Work Edit: Trendy Summer Pantsuit

August 11, 2020

This pistachio colored summer pantsuit caught my eye the moment I saw it and I can safely say that it has become my favorite suit! Pistachio is a trending color this summer and is a great shade to wear to work since it’s muted tone is professional but it allows you to take a break from the sea of navy and black!

I’ve always had a lot of success with H&M pant suits; I find the fit is really flattering – I like the length of the blazers and the fabrics are always good quality. This pant suit is no exception! The blazer is great quality and fits like a dream. The pants, in true H&M fashion, run true to H&M sizing – which is 2 sizes bigger than most stores. Ie. I wear a 6 in most stores but almost always wear a 10 at H&M. These pistachio pants are a 10!

I styled this suit for this outfit with a white blouse and gold accessories. I also like it with camel / light brown or even navy! Pistachio is a surprisingly versatile work day color, especially as a trendy summer pantsuit!

I’m keeping today’s post short & sweet because, while I may be talking about work wear here on LLB, I’m actually still on vacation! On deck for today: swimming with my nephew, decorating masks with my niece, and hopefully getting some downtime to read a book on the porch swing! I’m currently reading Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams. I’m actively working to read more books by Black women and people of Color and this book came highly recommended. It’s one of NPR’s “Best Books of 2019!”

On one last thing – be sure to follow along with my posts in the free app – I’ve been sharing a ton of outfit ideas there and tons of pieces from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’ll be sharing more on the Nordstrom Sale here on LLB when it opens to the public next week; but if you are one of the lucky people who can shop early access definitely follow me on because I have tons and tons of round-ups and recommended picks for you!

    When you shared the blazer in one of your other posts, I was instantly in love. The color is gorgeous and the style is so flattering. I love seeing the whole suit like this. You styled it perfectly, of course! H&M is my favorite place to shop, so it’s fun to see how other people shop from them!

    • Lee says:

      Aw thanks Stephanie! I love H&M too – and I really like how H&M cuts their blazers, they are definitely my favorite place to buy affordable blazers. The length is that exact perfect sweet spot to look flattering!

  8. The heat and humidity would not allow me to be in a suit outside in summer … You look great in the suit and that color looks good on you!


    • Lee says:

      Aw thank you! And yeah, I wouldn’t wear a full suit in summer if I didn’t have to for work – it definitely gets warm!

  17. Great suit, I love the colour! I’ve found H&M sizing a bit tricky too, it seems to vary a lot depending on the style. Thanks for linking up!

    I absolutely love this color on you! Where is your pretty white top from? I don’t see it linked, but maybe I missed it

    • Lee says:

      Aw thank you!! It’s not linked because it’s an old piece from SheIn and I’m not supporting/promoting them anymore. I’m not sure if you saw on my IG but I talked about my decision to part ways with them and end my collaboration (I’d been working with them for 4 years) because of some concerning allegations about the treatment of workers and then them creating some racist products. So, I still wear the clothes I have from them (Because it would make no sense to throw clothes away) but I’m not getting anything new from them and am not promoting the items I do still wear. Hope that makes sense!!

    Love the color of this suit!! So great for summer and much more interesting than the typical blue or black!
