Welcome to Top Shelf, the series dedicated to the best and brightest fashion buys on the market. Watch this space to find the most worthy investments to live a stylish life.
Summer is almost officially over, which means one thing — ladies, it’s time to get back to work. Now that you have parted ways with your warm-weather weekend getaways, let’s turn our attention to checking off our to-dos. But getting down to brass tacks no longer requires a closet full of “menswear-inspired” duds that don’t have ladies in mind. In fact, the future and fashion are decidedly female, and now, thanks to the women over at Argent, there is the perfect pantsuit to match your ambition.
Argent popped on the scene in 2016 and has since made a name for itself as a one-stop women’s workwear revolution, designed to make taking your seat at the table a whole lot more trend-right. But before you get hooked on ’80s-era vibes, keep in mind that this isn’t a line full of your mom’s boxy blazers. From double-breasted jackets to slim lapel suiting, Argent offers a slew of affordable, colorful, and flattering styles that champion functionality with a fabulous fit. It’s no wonder why the company is becoming the label of choice for women with corner offices — just ask Ali Pincus, the founder of One Kings Lane, Sandy Carter of Amazon, or even the OG pantsuit queen herself, Hilary Clinton.
Playful, but still professional, colorways — as seen here with the Double-Breasted Blazer ($328) and Wide Leg Trouser ($238) in fuschia — lend a youthful touch to the slightly oversized silo. If traditionally fitted styles are more your fancy, then opt for Argent’s signature Crossover Blazer ($328), now in rich hunter green or stunning tomato red, that is an updated classic made with the softest Turkish cotton blend fabrication. Since vanity sizing isn’t what they’re about, be sure to buy one size up.
At the heart of every design is an exhaustive attention to detail that will upgrade your workday for maximum efficiency. Case in point, each blazer is accented with Argent’s trademark 3XDRY finish for optimal wicking and fast-drying capabilities that is also breathable when things get a little tense in the conference room. Need more? Well, this Double Breasted Blazer ($328) in vanilla has a few tricks up its sleeve, er, lining. Having pens, pointers, or even a lipgloss at the ready has never been easier (or more foolproof) thanks to the built-in stylus pocket.
The zip media pocket (a feature in every blazer) employs a mesh front cutout so you can stay #connected at all times without negotiating your cute factor. So grab your credit cards and get ready to dropkick the glass ceiling in unparalleled style. Women of the world, it’s time to unite under the common goal of life, liberty, and the pursuit of fabulousness.
