Women’s Suits

Fortunately, women’s suits are sold as separates, for example, buying a women’s suit pant in say size 16 and a women’s suit jacket size in 14 is no problem furthermore, a women’s suit skirt can add to the diversity of your suiting outfit. If you fancy a women’s waistcoat that will add a fourth item to your suit mix. When starting in a women’s corporate wear outfit. You need not go past three basic colour choices, black, charcoal or navy. Your choice of a women’s business shirt can add colour to the sombre tones of the basic, but dominate women’s business suit. Make sure to check out Women’s shirt size chart page for all required info related to size guide.

Women’s Suit Jacket

A women’s suit jacket is fashionable in two lengths the first a cropped jacket that fits about 15cm below the waist is most popular and secondly a longer jacket that covers your seat. One button front is the most popular which looks fine open, or buttoned up when required. Lapels are plain, or a notched lapel style and the front pockets are flap or jetted. Sleeve buttons on the cuff are standard three buttons and mock buttonholes.

Women’s Suit Pant

Women’s suit pant styles fit into three general types, one, a utility pant style which is a roomier leg and deemed a classic cut. Secondly, a slim leg style to the ankle and thirdly the cigarette pant is slim to very narrow and a length around 10cm above the ankle. Pocketing can be various; our offer is two jetted back pocket and side pockets on the slant or verticle—additionally a coin fob pocket on some Gloweave women’s pant styles.

Women’s Suit Skirt

Women’s suit skirts come in three general shapes. An a-line skirt is generally to the knee depending on your height and wide enough at the knee not to restrict movement. A skirt style that taper’s to the knee is more shapely for women and is more sort after. The pencil skirt is more restrictive, mostly above the knee and a narrow fit. Other features to note are functional pleats and non-functional pleated detail on knee-length skirts. Also, some skirts may have front pocketing.

Women’s Suit Vest

The versatility of purchasing a women’s suit vest is twofold; worn under the jacket is excellent, especially for cold weather. However, at work, your waistcoat can do the job of the jacket still dressed but less restrictive, and it creates another look to your pant-suit or skirt-suit. Our featured vest is a four-button front with jetted pockets and same fabric back and front.

Women’s Suit Fabrication

There is one thing that shifts the pendulum on price and quality, and that is wool!  The pros and cons of having a women’s suit with wool or having a synthetic suit are arguable. A wool or wool blend or wool stretch suit will give you longevity, and a smarter look as a wool blend will drape better and mould around your neck and shoulders. However, dry cleaning expenses are a further cost. Plus wool is not cheap. The alternative is poly/ viscose or various synthetic blends, which can create a washable suit and is substantially less expensive than a wool blend suit. Washable suits can be useful for travelling and no dry cleaning expenses. Ultimately it comes down to price and how much you can afford.

Women’s Suit Colours

Although there are some beautiful pastel coloured suits out in the market in most cases, they are not appropriate for the workplace. Women’s suits for workwear need to be serviceable; that’s why black, charcoal and navy are in abundance. Try mixing from skirt to pant and go beyond a white shirt, for colour and variety, try blues, reds, pinks and greys and striped shirts too.
