First there was the power suit—and now, there is the wedding suit. Women's suiting has been trending way up the past few years, so of course the question on everyone's mind is where to buy women's suits. When it comes to weddings, high-end bridal labels like Ines Di Santo, Amsale, Karen Willis Holmes and Savannah Miller all offer gorgeous tailored pieces for the big day. But the look is not just for brides: Ladies are rocking suits as wedding guests and even as bridesmaids and groomswomen (another recent trend!).

There is, however, a pretty distinct difference between a suit you wear to the office and one you wear to a wedding (hint: wedding suits are a whole lot more fun—think color, cutouts and fashion-forward details); as well as differences between cocktail attire and black-tie-ready suiting. But note that no matter your suiting style, weddings are where you can punch up the look with fun and feminine accessories. Go shirtless under a buttoned blazer and add an eye-catching necklace (or a whole stack of them); pair a cropped tuxedo pant with a bold shoe; or mix and match pieces you might not otherwise pair.

Overall, suiting is about making the wearer feel empowered. Whether you're celebrating the most important day of your life or simply showing up in support, weddings are the perfect place for a statement-making suit.

Best Places to Buy Women's Suits

A quick search for the best places to buy women's suits will turn up hundreds, if not thousands, of options—but fear not: We've sifted through them for you. Culling from professional recommendations, hefty research and our fair share of personal experience, The Knot has narrowed it down to 11 retailers we love for women's wedding suits. Note that some of these spots exclusively hawk suiting—and will work with clients to tailor and customize the perfect ensemble—while others are diamonds in the rough; meaning suits aren't necessarily their bread and butter, but they're worth checking out on the off chance they have exactly what you're looking for. While you're browsing, you certainly might find looks for the office and other suit-worthy occasions, but we particularly love these shops for wedding-day wear.

1. Nadine Merabi

The British designer has only been releasing bridal collections since 2021, but she's quickly become the go-to for stylish bridal suiting. Her deep V blazers are perfectly punched up with detail—think: oversize pearl embellishments down the shoulder, an all-lace suit with see-through sleeves, or a something blue (and bedazzled!) blazer. It goes beyond the big day, too. Merabi's bridal range also includes chic strapless jumpsuits and cocktail-length dresses ideal for showers and rehearsal dinners, and a new bridal resort range has fresh looks for the honeymoon.

2. SuitShop

After starting it in 2016 as a menswear shop, the female founders of SuitShop transitioned it to include women's and nonbinary suiting in 2019. Their offerings are size-inclusive, gender-inclusive, affordable and oh-so-stylish. For weddings, we especially love the label's women's tuxedo, a chic single-button style with satin lapels in black, white or navy. And—bonus—they make the process easy: Clients can book virtual appointments, order fabric swatches and try the suit free for seven days before committing to forever.

If you're looking for a suit with personality, this online mega retailer is a must-hit. Its suiting options run the gamut from classic to cool, colorful and springy to bold and moody. There are cutouts, crop tops and patterns galore. A few faves? The ASOS Curve jacket, pants and bralette with an oversized black-and-white floral print; a sleeveless linen blazer in lemon yellow for summer soirees; and a sequined kimono-style suit for fancier affairs. Pro tip: When retailers offer such an extensive range you never know what you're going to get in terms of quality and fit. That said, ASOS' ordering process is quick and the return policy is generous, so order and try on to find the perfect 'fit.

Price range: $32-$480

4. Frey

Its off-the-rack options are stellar, and this Hong Kong-based company's bread and butter is personalization—and it's done completely digitally. In collaboration with an app called Taillie, Frey helps customers take their own measurements to ensure the perfect fit for personalized create-your-own suiting. Bonus points: The brand is committed to sustainability, utilizing natural materials and repurposed or deadstock fabrics; and packaging its products in eco-friendly ways.

