He said “dress like a woman” and we said “hell yes!” It’s a good thing we just dropped our all new, super fresh collection of menswear inspired suiting to get you super pumped for spring. Are you excited yet? What if we told you that collection now features an expanded size range of XS-XL!? We asked a few of our faves to take our new suits for a test drive and give some no-holds-barred feedback about fit, style, and what works best for your bangin’ bod.

 

ALICE: TALL AND CURVY

Height: 5’8

Size: 10/12 or 29-31 (depending on brand & stretch!)

The Stenberg Long Blazer (XL) / The Malek Trouser (XL) / The Shawkat Shirt (XL)

“Head to toe pattern is a great way to make a statement so I would totally rock this at an event or special occasion. The wide leg trousers fit great through the hip and thigh and I loved how the long lines of the blazer had a slimming effect. The best part though? The button up fit perfectly—no gapping or pulling. Anyone with a larger chest knows this is good as gold.”

THE DAVIS BLAZER (XL)  / THE ANSARI PANT (XL) / THE CHOPRA SHIRT (XL)

“This cropped blazer was probably my favorite of the bunch; It was tailored to perfection: fitted but with enough room to comfortably button and accentuate my hourglass shape. The slim cut pants gapped a bit at the waist but that actually made them kind of perfect for rocking with a tucked in button up.”

THE WILLIAMS BF BLAZER (XL) / THE GLOVER JOGGER (XL)

“I’m normally a jeans and tee type of girl, so the relaxed fit and added stretch of this look made it feel super natural. I like the slouchy, casual vibe of the jogger silhouette but I definitely think I could’ve sized down to a Large if I wanted a more polished look.”

 

SARA: TALL AND SLIM

Height: 5’8

Size: 4/6 or 27 in pants

The Stenberg Long Blazer (S) / The Malek Trouser (S) / The Shawkat Shirt (S)

“This blazer is first place on my wish list—the longer length and slim cut is a tall girl’s dream come true! I normally gravitate toward a slimmer pant but, paired with this blazer, I feel like the wide leg was a fun way to play with proportions on a straighter body.”

THE DAVIS BLAZER (S)  / THE ANSARI PANT (S) / THE CHOPRA SHIRT (S)

“Cropped pants on long legs can be tricky, but these were perfectly tapered to look intentional rather than giving off that I-just-walked-in-from-the-flood vibe. The blazer nips in at the waist which definitely adds curves on a slim frame but, personally, I’d probably size up to a Medium in both the button up and jacket since I’m not super comfortable accentuating my bust.”

THE WILLIAMS BF BLAZER (S) / THE GLOVER JOGGER (S)

“I really don’t like tight clothes so I am a huge fan of the jogger’s elastic drawstring waist. Paired with the relaxed fit of the boyfriend blazer (perfect to rock unbuttoned!) and the playful floral print, this suit just felt so much less serious and stuffy than the other looks.”

 

ALE: PETITE AND CURVY

Height: 5’3

Size: 4/6 or a 27 in pants with stretch and 29 in a ‘boyfriend’ fit

The Stenberg Long Blazer (S) / The Malek Trouser (M) / The Shawkat Shirt (S)

“I really love the long blazer but ended up sizing down from a Medium to a Small so it didn’t look like a was drowning in fabric—a little snug in the arms but looked much better overall. I was also a little concerned that the wide, cropped leg would end up making me look wider, but I actually loved how they were relaxed in the leg but hugged the booty perfectly. On the whole, the all-over print felt a little overwhelming on a petite frame, so I’d most likely rock these pieces as separates.”

THE DAVIS BLAZER (M)  / THE ANSARI PANT (M) / THE CHOPRA SHIRT (S)

“The shrunken fit and emphasis on waist made this blazer silhouette the most flattering on my body, for sure. The fabric is a little stiffer and less forgiving than the other styles but it also made me feel more pulled together and polished than some of the other looks.”

THE WILLIAMS BF BLAZER (S) / THE GLOVER JOGGER (S)

“This was pretty far out of my comfort zone for a girl who rocks a lot of black, but it was a surprise fave for sure. I pulled the pants up for a more high waisted look (great for anyone with hips and a butt), but even pulled up I had to roll the cuffs a bit to keep the cropped length. As far as prints go, I love the subtle, small floral—it felt more approachable and more appropriate for a petite gal.”
