How and Where to Buy a Women’s Pantsuit: Tips From a Costume Designer

We got tips straight from the minds behind the power-dressing looks on “The Bold Type,” “Younger,” “Set It Up” and “The Good Fight.”

Welcome to Pop Culture Week! While you can always find us waxing poetic about the hefty overlap between fashion and pop culture, we’re dedicating the next five days to the subject of our favorite music, movies, TV, celebrities, books and theater, and how that all intersects with the fashion industry.

Pantsuits have not only been a dominant trend on recent runways (and red carpets and wedding aisles), but the power-dressing sets have also taken over both the big and small screens, from Cate Blanchett‘s criminally chic suiting as thieving mastermind Lou in “Ocean’s 8” to Liza’s (Sutton Foster) sleek ice blue moment that helped jolt Charles (Peter Hermann) into getting his shit together on “Younger.” 

“It was her way of basically saying ‘screw you’ to Charles and look at the real me,” says the TV Land show’s costume designer Jacqueline Demeterio. “‘I am a strong, 40-something-year-old woman who knows how to take care of business.’ That suit exuded strength and the color was so sensational — it was one of my favorite looks of the season.” 

There is also the cast of millennials in media power-dressing for the jobs they want on “The Bold Type.” Kat (Aisha Dee) attended Paris Fashion Week in an ivory-and-black brocade Gucci suit that she likely borrowed from the Scarlet magazine fashion closet — either that, or she found an impossibly good deal on The RealReal. “It changes the way people look at you when you enter a room,” says costume designer Lisa Frucht, over the phone from Montreal, where she’s shooting the third season of the Freeform series.
