It has always been a part of our lives, timeless and classy, but the tailored pantsuit is making a strong fashion statement this year. From the Red Carpet to casual, smart wear, you don’t need a formal pretext to get your tailored pantsuit out of the closet!
We last talked about all all-white outfit for this season’s hot trends and now it’s time to join the dark side of fashion with Jennifer Connelly in black Saint Laurent outfit (head to toes). Starring in Noah gained her a lot of attention (controversy as well) and she was recently photographed alongside her daughter on a casual sunny day: Jennifer Connelly was stunning in a black pantsuit!

What was she wearing, you might ask: ‘Le Smoking’ jacket from Saint Laurent paired with tailored skinny suit pants, equally from Saint Laurent, bow georgette blouse (also Saint Laurent) and kitten heels patent leather black shoes – you guessed it, also from Saint Laurent!
Although looking modern and classic at the same time, Jennifer chose items designed by Hedi Slimane for the fashion house formally known as Yves Saint Laurent (Rive Gauche). I’m always looking up at Jennifer Connelly as she seems to master the art of style with effortless elegance and this time it’s no different, her outfit is something I’d love to wear as it identifies with my style outlines.
There is one observation, though: which runs through the bank, of course! The iconic Le Smoking jacket worn by Jennifer costs almost $3,000, the very elegant pants are $850, the lavaliere blouse is $10 short of $1,300 while the pumps are $795. So if you want to wear the exact same outfit as Jennifer Connelly, it will cost you at least $6,000! Now the good thing about trends du jour is that they can also be found in more than just exclusive boutiques. The first thing that crossed my mind was Mango and the suits & blouses I’ve seen in a lookbook that will not set you back more than $300 and a pair of patent ankle strap shoes from H&M with a $35 price tag.
