If I had to choose my favorite animal print, cheetah would be at the top of my list. It’s versatile, fun, and has totally made a comeback as today’s newest neutral. It’s this season’s must-have print. When you combine this print with the sleek construction of a power suit, you have achieved the ultimate look for this Fall’s printed power suiting trend. Liv Micheli is in Greenwich, CT wearing the Frame Cheetah Velveteen Classic Blazer, Frame Cheetah Velveteen Flare pants, Are You Am I Ling Top, Vintage Gold Mesh Belt from Etsy, and Public Desire Velvet boots.

Women’s pantsuits have come a long way since Yves Saint Laurent designed the first of its kind – the Le Smoking tuxedo suit in 1966. Since then, the matching separates have been reimagined in modern silhouettes, bright hues, and fierce prints. Taking notes from the early-90’s minimalistic power suits, Frame has created a modern iteration of the cheetah power suit. When I saw Frame’s Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear, I loved the textured outerwear and velvet suiting, as they were unlike anything that I have seen from the brand.Liv Micheli is in Greenwich, CT wearing the Frame Cheetah Velveteen Classic Blazer, Frame Cheetah Velveteen Flare pants, Are You Am I Ling Top, Vintage Gold Mesh Belt from Etsy, and Public Desire Velvet boots. I remember my first cheetah print piece. I was five and it was a furry oversized cheetah jacket, from a store called Talbots and it was all I wore. No matter what, that little cheetah print jacket was all I wanted to wear because even at five, those spots made me feel powerful and very in style! I still have that jacket, but I thought it was time for an upgrade.Liv Micheli is in Greenwich, CT wearing the Frame Cheetah Velveteen Classic Blazer, Frame Cheetah Velveteen Flare pants, Are You Am I Ling Top, Vintage Gold Mesh Belt from Etsy, and Public Desire Velvet boots.

This velvety cheetah blazer is tailored with a slim classic silhouette but takes on a more exotic look with a bold cheetah print. When I first slipped it on, I instantly loved the fit, length and the padded shoulders, which gives the body definition and a more feminine look.

When I tell you that these pants fit me like I a glove, I mean that I haven’t found a pair of cropped flared pants quite like these. Whenever I try cropped flared pants, they always end up being too cropped. I am 5’9”, so cropped usually means ‘capri’ pants for me. But that was not the case for this particular pair from Frame. The cropped length is perfect and the positioning of the flare is extremely flattering on the leg. This silhouette sits high on the waist, which you know I love, and the soft velvety fabric makes them extremely comfortable, with a bit of stretch. These pants are unlike anything I’ve seen from Frame, and I literally want this style in every color, fabric, and print because they are really that good.

I initially tried on the look with a simple white t-shirt, which gave it a more effortless and casual feel. But when I first saw this suit, I always envisioned styling it with something unexpected, like a one-shoulder top. The asymmetrical hint of skin at the top and the cropped midriff is very modern and helps to break up the all cheetah suit. I like how these pants feature belt loops, and a vintage gold mesh belt paired perfectly with the overall look. The gold belt compliments the golden yellow tones running through the print, without overpowering it. Velvet sock boots helped to create a streamlined and polished look, as the only hint of skin comes from the one shoulder top.Liv Micheli is in Greenwich, CT wearing the Frame Cheetah Velveteen Classic Blazer, Frame Cheetah Velveteen Flare pants, Are You Am I Ling Top, Vintage Gold Mesh Belt from Etsy, and Public Desire Velvet boots.

Whether you’re thinking of wearing the suit together, or each piece separately, you can’t go wrong. You can style the jacket with a simple pair of Frame denim and heels. These cheetah pants would look edgy with a cool vintage tee and boots or for a more sleek look, a turtleneck and loafers will give you that model off-duty look. Regardless, you will without a doubt have a polished and powerful look that will show stop.

I really hope you enjoyed this post! You can shop this look and similar items below!
