How to Dress Like Rachel Zane from Suits

suits_charactergallery_rachel_02

I love Suits for it’s amazing work fashion. Every character has an amazing sense of style and a covetable work wardrobe. Like I’ve said before, no matter what your profession there’s lots of great fashion inspiration on Suits for work. Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) is  a paralegal on the show Suits who befriends and then dates the show’s protagonist, Mike Ross. She has plans to eventually become a lawyer at her firm, and wants to do so without the help of her father who is a famous trial attorney. I would describe Rachel’s style as sexy office chic. Women who work in conservative offices probably couldn’t get away with some of the tops that she wears. However anyone can take inspiration from the way that she mixes classic pieces and adds a more youthful edge to them.  Here’s how to dress like Rachel Zane:

Combine V-Neck Shirts and Sweaters with Pencil Skirts

This is Rachel’s go to office look.  Her  tops pair well with her classic pencil skirts and pumps but the v-neck silhouette gives her outfits a sexier, less conservative vibe. The women in Suits can get away with a lot. In real life this is a great combo for a business casual office  as long as the neckline isn’t too low, and your skirt is not too form fitting.

A button down and pencil skirt will always be a timeless, professional office look. Rachel looks classic but stylish by rolling up her sleeves and letting the edges poke up just a bit.
