I've never owned a suit. I searched for one briefly in college, but was so discouraged by the boxy, unflattering options that I stopped looking right then and there. I never needed one in any of my previous corporate jobs, but I occasionally put together my own interpretation, just for fun. In lieu of pleated trousers and button-downs, I prefer comfortable basics with tailored cuts. I'm all about neutrals for spring (as seen here) and I like how this peach-colored blazer complements my tan shorts, but doesn't match perfectly. With a few playful pieces, like a relaxed striped top, a statement necklace and yellow heels, it's an easy way to feel pulled together without appearing too corporate.
