We recently featured our Cork tailor, Karen Lunnon, on the blog, wearing one of our women’s business suits. Well, Selena Gomez seems to have taken a leaf out of Karen’s book. Last night, she was photographed wearing a fantastic, tailored dinner suit with heels at the Teen Choice Awards.
But look closely! Gomez seems to be wearing a trouser suit – but she’s actually wearing a jumpsuit.
To be honest, it took me a while to figure out what was going on with Gomez’s waist.
“Where’s the jacket base?” I thought – before realizing it was all one piece. Where you’re led to expect a fastened button, you actually find the jacket blends into the trousers.
Chances are you won’t want to wear this look to work. The satin peaked lapels are much better for the evening while a jumpsuit isn’t typical business attire.
Otherwise, this is just the kind of suit we love to tailor for our female customers. Especially the tailored fit, the sharp shoulders and the narrow ankles.
The best thing about being fitted for a bespoke trouser suit is that you get to choose all the details. This includes how close you want the suit to be tailored to your body and how low you want your trousers to fall.
In these pictures, Gomez has clearly opted for extremely narrow trousers. She also wears her ankle cuffs high to show off her heels. You can see that Karen, our Cork tailor (below), has gone for a similar look. Her suit is a three piece suit and features a slim, tailored fit.
The type of look you’re going for and the kind of shoes you wear are just some of the things to consider when styling your suit. One of our style advisors will help you think through these options in your first consultation.
