When I competed in high school speech and debate, I always wore a lipstick-red business suit on the final day of competition. It was bold. It was confident. It said, “I will take your poorly constructed argument and run it through a wood chipper.”
I loved that suit. I still own it for sentimental reasons. But thanks to my affinity for donuts and the inevitable mid-20s metabolism crash, I couldn’t fit that skirt over my right thigh.
This leads me to today’s question, can the colored suit ever be revived? Or is it a trend that’s just too pageant girl, 90s TV-anchor reminiscent to make a comeback?
Maybe it’s my glass of rose talking or law school has warped my brain, but stay with me for a minute. With the right tailoring, understated accessories, and simple makeup, maybe these suits could work. Not for every day or for a very serious meeting, but just to change it up once in a while.
What do you ladies think?
