How to Choose Pinstripe Suit for a Women

Few things are more model than a well-made pinstripe suit, whether it is a formless jacket and pleated trousers or a fitted jacket and pant. Popularized in the 1940s by movie stars like Rosalind Russell and made fashionable again by the television character "Ally McBeal," a tailored suit is still both dominant and feminine. If you intend to buy a pinstripe suit, there are a few clothes you should know. The steps below will help you choose a pinstripe suit that is ideal for you.

You can't purchase a well-fitting suit if you are unsure about your actual size. American designers and manufacturer each size to an exacting model, so a size 6 in one label could be a 4 or an 8 in another. Knowing your bust, waist, hip, inseam and sleeve length will help a salesperson fit you suitably.

A good pinstripe suit is a benefit, but you shouldn't need a loan to pay for it. The cost should be directly proportional to the suit's value. A classic, subtle cut in a good fabric that can be worn more than a few days a week with different accessories is worth paying more for than a flashy, trendy suit that you can only wear on sure occasions.
