The styling trick: Pastel tailoring

Vanessa Hong and Elizabeth von der Goltz

Contrary to what you might think, these souped-up suits aren’t just street-style catnip, they’re actually infinitely wearable. A masterful mix of everything from masculinity and femininity to elegance and ease, there’s something here for everyone. The secret to making it work for you is in the styling. Fashion buyer Elizabeth von der Goltz gets maximum style mileage from her powder-pink suit by dressing it down with a fun tee and pointed pumps – a look that works whether you’re in or out of office. After dark, follow Vanessa Hong’s lead and elevate baby-blue tailoring with statement earrings and a satin grab bag – you’ll stand out in a sea of black.
