Suiting Goes "Office Siren" Sexy At Schiaparelli
Suiting Goes "Office Siren" Sexy At Schiaparelli Spotlight

The "Office Siren" aesthetic is the latest TikTok sensation. The social media fashion trend is a nod to dressing like a boss in a chic power suit, or business-core if you will. Only this sultry new take is about bringing sexy back to the office thanks to casual oversized blazers, fitted blouses and tuxedo style shirts tucked into sleek (or baggy) trousers, pencil skirts (mini and midi) and paired with a necktie (yep, even for the ladies) slinky stilettos or kitten heels, pantyhose and an it-bag (or cool satchel briefcase). And well, while you're at it, add some statement specs and a sophisticated lazy girl bun, as Sofia Richie Grainge just made famous.

Inspired by the late 90s and early 00s era — when Tom Ford for Gucci thrust sexy suiting back into the spotlight — Office Siren dressing also has us thinking of The Devil Wears Prada. Or rather supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who played Serena, in the hit fashion flick, what with her smart meets sexy take on office attire. The moment she made her cameo on screen, Bündchen's Serena exudes an air of effortless elegance, her wardrobe a masterclass in understated sexy chic.

A wardrobe classic, tailored, deconstructed, slouchy, oversized pants and skirt suits were also a key trend on the Fall/Winter 2024 runways with designers like Schiaparelli, Kenzo, Victoria Beckham, and Max Mara, all playing with corporate style codes: the necktie.

When it comes to boss ladies we're also conjuring up the images of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden at the recent State of The Union Address, whose fashion choices spoke volumes. The Vice President looked like a fashion force in a sharply cut Alexander McQueen black suit, Saint Laurent cream blouse, and suede Manolo Blahnik pumps. Flotus meanwhile was an image of empowered modern elegance in a mint green Ralph Lauren skirt suit which she accented with chic drop earrings, layers of gold bangles, and a vintage-inspired brooch.

As you curate your corporate-core wardrobe, remember to embrace tailored sophistication, modern sensibility, and unapologetic individuality. Because, in the immortal words of Miranda Priestly herself, "Fashion is not about utility. An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity."
