Balmy days are behind us, and trees are officially turning colors everywhere. With that, some of you have requested ideas for wearing the Convertible Pantsuit in colder weather!
I think there are really only two ways to go with this — layering with cardigans, blazers, and jackets over top, or wearing the pantsuit simply as pants with your own warm top. I had a chance to put together three quick looks, but you may find the notes / descriptions more helpful for raiding your own closet and coming up with some cool-weather ideas.
(PS, we’ll be shipping all new orders of the S/M black pantsuit on October 29th — they’re all sewn! If you already pre-ordered, yours ships this week.)
1. ALL BLACK
Here, I’m wearing the Convertible Pantsuit with a medium-high waist, straps wrapped around my waist and tied off in the front to create a little sash. A cropped sweater (or even a long, boxy sweater) would also be great with this. ANY style of boots works with the wide legs (I tried a few) and I like that the wide legs cover this up. A belt would also be an option to break things up in this outfit (or a big chunky scarf). And, slick leggings (think yoga) are easy to slip on underneath for an extra layer.
I wrapped the top of the pantsuit as conservatively as possible, covering as much skin as I could. For layering, I’m a fan of long and cozy, but I think a shorter blazer, or sweater-cardigan would be good too (and easier for bathroom breaks…). I just tucked the legs into my boots, and next time I’d try more mid-calf height boots with this.
3. HIGH-WAISTED WITH BLOUSE
OK, so I was going to call this a “work” look but hey, my shirt is completely see-through and I doubt anyone’s heading to work like that. BUT, the idea is that a light-weight blouse or top will be much easier to tuck in, and I like the difference in the loose blouse up top and the fitted waist you can create with the straps, countered again with the wide legs. A light button-down would be really nice here, and darker colors, obviously, might make for a more work appropriate style. ;)
As much as I love playing dress-up, I REALLY love seeing photos of you guys wearing your own! You can use the hashtag #seamlygal for Instagram to share, or if you have other ideas and suggestions, e-mail me at hello (at) seamly (dot) co and I’ll post to Facebook for everyone else.
Happy Fall, friends!
