I’ve always loved male silhouettes that traditionally come out of the rigid gender spectrum. I mean, how come a man wearing the same suit three to five days a week is perceived as professional, but a woman wearing a suit occasionally is tied to specific connotations?
This is a thesis topic that I don’t have time to write about, but in the meantime I’ll just say that women have recently been wearing shitty costumes to any place or event. Kristen Stewart wore a shorts suit at the Oscars, Bella Hadid seems to have a closet full of suits, and even Euphoria features Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney have embraced the trend — style is literally everywhere.
Costumes have never gone out of style, but I think the current fixation on them comes from certain competing things. Life in the United States is approaching a sort of new normal where many non-essential workers are returning to the office for the first time in years. Many of us have spent the last two years in (lounge) suits, and going from once a week to potentially five days a week is daunting. A suit is a very quick and chic solution.
The two (or sometimes three) piece look also creates an air of mystery: am I a successful, level-headed businesswoman who channels confidence through her outfit, or have I forgotten what a 27-year-old human is supposed to wear? Am I a breath of decision and sensitivity, or have I forgotten that laundry day should be more than once a month? Am I literally the essence of Julia Roberts in the 80s, or have I forgotten the time management skills needed to be ready in time for work? A suit never says.
Below are seven celebrities dressed in power looks, along with more sensible ways to channel the vibe on your own without spending thousands of dollars. Keep scrolling to shop the Hollywood-approved suit trend for spring.
In this photo from 2020, Sydney Sweeney wears a three-piece tweed suit by Balmain (which apparently is no longer sold). The skirt suit is clearly a must-have style in the actress’ wardrobe. she was recently seen in New York in a similar Miu Miu outfit. The exact pastel pink outfit she wore last month includes the Single-breasted sequined gingham jacket and Gingham skirtwhich are $4,000 and $1,850 respectively.

While promoting Spider-Man: No Coming Home, Zendaya wore a sparkly and embellished blazer dress by Alexander McQueen. The Spring/Summer 2022 collection isn’t available in stores yet, but for what I’m guessing is at least $10,000 less (!) you can get this Chic and minimal Lilysilk dress. It’s sequin-free, but you can add your personal touch by adorning it with vintage appliques, brooches and pins.
