Makeena is well suited for any occasion, in this snappy two-piece suit in crimson from Petite Sophisticate. Who says that neutral and bland is the way to go for business attire? I was attracted to the peplum detail on the jacket, and thought it reflected current trends in fashion. Along with the above the knee pencil skirt it creates an attractive silhouette. Instead of a traditional blouse, a long-sleeved black cardigan with a lovely floral detail that complemented both the color and the pattern of the suit fabric is a cool way to update the look. Cinching in the sweater with a fabric belt, and using a simple piece of satin ribbon tied around her neck adds both interest and fashion punch! A patent leather square-frame bag and t-strap shoes keep it classy while not too matchy-matchy. As you can see we’ve created another stunning look for a lot less than retail from Goodwill!
