Style File: Well-Suited

Welcome to our first Beautiful You Mondays "fashion spread"!

There's just something about Fall that inspires a fabulous suit! Not only are retail favorites Lane Bryant and the Avenue displaying some really stylish and tailored-looking suits, but I have even seen some fabulous pieces in mail order catalogs such as Jessica London and Roamans. Surprise surprise, huh?

While sites like Igigi and Kiyonna have some great signature pieces, I always find myself turning to to find some (more affordable) staple pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. Here are some suggestions--what do you think?

I love your style. Many times I get so caught up in all the things I wouldn't look nice in, I put myself in a fashion rut. The pieces you picked are very stylish and very flattering. The clothes definately show that you've got "goodies" without actually showing all your " goodies". Please do more fashion. Thanks!
