Pep things up by going for something more stylish than the traditional button down. A pussybow neckline can add drama to an otherwise plain suit. The flowy bow will add a flare to the entire look. Another shirt option would be a turtle neck or half turtle neck with a fitted cut. The plain palette of a solid colored fitted top will allow you to play with accessories.
Cut of the pant
To keep your suit hip, give some attention to the cut of the pant. If you choose to go with wide leg pants or a more slim fit, exaggerating certain aspects of either will define the look. If slim is the way you decide to go, look for a pant with a pronounced crease.
Wide leg pants can make a bold statement as well by creating a more billowy silhouette. To perfect the wide leg look, make sure the pants are long enough to float just about the floor.

Jacket over Dress
A classic blazer layered over a fitted knee length sheath dress is ideal for a formal, reasonably conservative, professional work setting. But if you’re looking for a more playful outfit, try combining a shorter dress with a boyfriend blazer or hip length tuxedo jacket. Layering longer jackets over dresses works best with form fitting or sack dresses. The proportions don’t work as well over A-line or fit-and-flare frocks unless you belt the layers at the waist. Scrunch up the sleeves for textural outfit interest.
A Skirt Suit
When styling a skirt suit, you should consider the length of the skirt, as it has a dramatic effect on the finished look. For a work environment, short skirts are acceptable if they end no higher than just above the knee. They can be worn with tights or stockings. Opaque tights in neutral tones, such as black, can be worn during the winter. A-line or pencil skirts that fall to the mid calf create a smart appearance and work well with all body shapes. Full length skirts that reach the ankle are an excellent choice for taller women and for women who wish to draw the eye downward to minimise the breadth of the shoulders or chest.
Flats have their place, but heels are a must with a suit. The height of the heel will depend on your preference. For wide leg pants, go for an almond toed or a pointed toed pump. Both are stylish and young and both look amazing peeping from under the edge of floor length flared pants. Platforms are making an appearance this fall and they could also work with the wide leg, billowy look.
For slimmer pants, go with a pump that is narrow in appearance. Pointed toes look best while almond toed pumps tend to widen the look too much and take away the balance of the ensemble.
Blazers come in many shapes, styles, cuts and lengths. You can play with all these variables to create a look that suits you. For an updated and hip look, stay away from too many buttons. A blazer with one or two buttons works across the board and looks current. For a bit of drama, try a blazer that is mid-thigh to knee length. Make sure the shirt you pair with the look makes a statement on its own, as you will likely remove such a dramatic jacket, once you are inside.
Accessories are one of the best ways to play with current trends while remaining age appropriate. Updated jewelry can transform a look into something young and hip. The plain canvas created with a half turtle neck or turtleneck is the perfect place to overlay a bold statement necklace. If the pussybow top appeals to you, accessories like ornate, but small, chandelier earrings will work for you.
Suits are a great way to look professional at work. And with these tips they will make you look hip too!
