Christian Dior – Structured, sleek, and structured two buttons, this combination feels especially modern with an equally clean-lined shoes and accessories. The key to looking chic and put-together in a skirt suit is to find one that fits you correctly, both jacket and skirt. If your suit bunches or pinches when you sit down, you likely need a different size. The suit should move easily with you when you sit, raise your arms, or twist.
