Like many of the iconic fashion trends of bygone eras, power suits are baaack. Invented in the 1920s by Coco Chanel and made popular in the 1980s by Giorgio Armani and Anne Klein, the coordinated pantsuit (usually a more fashion-forward version of your traditional business suit) also just happens to be our new favorite wedding guest attire trend. With this in mind, we searched the web high and low to find the best dressy pantsuits for wedding guests—for every budget and personal style. Unsure of how to find the best power suit for you? Consider the wedding dress code, theme and time of year. If you're attending a more casual summer "I do's", go for breathable fabrics like linen and seersucker. For black-tie nuptials taking place in winter, opt for heavier fabrics like velvet or satin (bonus points for incorporating festive embellishments like crystals, feathers or pearls).
