What to Wear: Cognac Suit

What to Wear: Cognac Suit

After a brief hiatus, we’re back with a fresh What to Wear Wednesday. Today is a real treat because I think this is my favorite suit to date. Shoooooot, it might be my favorite outfit to date, the cognac suit. I was inspired after seeing the blazer on Ashley Parke of Parke Avenue on YouTube. When I found out it was a suit I was on it!

Cognac color aside, I like the blazer because it has an inside pocket. It also has nice quality buttons and a good weight to it. The pants need tailoring. They pucker a bit in the front, which I’m conveniently hiding with my hands in my pockets. Overall the color is worth the small issues that can definitely be fixed anyway.

The shirt I have on is from Uniqlo and isn’t really anything special, but works as a nice white button down for any suit.

These shoes were a real shocker in how well they matched the suit. I bought them because I’m forever looking to buy brown-girl friendly nude shoes. Nine West released the nude series for Tatiana and a few other shoes earlier this year and I was on it. These compliment my skin tone but still aren’t quite nude on me like my Calvin Klein Gayles that I’ll feature in a later post. Would you wear this cognac suit and do a similar look?

If you want to actually see the suit in action, here’s my latest YouTube video where I have it on:
