Although pantsuits have long since been considered a wardrobe staple of the working woman, it seems that ladylike suiting is now being transformed into a celebrity street style staple. On the sidewalks, warm weather suits are being embraced by young Hollywood, as the likes of Zendaya and Rita Ora have started to make a splash in smart pantsuits.
Zendaya looks edgy and sharp in an oversized pinstriped blazer, paired with a cropped white top and matching trousers. Meanwhile, the red rose accents on her boyfriend blazer bring an exotic and vaguely feminine feel to her overall ensemble. For a finishing touch, the Spider-Man: Homecoming actress brought an athleisure inspired touch to her outfit with her clean white sneakers.
Looking just as effortlessly chic was the beautiful Rita Ora, who stunned in head-to-toe pastel blue. The 26-year-old star is known for her rebellious take on contemporary trends, and looks gorgeous in this powder blue longline blazer and coordinating pants. With its oversized white buttons and strappy heels, Ora manages to turn her 1980s theme into a strangely current look. We are liking her embellished sunglasses, which light up her outfit of the day and coordinate with her metallic jewellery.
Whether you decide to go funky like Zendaya or eccentric like Ora, there’s nothing quite like a summery pantsuit with girlish accents and cool pastel tones. Instead of staid dark neutrals and woolly textures, try turning to cooler fabrics and colours for a fascinating approach to the suiting trend.
