The traditional work inspired pantsuit has rarely been on my radar in the past. Finding a flattering, not too stuffy option was always nearly impossible. But this season, I’m seeing so many new pieces that are changing my mind. Fitted cropped jackets with wide-leg pants, loose cut, over-sized or double-breasted blazers with slim-fitting slacks.
