The winds of high fashion blow this way and that and thankfully W has its finger to the wind in its March 2016 issue. The latest trend to pique interest is none other than the workaday pantsuit, which receives maximum attention in a story photographed by Patrick Demarchelier featuring Grace Hartzel. Titled “Funny Business,” this Giovanna Battaglia-styled story will fill readers with plenty of mirth once they realize these looks think way outside of the cubicle. To that end, Grace sports short cropped hair styled by Teddy Charles to give the suits an edge as in the case of the jacket and pants by Céline (pictured) worn on the opening page. This is business attire as it ought to be or at least how Grace and company have shown it can be.
