Mmmm- a plaid in darks ( touch of wine with black and grey - sounds worse than it is - lol) with bootcut pants and an interesting jacket . Looks pretty spectacular on the mannequin , and I think I’ll go try it on . Might be too dreary for me though with my new affinity for rich earth tones .

I have been looking for a red suit for years to replace one that I passed on. My present “suit” is a tuxedo style black pant affair that is perfect for the holidays. I have a sequined too I can wear with it and it can fit with silk black long johns if more warmth is needed, . A festive skirt suit would be welcomed, although I can do a bone white version and plain black.

Another stunning examples of your outfits, thanks Angie!!! Especially like the suit, it’s polished to perfection, but the tuxedo stripe pants are also very helpful for me to see. I struggle in fall and winter to pair my trousers with boots higher than the ankle bone - the hems bunch over the boots and this causes unflattering creases. This season I’m determined to solve this problem without reconciling with the bunched hems.

Gosh, but that S&S suit is so much fun!

You already know how I feel about both outfits, my sweet friend Just wanted to say that I fully support getting another suit
And your Yorkie brooch is so unique, fantastic!

The Zara cape is brilliant over the suit!

Love these outfits! The suit is so fun with gold shoes and cape. I'd love a velvet suit (haven't I seen a Boden one?) but not sure how much use it would get for the money.

Perfectly beautiful as always. Wish I could look this stylish on the regular. You never miss. Cannot pick a favorite, though I do love blue and black. Simply gorg.

Love it all. The cape!! The A necklace is great. I wear my L all the time (esp since it's a present from my son). Might get one in gold too.

Peplum! My favourite. I love that top with the tux trousers. Beautiful neutral palette and so crisp with the white boots and accessories. Striking even without colours.
And the suit! What a gorgeous outfit! This is exactly how I would love to dress for a theater.
You look gorgeous.

I adore you in your suit! And your selfies are ADORABLE!!

I love seeing your outfits! The navy outfit looks modern and a bit sporty. You have the best accessories. I like how you wore the A necklace with your pearls-they’re really nice together.

You are all so nice! Thank you.

Eliza and RobinF, if you dress the suit down - it can go almost anywhere.

MsMaven, I see a fun suit update in your future. You will wear it. I guarantee it.

Cindy, awwwwwhh! Thanks for being so sweet, doggie, and gracious.

MidwesternChic, Dana and RunCarla, you are lovely.

Jaime, you are awfully kind, and YAY! You get my unplanned outfit moments. HIGH FIVE.

Aquamarine, roomy wool coats at a longer length are almost always a good option.

Lisa P, sounds fab, and PLAID too. Try it on.

Joy, good suit strategy.

Dreika, we can help you with the booties and hem challenge here. Post a separate thread.

Inge, thanks and hugs

Laura, it’s a handy topper!

Kyle, I’m blushing. Thanks for the high praise.

Laurie, get the gold too! Or maybe your other son can give you that one

Katerina, YES. You came to mind when I put together these outfits. So you!

Alice, sporty but not athletic sounds dead right. Good observation, and thank you.

Back to say that I'm SOOOOO enjoying my PANTS!! Wearing jeans much less often. Style goal finally achieved

I do love that suit!

Thanks, unfrumped. Nice to see you chime in. Missed you.

Stunning! I love your new necklace and it looks so great layered with your signature pearls.

Thanks, Helena. You're lovely as always.

The peplum outfit with the pearls and striped pants are such a cool way to incorporate white in a dark outfit. It’s fun and elegant.

I am so wowed every time I see you in that suit. Oh my. The tailoring speaks for itself!

I’m tickled that you went to the ballet too. What an amazing performance!

Such a sweet comment, Kari. Thank you

LOVE that Scotch & Soda suit!! I wish I could have been at the opening night of Agon and Carmina Burana at PNB. I have a part-time job as an usher at McCaw Hall. Angie, I hope to see you at other PNB performances in the future. BTW, I'll be wearing a suit too, but it won't be as fabulous as yours.

HAH. I hope to bump into you too

Wow, Sky is falling down, Angie is wearing all black???? BTW these are Killerx2! Each one is unexpectedly different and so gorgeous- still your own (brightf& beautiful) style! Love the cape, too!:-)

Lyn67, not quite! Top is navy, and lots of cream accents. Big difference

Thanks for the sweet and gracious words!
