Prettiest Resort 2016 Stella McCartney Look 8 Crisply Tailored Jacket & Pant Suit w Floral Embroidery

The twin of this suit was shown for Look 8 of the Resort 2016 Stella McCartney collection. I think it was the strongest look of the show and I love that Stella herself loved it so much that she wore a version to the show. Karlie Kloss also wore one and having all these reference photos gives you a great idea of what it looks like once on the body. It is a great suit that is both an amazing basic but with a pop and some personality. I love it.

This suit is the perfect example on how to take a classic, basic set and really add details to make it outstanding. It is made from a fine black wool that is just heavy enough to hold the shape, but not so heavy that it is uncomfortable when worn. The jacket is precisely cut and tailored. Sleeves are cut long and simple and the shoulders are structured with a small amount of padding inside to hold the shape. The front lapel is shaped and notched with a nod to a tuxedo in shape. It is cut so that it comes in at the waist and flares out a bit at the hip. It has a touch of an oversized shape to it in comparison to the cut of the pants. Though I feel that when you see it on my dress form this feels more emphasized then how it is in real life. You can see in the reference photos that once it is on a body it has a really nice balance. A slit pocket sits on one breast and it still has its original hidden tacking in place. Two flat pockets sit on each hip and they also have their tacking in place. The pants play on a classic men's pant. They have a flat front with a banded waist and two tiny curved faux slip pockets high on the hip just under the waistband. They are cut to sit slightly low on the hip. There is a sharp fold running down the front and back of the pants. The pants narrow down and then have a tiny flare at their bottom. They might sit slightly cropped depending on your height. I love that you can wear these together or break the set up and mix and match with pieces in your existing wardrobe. The suit appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition. 

The jacket is lined her signature black slightly ribbed lining fabric and the pants are unlined. The jacket closes with two buttons at the front as seen. The pants zip to close and then have a hidden button and hook and eye at the band of the waist. All the pockets on the jacket have their original tacking. The jacket is tagged a McCartney 44 and the pants a size 42.
