I like the look and think it works because her suits have a very minimal, simple feel... but keep in mind it WILL look fashion-y even without you intending to do so and, as such, might be tough to do for work. Jil suits tend to have a rather stark, modern vibe to them that stands out. So, you might end up looking like a humorless German postmodern-art Dealer if you aren't careful.

That is unless you are in the business of German postmodern art dealing, then by all means...

+1. If it's a very conservative environment and profession, then it might draw unwelcomed attention.
