Power to the Boyfriend Suit

It's pretty difficult to deny that the 80s are back with a vengeance as well as the blazer (my personal fave, which I post about often) combine them both and you get the Boyfriend Suit aka the Pantsuit. Make fun of "the pantsuit" all you want (I am referring to the numerous references about Hillary Clinton and her countless pantsuits). A more feminine pantsuit has entered the scene- chic and sophisticated with slim trousers and a sleek blazer. Designers from; Stella McCartney to Balmain to Gucci have begun to do an overhaul of the pantsuit and has quickly caught on. The New York Times article today on the pantsuit rockets this idea to the mainstream.
I noticed the Gucci suit below in Fall '08 as it quickly became a favorite look of mine- strong, independent yet still feminine.
