TV Style: 4 Tips Inspired by Rachel Zane of “Suits”


Rachel Zane’s style is influencing the fashion tastes of many everyday women climbing the corporate ladder. Many women watch “Suits” weekly to see how she makes classics such as button down shirts, trench coats and nude heels fresh and fashionable. Can’t get enough of Miss Zane? Here are four ideas to turn up the drama in your work outfits, inspired by Rachel’s beloved corporate style.

Wear a classic shirt in a different way


Rachel makes you want to buy 100 button down shirts. Take a trick from her playbook: pop the collar, roll the sleeves, or accentuate with delicate necklaces. Feeling really bold? Dare to half-tuck.

Dress head-to-toe in one color

Pair sweaters and skirts

How to make sweaters win in the office: 1) select comfortable, lightweight fabrics such as cashmere and merino wool; 2) leave the bulky, over-sized or tight styles for the weekend; and 3) wear necklines and colors that enhance both the face and neck like Rachel’s V-neck, which is a universally flattering style.

Printed tops

Bonus tip: Bend your own style rules

Get out of your comfort zone and embrace one thing you may have never imagined –  mix patterns and prints, play with different fabrics and textures, or break a fashion rule (yes, you CAN wear white in winter!). Need more ideas? Think about what Rachel Zane would do.
