The boss chic look
A woman in a suit commands power and respect while oozing sophistication. While you have the option of buying a ready made suit, preferably, it's better to have one tailor made so that the fitting is perfect. Plus you can get the tailor to add details such as a zipper at the bottom of the pants for instance.
While going for a power suit, do not be afraid of trying out colors and prints. A suit doesn't have to be in the cliche black or navy blue colors. You could choose vibrant colors such as Yellow, white or even red. You could also choose prints such as window pane or tartan prints which are timeless. Feel free to go for trendy designs such as having a blazer with a cape detail or even having a tuxedo suit. Your options are not limited. There re many stockists who deal in tailor made suits for women such as The Undisputed Woman and many talented tailors too all over Nairobi so you have no excuse.
One thing about suits is that they're a great investment seeing as you have the blazer and the pants and you could wear them as separates.
