One staple piece every woman should have is a suit. The versatility with a suit gives a woman many outfit options. Beyonce recently wore a printed suit while leaving her Parkwood office in NY. Her and her prints had the web going bananas! Since that moment, printed suits have taken a front seat for women’s workwear. A printed two or three piece suit is the new trend for 2016!
Not many too many women know how to rock this bold trend, so we here at EGL decided to show you how. We gave you five different styles, different prints and different colored suits any woman can wear. Get your notebook and pen ready, class is in session!
Suit: ASOS Textured Large Floral Blazer and Tapered Pant ($144),
Shoes: Nine West Tatiana Leather Dress Pump ($23),
Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch ($68),
Watch: Nine West Rubberized Bracelet Watch ($37)
Matchy matchy is making a comeback! To keep from taking it over board, try matching your accessories to the colors within your suit pattern. Wearing a solid color top, tank top or button up, will help pull all the colors and the print together. Matching colors are always best when the colors actually match. Try to match them as close as possible.
Suit: ASOS Floral Edge to Edge Blazer ($89)/Wide Leg Floral Culottes ($65),
Shoes: H&M Platform Sandals ($35),
Tote: Ted Baker London Bow Tote ($177),
Nail polish: London Nail Lacquer ($15)
Not your grandmother’s couch! Floral print is this spring/summer’s it pattern. Keep your flowers casual with these Wide Leg Floral Culottes from ASOS. Throw on a pair of cute, but simple sandals and you’re ready to walk the whole city. Try matching your polish to your floral print to add little girly flare.

Top: John Lewis Joy Sleeveless Blouse ($50),
Shoes: ASOS Harness Heeled Sandals ($67)

Ever tried color blocking with a pattern? If your two-piece suit comes in a bold pattern, bold it up even more with an eye catching solid color. Neons are always eye catching. Try this Neiman Marcus Tassel Crossbody bag. Its small size adds a chic flare to this Jacquard Embroidered short set from TopShop.

Shoes: Drop That Khaki Lamoda Lace Heels ($36),

If you’re not into prints, try rocking a solid colored suit. This River Island Plus Yellow Suit makes a bold statement just like a printed suit would. You can mix and match colors and make the suit your own. If you are feeling a little daring one day and want to add a little bit of a print, add it in with your shoes, bag, or top.

Try a classic cream colored suit, but with a twist. Modernize it with lines! This “graph paper” like pattern adds a little funk to a basic colored suit. Keep if fresh with a pair of matching sneakers. Try these PUMA by Rihanna Basket Creepers. They will look great with the suit’s skirt or pants. If you have a pant suit, add a cuff to the bottom of the pants to crop them even more!
