Printed Suits
How about going for a printed skirt suit? You think you can make that statement? Opt for stripes or hounds tooth to stay classic or experiment with other geometric and abstract prints. Though, the later will be less suited for work for many people. Also,  do not rule out the floral suits as well.

Faux two-piece suit
We have been noticing this trend catch up. Where your skirt suit appears to be a 2-piece one, it may or may not be 3-piece in real, the trend is to make it look like two. Take a cue from these ladies.

Sheer underneath
This one is bold and beautiful. A great look for the night; this is one way of doing the day to night outfit. You can wear a shirt for the day and replace with a lace or sheer blouse in the evening.

All white suits
Well all white is surely a statement. We loved this look on Mrs. O especially from the campaigns towards the end of last year. You can choose beige, white or bright footwear along.

Brights
Towards the other end of the spectrum it is time to go bright. Whether you feel like pink, red or a canary yellow or even electric blue, go bright is the mantra.
