A suit has long been considered the epitome of power-dressing. Commonly referred to as the ultimate girl boss outfit, even our celebrated Bollywood A-listers, who we regard as our own Fashion Inspos, haven't shied away from rocking this trend. But suits aren't the only power-dressing option out there. Not if skirt suits for ladies have something to say about it.
This season, cropped hemlines have taken over the helm from the classic ensemble. Celebrities from Bollywood and Hollywood were spotted swapping pants for shorter, more playful pairings this season, from meeting-ready skirt suits to alluring skirt combos.
When Chanel gave the skirt suit a makeover for the MTV era in the 1990s, it became an iconic look. Princess Diana was pictured wearing this stylish ensemble multiple times during that era, and it quickly became a fashion phenomenon. Global superstars from the current age have worn the skirt suit numerous times, including the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Oprah Winfrey, and Michelle Obama.
So, what are you waiting for? It's time to put away the worn-out pants and usher in a new era of trendsetting blazers! Check out how the divas across the world are reinventing this classic style of power dressing - skirt suits.
PC’s Yellow Tiger
Chopra once again dominated the show while promoting her movie, The White Tiger, wearing a yellow skirt suit by Rowen Rose. In addition to having thick black buttons, padded shoulders, and front button slit pockets, Chopra's jacket also included a vinyl trim throughout the hemline and sleeves.
If you don't mind experimenting with vivid colours, Priyanka Chopra's skirt suit is the ideal style for you. The best thing about it is that you can adapt it to fit a variety of situations, including formal brunches with your friends, sundowners, and even business meetings.
Here’s a baby pink look-alike version of PC’s Yellow Tiger that is the perfect skirt suit for office wear. Add to cart now!
A-Line with Sonam
Just like Sonam Kapoor, you need a stunning classic to complete your monsoon wardrobe. A flared A-line skirt never fails to make a statement, and the flare also allows you the ease of movement that a pencil skirt just won’t. You can always accessorize the appearance and add a flash of colour at the same time by using bright, vivacious belts.
Find your own A-line flared statement piece right here with this beige poly moss skirt suit.
Katrina’s Navy Blues
Katrina Kaif is one of the fashion trailblazers in Bollywood. She was pictured at a promotional event in a semi-formal outfit. Katrina kept it simple in a navy blue jacket and skirt for the occasion. The diva, who was recently in the news for tying the knot with Vicky Kaushal, brought a little bit of levity to the otherwise serious event with a touch of glitter on the lapels of her blazer and heels.

Olivia’s Checkered White House Trip
The American actress, singer, and songwriter Olivia Rodrigo gave us a lesson on how to dress for a sophisticated event. The young actress visited the White House in a Chanel checkered skirt suit to meet President Joe Biden, looking fashionable as hell.
