Just about every fall 2017 trend roundup across the internet has dubbed the power suit a “must-have” for the season, and I have to agree: It’s a strong look. But if you’re wondering how to navigate the seemingly slim options — when shelling out hundreds (thousands?) of dollars on suggested ’fits from Calvin Klein and Altuzarra aren’t an option, and the ones that are reasonably priced are boring at best — we have a solution.
Enter Wildfang and its newly launched line of exclusive fall suiting. It’s anything but boring, and with pieces ranging from $98 to $188, it’s actually attainable, too. You’ll find plenty of standout colors and prints, from deep blue brocade covered in floral detailing to yellow-and-green plaid and fun pinstripes. Simple solid-colored suits are played up with contrasting lapels and suede elbow pads.
Created in partnership with the designers at Lucca Couture, the suiting collection offers classic menswear styles like the tuxedo jacket and vest along with casual and long blazer options, cropped and wide-leg pants, and even a bomber jacket style.
Each piece is quirky and fun, and all of them would look just as good worn separately for everyday wear as they do all together in a full head-to-toe look for that real Power Suit vibe.
It’s also worth noting that Wildfang — a brand that has made transparency and inclusivity a goal since its initial launch in 2010 — demonstrates what the collection looks like on five different models ranging in sizes from XS to XL. You’ll find each person’s bust and height measurements and typical top and bottom sizes to make the whole ordering-a-suit-online thing a lot less stressful.
