Once reserved for political campaigns for its risk-averse, stuffy, no-nonsense competence, the pantsuit has evolved as a chic 9-to-5 staple that looks fresh, new and speaks to a woman’s femininity. 

Next to the dress, it is the epitome of one-and-done dressing that easily takes you from work to lunch to the theatre.

Here are three pantsuits to love and fresh ways to wear them.


The perfect all-rounder, a menswear-inspired black suit can be worn in endless ways—from the office to a night out. A sleek, slim-fit silhouette with a floor-grazing bootleg cut gives it a sassy, contemporary edge. Add a touch of femininity in the form of accessories, or wear casually over a slogan tee and pile on the jewellery.



A contemporary white suit exudes power, confidence, and sophistication. Layer over a silky camisole, tee, tailored shirt or nothing at all – bar jewels, of course. Team with sneakers or sandals by day or heels or pointy-toe flats for an extra dose of dressy, then sit back and let the compliments roll in.



Turn the patriarchy on its head with this fearless take on the classic tailored suit.  Sure, it’s technically a shirt but why not wear La DoubleJ’s shirt as a jacket?  Button it up or layer over a tee. Flex your fashion power, balancing out its flamboyant nature with understated jewellery pieces by Siobhan Way, raffia flats, and a statement bag.
