Elle Woods wore the pink tweed suits and just recently the character Devya off of Royal Pains wore a Jackie O style suit for her engagement party and I'm stumped on where to purchase one. I would like one to wear to work. Any ideas on what they're called and where to get one? This is what I'm looking for, well something similar. And here's Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in this style of suit. Thank you. --TT"
Taniya, I don't think (though I could be wrong) that this specific style of suit has a name; Chanel defined the (tweed) skirt suit as we know it today, and it's a classic style that's fairly easy to find, although usually expensive. I've rounded up six ladies-who-lunch suits for you. Enjoy!
