Shay Mitchell’s crushed velvet pantsuit just became our new office-chic obsession

Sure, we see gorgeous gowns on the red carpet all the time that we *wish* we could wear IRL. Except that with a general lack of red carpet occasions in our everyday lives, we wouldn’t exactly have a place to wear said red carpet dresses. But thanks to our style hero Shay Mitchell, we’ve just discovered a new red carpet look that’s totally office-chic and ~just~ the thing our work wardrobe’s been missing.

Lo and behold: the crushed velvet pantsuit. It’s a perfectly trendy fabric worked into a classic silhouette.

And while it may look a little more fall-appropriate, trust us on this one: This two-piece velvet suit will definitely keep you looking cool *(but feeling nice and toasty)* in chilly offices 365-days a year. Score!


Ms. Mitchell donned the sleek Frame number to the Shorty Awards in New York City earlier this week, pairing the navy “Mod Blazer” with a buttoned-down white blouse. As for the bottoms, the cropped flare cut of the coordinating trousers gave a youthful vibe to this sophisticated silhouette.


With such a powerful pantsuit, the Pretty Little Liars star kept accessories to a minimum, slipping on a few gold rings and a pair of pointed toe Jimmy Choo pumps.

Now, this look is simple. It’s sharp, and it’s sophisticated. Ergo, the trifecta of office outfit styles. And while shay’s exact velvet pantsuit may be a *smidge* at the top end of our budget, we’re totally keeping this look in mind when we make our next trek to the mall!
