You won't believe how much this whole outfit costs.

Abandon the idea that suits are just made for the boys. And while you're at it, you might want to rethink wearing the blazer-and-trouser combo solely in the office.

Take a quick look at Martine Cajucom's outfit and you'll see just how you can casually wear a power suit. If you're not ready to wear a set of printed coordinates like Martine's plaid number, then stick to light, muted colors like gray. Choose an oversized (but lightweight, so you won't feel too hot) blazer for a slouchy, relaxed vibe and slip on a pair of tailored, cropped trousers. Additionally, wear a sleeveless top underneath to keep it laid-back. Finish the ensemble with a pair of slides or backless loafers and you're all set!

P.S. Did we mention that Martine's whole outfit is also super affordable? Her suit is from a Japanese retail store called GU, which she bought for only USD$50, or about P2570. Her slides cost her about P1280, her Sunnies Specs are priced at P1999, and the button-down cropped top was only four hundred bucks! Who says pulling off a suit needs to be expensive?
