Soft Tailoring Is the Easiest Outfit You’ll Wear This Spring


For those who like to prioritize polish over comfort (or vice versa), there’s an option in which one doesn’t have to choose. Thanks to this season’s selection of gloriously chic and effortlessly stylish tailoring, you can now have the best of both. Cut in soft and lightweight linens and twills, spring’s oversized blazer and loose-fit trouser pairings will have you itching to get back to the office, even if you’ve decided to work remote for good.

Over the past year, we’ve advocated for wearing a pair of suit trousers instead of leggings or lounge pants as a solid WFH alternative. Take your pick between pleated, tapered, balloon leg, or belted, or even a pair of Bermuda-length trouser shorts. And on top, a quick addition of a blazer and a pair of sculptural earrings for virtual meetings will have your colleagues doing a double-take.

One also needn’t limit these comfortable suits strictly to a 9 to 5. Laidback tailoring has always been a long-time favorite among minimally-minded street style stars and it Girls. And thanks to their clean, coordinated look and untraditional fit, you can easily wear one on a date, at a museum, for outdoor dining, and beyond. They look just as chic with heeled sandals as they do sneakers, with office totes or mini bags with sleek low buns or baseball caps.

With an optimistic sense of re-emergence in the air, there’s really no better time to re-introduce the subtly cool wardrobe staple back into your spring outfit rotation. Our guide to 11 soft suiting looks at every price, below.
