From Bella to Zendaya, Here’s How Celebs Are Styling Spring’s Most Beloved Trend

Season after season, no matter how many new trends there happen to be, there’s always one thing that sticks around. Of course, fashion is naturally cyclical—it’s why Y2K fashion is back and thriving, and mini-skirts have made a triumphant return. Nevertheless, there is always one style that manages to transcend the trend cycle, and that just so happens to be the case with suiting. I can’t lie and say that suits are some groundbreaking trend. However, it’s clear through looking at SS22 and AW22 collections that while suits aren’t new, they certainly aren’t boring. And I know I’m not the only one who thinks so, it’s every celeb’s go-to look. I can’t recall a past red carpet outfit or a street-style moment that didn’t include a celebrity donning a suit. Suits in all their forms (from matching sets to single blazers) are the beloved staple that we just can’t ditch. And really, do we want to? Suiting always manages to toy the line perfectly between timeless and trendy, feminine and masculine, functional and fashionable. But if you’re not sold on the power of great suiting, keep reading as I’ve rounded up 15 suit outfit ideas from celebrities. You can consider these looks a lesson plan in not only how to wear a suit but ways to update this wardrobe staple based on some of spring’s biggest trends of the moment. 

WHO: Zendaya Coleman. WHAT: Pertegaz . Ah, Zendaya, is it even a roundup of stylish celebrities without her? While she’s never one to shy away from serving a look, this suit number is a personal favorite. Embracing suiting is so much better when you’re pairing it with other major trends of the moment; like bright colors and short hemlines. Just make sure you balance out the look by opting for a polished neckline and shoe.

WHO: Dua Lipa. WHAT: Dion Lee Leather Single Link Bra ($472) and matching pants; Hannah Jewett Puddle Play Earrings ($250); Givenchy Mini Cut-Out Leather Bag ($2055). So often, when we think of suiting, it very much fits inside a nicely tailored box of everything matching. But style icons like Dua Lipa have shown you can spice up a suit by pairing it with more risqué pieces. Simply take that tie-up bra top and matching pants and style it with a blazer in a matching hue for a night out. You’ll be levitating in this look.

WHO: Gabrielle Union. WHAT: Christopher John Rogers Plaid and Stripe Wool Suit Jacket ($1995), Combination Wide-Leg Trousers ($1375), and Slit-Sleeves Dotted Shirt ($1650); Tamara Mellon Heels.  What better way to spice up your little black suit than by injecting some color this season? With so many bright hues dominating SS22 collections, all you have to do is pick a color and go for it. And if you want to lean into it, then take a cue from Gabrielle Union and mix a subtly printed suit with a colorful blouse and pumps for a look that’s bolder than ever.

WHO: Bella Hadid. WHAT: Kiko Kostadinov Suit; Dion Lee Cut-Out Interlock Tank Top ($330); Dilara Findikoglu Boleyn Necklace ($221).  As usual, Bella Hadid serves up a street-style moment worth replicating at home. Pair your printed suit with a simple cutout tank, layer on the jewelry, and a fun pair of sunglasses, and you’ll feel like you’re a supermodel too. 

WHO: Cardi B. WHAT: Casablanca Suit. One of the easiest ways to make suiting feel fresh for spring is by playing with color blocking like Cardi B. Don’t be afraid to embrace your drip by pairing contrasting colors into your suit, it will scream money.

WHO: Sydney Sweeney . WHAT: Balmain . A tweed suit on Sydney Sweeney? About it. While tweed suits have been around for a while, opting for a set with a mini skirt and finishing off the look with a pair of knee-high boots is hot, hot, hot. 

WHO: Beyoncé . WHAT: Louis Vuitton Cyclone Sunglasses; Ivy Park x Adidas Suit, Bra and Sneakers.  If anyone can make a dressed-down suit still feel like a moment, it’s Beyoncé. While we may never attain queen status, replicating this suit ensemble is easy. Pair your favorite printed sports bra with a printed suit and sneakers, and you’ll look like you woke up that fabulous.

WHO: Kourtney Kardashian. WHAT: Paul & Joe Suit. Waistcoats have been bubbling up as a micro trend for a hot minute now, but we recommend replicating this look from Kourtney Kardashian if you want to take this trend to a whole new level. Simply opt for a vest with matching low-rise trousers in a bright saturated hue to make this suiting staple stand out.

WHO: Tessa Thompson. WHAT: David Koma. If you don’t want to get too matchy-matchy with your suiting this spring, then remember that you can always style your go-to blazer with another piece. I’m personally trying to replicate this look from Tessa Thompson by pairing a mini dress with a saffron blazer for the perfect day-to-night look.

WHO: Rosalía. WHAT: Thom Browne Suit; Versace Intrico Platform Loafers ($1425). Who said all your suits had to have trousers? This matching Thom Browne look on Rosalía is the perfect example of making a skirt suit work. Simply opt for a matching set (printed or otherwise) and pair it with a tank and some platforms for a chic spring ensemble.

WHO: Normani. WHAT: Off-White . Who said suits couldn’t have a wild side? If celebrities like Normani have taught us anything, it’s that the suit can be sultry. Simply take a cue from some of spring’s most prominent trends and pair a leather blazer with a matching mini-skirt and knee-high boots.

WHO: Megan Fox . WHAT: Roberta Einer Suit; Femme Sandals; Forbitches Bag.  What’s better than a suit? A leather suit. What’s better than a leather suit? A printed leather suit. And what’s better than a printed leather suit? Megan Fox in one, ofc. If you were looking for a fresh way to style your suits this spring, consider your query solved.

WHO: Chlöe Bailey. WHAT: D&G Suit; Amina Muaddi Pumps.  When thinking about suiting, you have to remember that the best way to style a suit lies in the details—it’s all about texture, color, and layering. No, look better displays this than this all-pink look from Chlöe Bailey. Simply pick a color you love or a statement fabric like tweed, sequins, or moiré and let the suit do the rest of the work for you.

WHO: Hailey Bieber . WHAT: Balenciaga Logo Embroidered Cotton Baseball Hat ($395); Vetements Houndstooth Plaid Wool-Blend Blazer ($1853); Wardrobe NYC Oversized Cotton Hoodie ($400); Balenciaga Runner Sneakers ($1150). Hailey Bieber shows us yet again that adopting trends don’t need to be a whole thing—simply embrace the “incognito” aesthetic found on SS22 runways, and go for a non-attention grabbing styling of your suit with a hoodie, baseball cap, and sneakers.

WHO: Priyanka Chopra. WHAT: Jennifer Fisher Law Hoop Earrings; Sergio Hudson Crepé Blazer ($1595) and pants; Jimmy Choo Pumps. You’ve made it to the end and hopefully found ample inspiration on how to style your suit for the spring. But just in case you need a little extra guidance, just look at Priyanka Chopra in this head-to-toe saffron suit. This look is a reminder that a crisp monochrome suit in the season’s hottest color will always stun.
