The Extra-Bold Suit Trend That Will Be All The Rage In Spring 2023

Pantsuits for women have made a reappearance both in and out of the office. While they seem high-fashion at first glance, they are one of the easiest sets to style. The suit can be styled up or down, making it versatile and perfect for any occasion. This in itself explains why we are seeing the look on more of our favorite celebrities and even on the streets of the most fashion-forward cities. We aren't seeing typical boring, neutral suits; instead, we are seeing bold and extra pantsuits styled in a variety of untraditional ways. Colors, patterns, shine — oh, my! 

Give power suits a whole new meaning when you rock the look. A trend this intense can be intimidating, but there is plenty of fun inspiration to help you style your favorite variation of the trend. We have curated seven ways to recreate the bold suit look this spring.

Bra tops all the way

The bold suit trend isn't necessarily suitable for work. On those warmer spring days, show a little skin with your suit by wearing a bra top underneath an open blazer. We love a neutral bra top under a colorful suit. Instagram fashion influencer @meredithsophiaa shows us how it is done by wearing a pastel green suit complete with a visible white bra top underneath.

Pretty pastels

Pastels such as butter yellow and lavender are on fire this spring, even being a major trend for celebrities during awards season. "Conveying a message of cleanliness and simplicity, the pastels easily fit into a more minimalist and decluttered design aesthetic, as well as offer a quietness that is soothing to the soul," says Pantone's vice president Laurie Pressman in an interview with PopSugar about the pastel fashion trend. Why not add trendy pastels to your suit collection?

Shimmer and shine

If you are a glitz and glam person, you are covered with the extra-bold suit trend. Bejeweled, sparkly, and colorful, some bold suits have it all. Shimmering suits are a great option for a night out on the town, the club, or any formal event. Oftentimes, they include a matching undershirt for the ultimate glam look.

Bold overcoats

If chilly springs are common in your area, a coat may still be necessary with your suit. Luckily, bold overcoats that contrast with your bold suit are a fun way to style the trend. Instagram influencer and thrift store owner @sapnaraich shows a great way to get the look with a red longline coat over a bright purple suit.

Bright and colorful

Bright and colorful neons are back this spring season. Particularly, bright pink and yellow are being seen on the trendy suits. Zendaya is one celebrity that made us all want the look, as she posed in a hot pink suit on Instagram for Valentino's marketing campaign back in August 2022.

Printed and poppin'

You can never pass up a printed look, especially when it is a printed bold suit. Printed suits are a classic wardrobe staple. Houndstooth, plaid, and even floral suits are now just as common on the streets as they are on the red carpets. This spring, we recommend trying out the floral pattern on your suit. While florals themselves are obviously not groundbreaking, on a suit they are a unique and fun option.

All in the details

How you accessorize your bold suit is a big part of your final look. Go as bold with your accessories as you do with your suit. Especially if you choose a solid color suit, going all out with accessories is a great option. Instagram content creator @annavictoriax0x0 shows that accessories make all the difference with a pink Jacquemus bag, sparkly drop earrings, and a chain belt.
