Margot Robbie Makes the Three-Piece Suit Way Less Stuffy
Typically, you suit up in order to head into an office. A blazer with trousers is one of the most sleek and professional outfits to wear to work—you can’t go wrong with it. But that doesn’t have to mean it has to be stuffy or devoid of any fashion personality. Just take cues from Margot Robbie: The star stepped out in New York City today wearing a modern take on a gray three-piece suit by Mango.
Why did Robbie’s take on 9-to-5 dressing work so well? It was all in the fit and proportions. While the tailored fabric was classic enough, the shape of the pieces made it less mensy and more fashion forward. Her buttoned vest was shrunken, for one, and the silhouette is in line with one of the biggest street style trends for fall. Then, her skinny-fit pants had a slit at the hem—perfect for showing off her pointy-toe Prada heels, which elevated the look overall (as did her movie star-worthy Chanel sunglasses, and subtle ’90s-style shoulder bag).
Robbie’s clearly been drawing inspiration from the recent runways with this look, where labels such as Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, and Sportmax have all been showing suits that are a little more edgy and youthful. The best part is you could wear a more relaxed suit like Robbie’s in a boardroom or to a cocktail party—it’s like the traditional suit’s cooler sibling.
