pieces that make it incredibly easy to find your next go-to suit and work pieces to match any occasion. The Talbots Work Shop has a variety of pieces to create the most classic look with matching pieces like the look I’m wearing today. They’ve also curated a collection of separates like this flutter-sleeved dress to create the perfect work wardrobe.

Today, I’m sharing two ways to wear a classic suit from day to night.




One of my favorite ways to incorporate my workwear pieces into my outfits for after work is with my jackets. As you know, I love blazers and try to wear them as much as possible regardless of the occasion. Matching your suit jacket with a pair of jeans is a simple, chic way to easily transition from day to night. You can either keep your heels or swap them out for a cute pair of flats. Adding in some jewelry and a scarf, particularly for the fall, will give you a complete look. I love all the options you have with your shirts when you are wearing a solid suit jacket. It brings into play so many colors and patterns. You really can’t go wrong particularly when you are pairing with your new favorite jeans like these.
