Fashion Forward: Pantsuits
This spring, dressing classy is making a comeback. If you're tired of the current trends, pantsuits are becoming popular again. Seven's Shireen Sandoval shows us how to get the look in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN--"Why don't you tell me, how you would like this to end?"
When it comes to fashion, take it from Jodie Foster in her latest flick, "Inside Man".
This season, suits -- especially pantsuits -- are giving women a leg up.
Allison Bass: "It's in for spring, what type of pantsuit? Well the boho look from last year is out and the pantsuit is a more refined and tailored look for spring."
At Bloomingdale's at the Aventura Mall, pantsuits are less uniform looking and more versatile.
You can wear them with full length pants... Or change up the look using the same jacket but a different bottom.
Allison Bass: "This spring pant lengths are in every imaginable length. All the different lengths are in and the best part of the cropped pant is that you can see your shoe."
Mix a green military-style jacket with beige pants.
Or, like your favorite popsicle, go ahead and match orange with cream.
Pantsuits are pretty and feminine especially when you wear them with a trendy top.
Allison Bass: "You can wear either a camisole or a romantic blouse, something frilly with detail to add to your pantsuit."
At Loehmann's in Aventura, you can find the latest designer pantsuit at major discount prices...
Especially in the store's famous back room.
Cropped and fitted, single breasted jackets are popular and so are cuffed pants.
But you don't have to wear the same outfit from head to toe.
Marsha Litrenta: "You can definitely mix and match. You can mix and match color. You can mix and match fabrics."
Wear a long textured jacket with a tailored pant.
Or go for a classic white on white pinstripe.
It's easy to take the look from the boardroom to a night out on the town.
Marsha Litrenta: "You can definitely go from the office to out, for the evening. You can enhance with some jewelry, some beads, some fashion earrings."
Shireen Sandoval: "If you want to be really daring, you can eliminate the camisole and go for a deep plunge neckline... But check your company's dress policy first."
