Suit Yourself

This season’s slim, chic suits evoke ’ 40s glamour. PLUS: Bold handbags that make a statement.

This season’s fitted suits, silk blouses, pencil skirts, and peep-toe pumps are reminiscent of ’40s glam. Whether you’re an executive or a socialite, a slim suit like this one by Ralph Lauren exudes confidence. Chunky jewels or colorful accessories add modern style. A fur collar, wrap, stole, or chubbie completes the chic ensemble. Keep makeup clean and simple, accented by a bold lip.
