Are Colorful Pantsuits Actually Sexy?

Posted on

Think pantsuits are just for 9-5ers who can’t get away with jeans in the office? Think again!

Last week we honored Blake Lively with a PEOPLE Summer Style Award for her red-hot two-piece getup; she wore Michael Kors to promote her new film Savages in New York. And ever since then, it seems everyone in Hollywood is getting in on the not-so-corporate-anymore trend.

Recently, Mandy Moore was spotted at a Dove event wearing a suit, but eschewing the traditional black or navy color, opting instead for a head-to-toe cream ensemble finished with leopard-print platforms.

And Harper’s Bazaar cover girl Rihanna also recently rocked a red suit with pink accents while in London.

You don’t have to secretly hope your office adopts a pantsuit policy to try the look, though; this workplace staple is now appropriate for date night, brunch with the girls and everything in between — as long as you go with an unexpected hue. Tell us: Do you think colored pantsuits are hot? Would you wear one?
