How to work the two-piece, SKarman Style tips:

-A Casual look: If you feel this look is too risky for your evening style, then its perfect for adding a little flavour to your day look. Contrasting with the tailored trousers and blazer, work a t-shirt, vest or mid-drift top underneath, relaxing the entire outfit.

-Accessories: To loosen up the structured look, its always good to layer up on accessories, from stack rings, to chunky statement necklaces, a great pair of earrings and arm candy . Choose one element of accessorizing, to not overcrowd your complete look.

-Bare all: Work your two-piece evening look with baring all, meaning just wearing the suit and nothing else underneath. Adding an overdose of femininity.

I love great tailoring with a unique twist, styling up your own two-piece will give the great advantage of creating a whole new look. Finished off with a pair of great heels or a quirky flat, it is the official look that can take you from day to evening.-

"The reinvention of this look is forever endless, a timeless classic that can always fit into any modern day style."-SKarman
