DKNY's Fall 2014 Collection Modernizes the Suit

The motto for DKNY's Fall 2014 collection must have been "suit up," because simply looking at the styles made us want to rock an updated three-piece ensemble. However, Donna Karan turned the trend on its head by scrambling traditional patterns, adding metallic elements and bringing back the mini skirt. A modernized suit may be 2014's version of last year's tuxedo trend.

We love the idea of spicing up a traditional three-piece suit with an informal tee shirt underneath and a sporty fur-embellished coat on top.
