This was one of those great purchases from Bebe years ago! I love that Bebe suits always tend to have unique details, like the back ruffle on this blazer. It almost creates a peplum, which as I’m sure you’ve seen, is a big trend right now. Because the suit is pinstriped, I paired with a simpler white T. The rhinestone neckline adds a little sparkle without being distracting.

Unfortunately you do have to be careful that Bebe suits don’t slip into the realm of inappropriate for the office with miniskirts, shorts, lacing and the like. Thankfully, mine managed to stay on trend and is still office appropriate. Although Bebe doesnt have any similar suiting now, this jacket and these crops would make an edgy statement but still be appropriate for a less conservative but still business-attired office.

As you can see, it was a windy day in the windy city! Fall is definitely on its way!
