It’s been quite a while since I’ve worn a suit – years actually. Once upon a time they predominated my wardrobe – my uniform while a TV News anchor and reporter – but I replaced them long ago with separates and dresses and have never looked back. Until now. The put-together power suit has reemerged and it looks better than ever. I’m loving this refreshed version from J.Crew’s Italian stretch wool collection for its simplicity and easy elegance. Its clean lines and modern silhouette have me wondering how I ever could have turned my back on this closet staple.

A perfect fit for the professional look.. smart and strong..
Looks like it was made for you…..
There is just something powerful about wearing a well fitted suit. Not to mention what it does for ones confidence. This beauty is absolutely perfect on you. And I do love how you kept it simple, showing just how powerful of a statement one suit can really make. Although the heels and clutch were a wonderful addition.
Great look – timeless and classic. You wear it well!
You look so beautiful! It seems J.Crew made this suit especially for you! That clutch gives this outfit a special touch!
This is so chic! I love the blazer without anything underneath and the cropped pants. It’s such an updated take on a suit. I love the white heels and bag you picked too.

I love a great looking suit and this definitely qualifies. I really like the tailored skinny legs of the trousers and the fact you went without a top under your jacket. Hot!

There is nothing better than a great fitting suit and J. Crew does them so well! This suit looks beautiful on you and love how you paired it with the white pumps.

So polished, lady! I love it!
Le Stylo Rouge
What a perfect suit, truly fits you beautifully!
Beautiful look, so chic and polished. Normally I am not a big fan of white shoes but it totally works here!
Mary! I love that you are JUST wearing the blazer–and only that. It’s so powerful and sexy all at once!
I’m kicking myself: I had this awesome black suit, and I don’t know where it is. It had a sheen to it. It was sleek like this one. I have no idea where it is–I don’t think I would have given it away. But where is it? I’ll be searching and let you know. Otherwise, it’s time for me to get another one.
You have inspired me.

Beautiful profession look, I love the clutch which gives it an edgy vibe!
Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week.
After 30 years of living in a suit in the corporate world…I’m still not ready for it…but, you are certainly convincing! Beautiful!
