By definition suits are dressy. And unfortunately there are probably several hanging at the back of your closet that you paid too much for to purge. This article will tell you how to transform your classic suits into acceptable business casual suits that are modern and fun to wear.  

MIX AND MATCH JACKETS AND SKIRTS: Suits are monolithic, the jacket and skirt are the same color.  When you decide to mix and match jackets and skirts you will double your wardrobe and transform your dated dressy suits into contemporary casual ones.

TRY LEATHER: As long as your leather jacket is not too heavy or too adorned with studs or zippers, it could be a great topper for skirts or pants at work. Your classic skirts or tailored trousers can be dressed down with a leather jacket, but still look business casual.  

USE SWEATERS: The classic cashmere "twin set" makes a great business casual suited look. Or try a belted cardigan over a white shirt and dark pants. Make a dress look like a casual suit by wearing it with a contrast cardigan sweater. Be a power dresser and combine high contrast colors like a [Link Removed] with a black skirt or trouser.

    • Yes I do have expensive suits hanging in my closet and I do (did) mix them up as you suggested.
      However these days I spend more time in flip flops then heels. Any suggestions to mix them up with jeans?

    • I used to work in a law office and I’m thinking of getting rid of my suits.  I know I never want to work in a law firm again so I may take them to a resale shop if I can’t sell them at my garage sale that I’ve been planning since early summer.
