Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice…It’s showtime. Anyone remember that movie?. It’s one of my favorites. Me and my cousins used to watch it when we were kids. Aside from the epic scene when they perform ‘Day O’ (banana boat song) at the dinner table. The thing that sticks out the most about that film is Beetlejucie’s stripe suit.
Even back then I thought, now that is a statement look. Although the suit he wears is slightly different. It still inspired me to get this similar outfit when I saw it. If the truth be told, I have been on the hunt for a stripe suit for a year. Literally a year, no exaggeration. I kept seeing ones I liked, but not the price I like. It was a struggle. But luckily, H&M released this bad boy and it was love at first sight. Plus they were also offering a 20% discount off the site that day, so it was a win win. Sometimes it pays to hold out and wait.
Not sure if you have noticed but I’m a total suit girl, even before suits were in season. There is something about a women in a trouser suit that is so badass. If I had it my way I would own way more, but that is something that I am currently working on. Suits are great investment pieces because you can mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe. Pants can be styled with denim or leather jackets. The blazer can be worn with jeans, a dress or skirts. The looks you can put together are endless.
I chose to wear the pieces together because I love a good statement look. Plus I waited so long to find something I liked, there was no way I wasn’t gonna wear it. As the stripes are so bold I opted to keep it simple. I paired it with a black polo neck and some black boots. When I have sometime I intend on styling this outfit with a pop of color, so stay tuned.
