Are Colorful Pantsuits Actually Sexy?

Think pantsuits are just for 9-5ers who can’t get away with jeans in the office? Think again!

Last week we honored Blake Lively with a PEOPLE Summer Style Award for her red-hot two-piece getup; she wore Michael Kors to promote her new film Savages in New York. And ever since then, it seems everyone in Hollywood is getting in on the not-so-corporate-anymore trend.

Recently, Mandy Moore was spotted at a Dove event wearing a suit, but eschewing the traditional black or navy color, opting instead for a head-to-toe cream ensemble finished with leopard-print platforms.

And Harper’s Bazaar cover girl Rihanna also recently rocked a red suit with pink accents while in London.

You don’t have to secretly hope your office adopts a pantsuit policy to try the look, though; this workplace staple is now appropriate for date night, brunch with the girls and everything in between — as long as you go with an unexpected hue. Tell us: Do you think colored pantsuits are hot? Would you wear one?

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
