When it comes to everyday personal style, it’s easy to default to the more casual things; a T-shirt and jeans can feel like a no-brainer. But sometimes you want something a little more elevated than a fitted top and loose denim. Enter: the humble suit. It’s a wardrobe staple that shouldn’t be overlooked — whether or not you go to an office each morning.

Though the suit is traditionally associated with menswear and workwear, it’s high time that perspective changed. There’s much more to the category than formal black tie or boring boxy work blazers, including vibrant pops of color, compelling shapes to emphasize different parts of the body and uniquely used fabrics.

Need some inspiration? Below, we’ve curated seven different examples on how to zhuzh up a classic matching set. From non-cheesy double denim to multi-colored, mismatched sets, we’ve got you covered.

Denim-on-denim outfits don’t have to look straight out of your dad’s clothing archives. Instead of going for a traditional light-wash, straight-cut jacket-and-jeans combination, opt for a darker denim set with more structure. Add some contrast by including pops of color with accessories.

Black Tie, But Make It Cool

Who said black tie suits have to be plain? Just because you’re limited in your color scheme doesn’t mean you can’t play with some additional accoutrements. A simple trouser with oversized bows at the bottom will make a classic look all the more playful.

If you’re looking to recreate that oversized trouser-and-jacket look that all the “It” girls have achieved (i.e. Hailey Bieber, Matilda Djerf), a flowy, lightweight jacket and longer-than-usual pants are the way to do it. Pair the loose-fitted suit with a lacy bralette or body chain to really pull off the effortlessly sexy vibe.
