Despite the term, “trouser suit” which had been used in Britain during the First World War, with reference to women working in heavy industry, the pantsuit was introduced in the 1920s, when a small number of women adopted a masculine style, including pantsuits, hats, canes and monocles.

 

With time, pant suits for women became increasingly widespread in the 1960s with designers such as Foale and Tuffin in London and Luba Marks in the United States spearheading the trend shortly followed by Yves Saint-Laurent’s Le Smoking in 1966 an evening pantsuit for women that mimicked a man’s tuxedo.

 

A century after women could be arrested for wearing pants, the two-piece pant ensemble still reflects the aspirations of women seeking to defy gender norms and incites the ire of those intent on keeping us in our place.

Today, we lay at the bosom of style and experiment at the Cigar Lounge in Epicure Restaurant, Sandton in every way we want because we can. Danica is wearing our signature straight-cut tailored pantsuit worn with an abstract-peplum jacket and a waist-coat.

 

You have so many ways to make this look work for you based on your movement and plans while interchanging elements of the ensemble or wearing it as you see it here. Take a chance and throw on a collared shirt or a tie-neck blouse for a more formal look paired with this pant suit or glam it up with our beaded bralette. Either way you see fit, here’s a timeless treat for to quench your style thirst.
