What's a suit, anyway?
In the hands of designers during Fashion Week, it might be as unconventional as long shorts and a jacket. Or as traditional as a skirt and blazer.
The focus now is on a matched set: the jacket still fitted -- belted or with a peplum -- and paired with a slim skirt or pants.
But the hottest suit on the runway was the pantsuit, long a staple of working women everywhere. Ralph Lauren's sharply tailored haberdashery pantsuits were fabulous (as were his loden jacket paired with matching leggings -- the new sharpest of the new suits!)
