    We’ve seen the chic pant suit go away, but the classic to-die-for Yves Saint Laurent smoking jacket pant suit will endure as a timeless staple, and that man-tailored look is right in fashion.

      You can mix up jacket and pant separates as a pantsuit but the NEW paint suit looks more modern when it’s unmatched.

    • Sharon prefers pant suits that are more man-tailored rather than super feminine ones that look aging.
    • A woman in simple mens suit with high heels is very sexy to play up the mansuline/feminine yin and yang.
    • Avoid very done up hair with menswear looks.
    • When you wear sexy power suits, you need to wear a heel to avoid looking frumpy.
    • A suit jacket with a matching or very bold vest and men’s pants is great.
    • Classic tailored shirts, worn a bit open.
    • Always rough up the feminine and sweeten up the tough!

    Sharon is wearing a Rag and Bone jacket, Dolce & Gabanna shirt, and a vintage Yves Saint Laurent scarf, her own of course.

    Sharon Haver is the founder and editor in chief of Brad Boles is the editor at large and also a reappearing cast member and Jill Zarin‘s gay husband on The Real Housewives of New York City.
