Women in suits: a bad idea? - Page 7

post #91 of 95
I'm a trial lawyer and see many women in suits every day. Some look great, some not so much, some horrid.
I'm a trial lawyer, I see men in suits every day. A few look great, a few more look okay, and the rest look horrid.
And the OP doesn't seem to realize that the optimum shape for both sexes is the hourglass, as shown by some of the British military inspired suits.
That said, a woman's suit must be tailored for a woman. My wife looks fabulous in the ones she owns. But I'm not posting pics.

The problem is that most womens' clothes are really cheap, poorly fitted, and not meant to last at all. ~ H

Next people will be saying that women don't look good in jeans.

The topic reminded me of this advertising photo. I think they look good although quite masculine.
