Dress like the ‘Suits’
The sharpest looking show on TV is back. Season 4 of Suits premieres internationally today and we’ve cleared our schedules for the evening. But take a moment and look past Harvey Specter’s sexy charisma, and the drama of Mike Ross leaving Pearson Specter – and you’ll see that the show has some serious fashion potential. From Jessica Pearson strutting down to the courtroom in Christian Louboutin heels, to Rachel Zane toting the latest Saint Laurent bag to the firm, the show’s chock-full of fashion options for your next corporate meeting. Whether you’re the boss lady like Jessica, or the power secretary like Donna, we’ve decoded each character’s signature style to give you the low-down on trendy workwear. Power dressing and powerful women – it’s TV-meets-fashion heaven.
Click through the gallery above to see how you can dress like Jessica, Donna and Rachel.
Managing partner at Pearson Specter and the queen bee, it’s only natural that Jessica Pearson’s ensembles play the part. Far from boring and stereotypically corporate, her meticulously tailored suits exude power and elegance, but retain a feminine sensibility. If there ever was an inspiration to head your own law firm, Pearson’s Lanvin Swarovski crystal eagle necklace is it.
Get the look: Opt for a skirt suit in statement colours, architectural silhouettes and clean lines – but have fun with the neckline.
Patent leather pumps, Rs 39,500, Christian Louboutin
Calfskin tote, Rs 53,000, Emporio Armani
Stone necklace, Rs 1,550, Pipa + Bella
If you think Donna Paulsen’s only job is to file (and she does it meticulously), then you’re missing the plot. The redheaded secretary – nay, Harvey’s right hand – gets it right every time, with fitted dresses and just a hint of femininity in the form of soft ruffles on the shoulders. Understated, powerful and sexy, Paulsen packs a punch with her wit and style.
Get the look: Wear a dress with an eye-catching silhouette in greys and blacks; think ruffles on the side or an interesting drape.

Paralegal Rachel Zane ups the ‘sexy’ quotient of the show. Her fitted separates enhance her figure (with a body like hers, why not?), and we’re all over her pencil skirts, classic button-down shirts and delicate gold necklaces. Zane makes preppy look hot.
Get the look: Team a fitted high-waist skirt with a sweater, a silk blouse or a simple white shirt.
