A compendium of knowledge for classy women
Women’s suits are a set consisting, as a rule, of a tailored jacket complete with a skirt and, in a few cases, a dress. The distinctive feature of this style is its two-partedness.
The Suit jacket is designed to be worn directly on the body without the need for a blouse or top. Which is not forbidden if one wishes to do so. Modern suit jackets can take unusual forms, designed in a variety of styles – from simple business cuts, through diplomatic and formal designs to exclusive evening and ballroom creations.
The jacket in a suit is often fastened with a dense row of buttons, hooks or a zip. The location and form of the fastening are only limited by the designer’s or designer’s imagination and technological possibilities. The same applies to the length of the sleeves, where different variations can be used, such as butterfly sleeves, short sleeves, 3/4 length or long, formal sleeves.
Exclusive suits for wedding mums
Increasingly, suits are being chosen by mothers-in-law of weddings for the formal parts of the ceremony, such as the blessing, the wedding ceremony in church or the swearing in at the registry office, as well as for the formal dinner. The increasing level of organisation, culture and class of the celebrations means that impeccable formal styling is even required for the mother and mother-in-law of the wedding party. No women’s styling can match the royal appearance of a suit in such situations.
Modern wedding suit
Luxury wedding suits have become extremely fashionable and are a popular choice for ladies who appreciate classics. Women’s two-piece sets for civil weddings a fashion hit for the mature young lady of 30+, 40+, 50+, 60+ etc.
The phrase ‘women’s suit with trousers’ is acceptable, although the correct name for such a set is ‘trouser’.
Women’s evening suits
Elegant women’s ensembles with trousers come in a variety of styles and for different occasions, from church and civil weddings, communions, christenings, business and diplomatic sets to evening creations ideal for galas.
A ladies’ costume, on the other hand, is a set that consists of a jacket or blazer and a skirt that requires a blouse or dress to be worn underneath, usually because the neckline is too deep. Of course, the dress or skirt must form a cohesive set with the jacket, or blazer.
The term ‘suit’ and ‘ladies’ costume’ most often refers to a set with a skirt, usually a pencil skirt, although it can also be a set with a mini skirt or a maxi skirt with a slit, as well as a flowy flared skirt. On the other hand, the combination of jacket and trousers may be called a ‘ladies’ suit with trousers’, although the correct name is ‘ladies’ suit’.
Fashionable women’s suits
The ladies’ suit has won the hearts of many European women and has become a popular choice for both business meetings, business trips and family celebrations such as communions, christenings and weddings. Its elegant nature and high level of presentation make it a frequent styling choice for wedding mums. Both the exclusive trouser and the women’s suit are also extravagant evening options for prestigious galas, theatre, opera and film premieres.
Women’s dress with jacket a suit
Not every set with a dress is a suit and not every suit is a jacket-dress set.
De Marco’s simple formal suit jacket with dress.
A formal suit dress is the base piece of this styling, sewn in the same fabric as the jacket, with no or trace embellishments. These are ensembles with a formal business style or a restrained formal look. Perfect for business meetings, conferences and diplomatic talks. The dress in such a set has no sleeves, or they are as short as possible, as the jacket is, fitted and two layers of fabric will negatively affect the comfort.
