Where To Buy A Woman's Suit For Prom, Because Glitter & Tulle Isn't For Everyone

If wearing a glitzy, sequin-covered dress to the prom just isn't your thing, you might want to try out the menswear trend by rocking a suit instead. Today's suits for women are impeccably tailored, totally chic, and anything but basic, so they'll definitely make you stand out in the crowd of taffeta and sweetheart necklines.

If you're worried about finding the perfect women's suit in your small town mall's limited options, don't be. A number of popular fast fashion retailers are jumping on the suit trend, and for very good reason. Many affordable mall staple stores know how edgy and flattering a suit looks on a woman's frame, and they also know that there are bold style mavens like you who want to wear them to their high school proms. For much less than the cost of a pricey prom dress, you can invest in a versatile suit that you'll want to wear long after prom is over.

Check out these accessible options for the perfect prom-ready suit. Just pair with your highest heels or your favorite pair of high-top sneakers — and don't forget to bring some attitude.

Fresh and White

It’s no surprise that everyone’s favorite trendy, affordable mall store also makes a great women’s suit. This stark white option from H&M features a cinched belt and tailored trousers that looks supremely cool on everyone.

Jacket with Belt, $50, H&M

Suit Pants, $35, H&M

Pretty In Pastel

Channel your inner Jenny Lewis or Rachel Antonoff in a pretty pastel pink suit. Because is there anything better than looking like a sexy Golden Girl at the prom?

Straight Cut Blazer, $149, Zara

Dress Up Stripes

This striped suit comes with either shorts or pants, depending on how much leg you want to show. I picture it with a pop of color in the shoes and maybe even some sunglasses at night.

Horizontal Stripe Knit Blazer, $108, Express

High Waisted Striped Short, $60, Express

The Jumpsuit

If a traditional menswear-inspired suit is a bit too bulky, try a jumpsuit with a structured collar and suit shape. The blend of masculine and feminine styles is perfect for the prom.

Collared Surplice Jumpsuit, $33, Forever 21

Classic Black

The classic black suit is, IMHO, one of the most swoon-worthy outfits in a man’s wardrobe — and now it can be in your’s, too. Pair it with a traditional collared shirt underneath or get a bit daring with a slim-fitting bustier.

The Patterned Suit

A multicolored floral suit might be a little too casual for prom, but one in black and white? So, so chic.

Cigarette Textured Pants in Floral, $63, ASOS

The Not-So-Classic Pinstripes

This classic-meets-grunge ensemble will last you way beyond prom night.
