Chloe Bailey attended a proclamation ceremony dedicated to her at Morehouse College yesterday in Atlanta, her home city. Bailey spoke to a crowd of students and received a plaque from the institution.
For the occasion, Bailey went business-forward, donning a brown wool suit in a structural menswear-inspired look. The suit was comprised of an oversized blazer featuring wide lapels and a boxy silhouette worn with matching baggy trousers. Suits like Bailey’s are a closet staple in many celebrities’ closets for formal occasions from talkshow appearances to college visits.
Like Bailey’s application, suits on female stars usually take inspiration from their suited male counterparts, often featuring broad shoulders and a slouchy disposition. Suits offer the wearer a sharp and clean appearance, especially when paired with the right footwear and accessories.
Speaking of accessories, the “For The Night” songstress sported a gold pin on the lapel of her suit worn with contrasting silver necklaces fastened to dazzling pendants. Bailey also wore a pair of large gold hoops that offered her look a high-shine touch. As for her hair, the “How Does It Feel” singer styled her tresses in a deep side part worn in lengthy bright red twists.
It’s likely the hitmaker donned a platform heel, a go-to for Bailey as of late. The footwear, if worn, offered the performer a walkable sky-high boost. Bailey is typically trendy when it comes to her footwear choices.
The “Grown-ish” actress has been spotted in styles like strappy thong sandals and chunky sneakers from Tamara Mellon, Balenciaga and other brands. She also wears Allbirds sneakers when off-duty. Additionally, the multihyphenate phenom has an extensive resume in the fashion industry, having appeared in campaigns and on runways for Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton.