Best for: Wedding Guests (Cocktail, Semi-Formal, Formal)

How to shop: Online

Price range: $220-$320

Size range: EU 32-46 (US 2-16) or custom

5. Nordstrom

A does-it-all department store is always a safe bet for suiting, and Nordstrom is our top pick (a peek into the women's "suits and separates" tab culls nearly 1,000 results!). Search by label to narrow down your choices: TopShop and Treasure & Bond are great for bold color and affordable pricing; Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen are fashion-forward picks for bigger budgets. Brides, check out white suit options by River Island, The Row and Dress the Population. Psst, with so many departments to shop, Nordstrom is a great size-inclusive retailer, too.

Best for: Bride or Wedding Guests (Cocktail, Formal, Black-Tie)

How to shop: Online or in-person

Price range: $32-$5,350

Size range: 00-28

6. Zara

You can still shop piecemeal (pairing your own blazer and pants, for example; Zara's blazer selection is *chef's kiss*), but the rise in trendy coordinating sets has opened up a whole new suiting category for this fashion retailer. Looks we love include a baby blue blazer and skirt ensemble, floral silk suit and bold belted red crops with a matching deep V fitted blazer.

Best for: Wedding Guests (Cocktail, Semi-Formal, Formal)

How to shop: Online or in-person

Price range: $45-$150

Size range: XS-XL

7. Eloquii

Eloquii's "workwear" category is so much more than office attire. The fashion label is the best place to buy a women's suit for plus-size (it caters specifically to sizes 14-28), with chic styles featuring bold colors (think: a vibrant orange silk suit and lemon wide-leg pants); fun fabrics like linen blends for summer weddings; and unique details like a tie-waist blazer. The brand also recently launched its own bridal range, and offers a few fun pantsuit and jumpsuit options for the bride.

Price range: $79-$159

8. Theory

Among the best places to buy a suit for women, Theory will always hold strong. The label's self-proclaimed "Perfect Suit" is a must for the office, but when it comes to wedding wear there is definitely a creative side to the brand. Everything is tailored to a T: Start in their pant shop to find your favorite fit—a pleated flare, high-waisted straight leg, wide crop, the list goes on—and then find a coordinating blazer, available in countless colorways and fabrics from linen to leather. With lots of options in ivory and white, the label is great for brides as well as guests.

Best for: Bride or Wedding Guest (Causal, Cocktail, Semi-Formal, Formal)

How to shop: Online or in-person (the label has standalone stores and outlets, and is carried in department stores and on retail sites like Revolve)

Price range: $150-$495

Size range: 00-18

9. Good American

Maybe the biggest surprise on our list of where to buy women's suits, Khloe Kardashian's Good American label, which began as a denim brand, has been a sleeper hit for a variety of fashion categories—and we love that the label is all about celebrating and accentuating curves. There is a lot of black in the brand's cheekily named "bosswear" category, (wedding guests can punch up the classic hue with bold shoes and accessories), but our top pick is a vibrant fuchsia suit made from sculpted scuba material (and the scuba open-back dress is another suiting-inspired fave).

Best for: Wedding Guests (Casual, Cocktail, Semi-Formal)

How to shop: Online in-person

Price range: $89-$225

Size range: XS-5XL

10. Indochino

Indochino has long been a go-to for men's wedding suits and tuxedos, both custom and off-the-rack; now the label has expanded to include women's suiting, and they do it right. This is where brides and guests looking for the best place for women's suits can truly get picky, sorting and selecting by pattern, color, fabric weight and composition and more; then have the suit custom-made to their specific measurements (orders include a free measurement appointment). We especially love the double-breasted options for a luxe wedding look (check out the pink Harrogate suit), and the women's tuxedos for a black-tie affair. It's even got a ringing endorsement from David's Bridal: The bridal behemoth directs customers shopping for women's suits directly to Indochino.

Best for: Bride or Wedding Guest (Semi-Formal, Formal, Black-Tie)

How to shop: Online or in-person

Price range: $449-$599

Size range: Custom

11. Argent

With the motto "attitude, meet ambition," Argent seeks to redefine office attire for women, and it's quickly become one of the top women's suit brands. But with its diverse range and variety, Argent's offerings go well beyond the boardroom. We especially love the label for color (its wide-leg wool trousers, for example, are available in a dozen hues, from classic black to kelly green to seafoam blue). From tailored to chicly slouchy, there's something for every wedding suiting style.
