Think summer and you immediately associate it with floral dresses and crop tops. Never in two lives would you think of a pantsuit for the sweltering season. Recently on the Cannes red carpet, B-town's finest like Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan suited up and looked like a million bucks, never mind the fact that it was scorching outside. Which begs the question; can a pantsuit actually be worn in summer, if it's not on the red carpet?
By the looks of Diana Penty's latest look, we certainly think so. For the promotions of her upcoming flick Parmanu, Diana wore a bright lavender pantsuit over a white top, matched with similar toned pointed pumps. With it, she wore a barely there makeup look and her hair in a loose ponytail. A single glance was enough to confirm that she nailed it and pantsuits really are summer-worthy. To know how, here are a few fashion tips decoded from Diana Penty's look that made it such a success.
The first thing that catches your eye about this pantsuit is its lavender colour. It's a bright pop of colour but isn't bold enough to be attention-grabbing, which makes it just the right shade for summer.
Look hard enough at the fit and form of the suit and you'll notice that it is unlike others. Devoid of buttons or any clasps, the cut of the blazer is wider, giving is a casual feel. The cuffs at the hands and feet are also cropped, adding to the relaxed fit of the overall suit. So much better than a stuffy, buttoned-up coat!
To complement her pantsuit, Diana has paired it with nothing. You heard us right. To keep all eyes on suit itself, her look was sans jewellery or any kind of accessories. Only a fresh face, easy hairstyle and matching footwear was worn, which took away nothing from the outfit and only added a polished finish.
We hope you've made your notes carefully if you want to look as good as Diana in your next suit this season.
