Types and Options
Skirts usually come with a slit or a thin pleat, extending a few inches above the seam. These add a comfort element to those tight skirts. For a professional attire, the length of skirts must not be more than 1 - 2 inches above your knees. While you take trials of the skirt, remember to check the length by sitting down.
You can choose from flared, boot-cut, skinny slacks, to wide leg patterns of the suit pants. Petite women should not wear flared or boot cut pants, as these will make them look shorter. Flat front pants are best to be picked while choosing suits for plus size women. A pleated front will give a bulky look.
Check out which one you want to opt for. For adding that trendy element, you can have a piece with a line of buttons on the sleeves. You can choose to have designer suits with patterned seams for the lapel. Tuxedos are also a great style to go in for to make a classy and elegant style statement.
Colors and Patterns
Apart from the regular plain pattern, you can opt to have a slightly designer piece with a patterned fabric. Pinstripe, sharkskin, houndstooth are perfect patterns. You can also go in for a mix and match. Make sure you do not have two patterns in one suit. You can simply pair a plain bottom with a patterned jacket.
Choose the Right Material
No matter which pattern and style you choose, the right material will make your suit look perfect and fit rightly. Don't go for cheap ones made from the fabric that wrinkles and attracts lint very easily. You can opt for blends of cottons, wool, rayon, polyester, and jersey.
The sleeves must be of a length so that they fall 5 inches above the tip of your thumb, and reveal at least ¼ of the cuff of your shirt. The pants must fall on your shoes. The length of the jacket can be a few inches above your hips. A well-tailored suit is sure to give you the ultimate look
