Calgary Fashion Jobs – The New Suit

Flipping through magazines and ogling floor length gowns and Soho-ready leotards is always fun. But having pieces in your closet that you can love and wear everyday is even more exciting. This season, designers are giving us exactly what we want (and need!) – classic, comfortable, dreamy pieces that any woman can use. The new power suit can be worn to work, lunch, for cocktails and at night. With a modern 70s twist for fall, this look is all about slinky fabric, monochromatic pieces and wide leg trousers. Think of it as your new “go anywhere, look fabulous” outfit.
