I remember power suits being a big thing in the 80’s. I loved Melanie Griffith in Working girl. But I think my love of suits and ties comes from wanted to dress like my dad as a little girl. I “borrowed” his ties as a teenager, unable to tie them on my own and using them as belts. Of course I also wanted his briefcase. Español aquí.
Things are looking up now and I finally have a suit and tie of my own. As a petite woman, I like these pieces to be fitted. I look for brands that favor petite frames. My last game changer is having all of my blazer sleeves hemmed. I trusted my tailor with this because I’ve known him for years. I’m definitely glad that I don’t have to fold all of my sleeves. Does anyone else have this problem?
