Where impeccable tailoring is concerned, you gotta give it to the boys. They’re anal about the fit, wrinkles, and the cut of their suits—sometimes even more than the girls. We do admire that; but as much as we hate to burst their bubble, the pieces look better on us. Styled with a cropped top or just a lacy lingerie (sometimes with no trousers) with 5-inch steppers or white sneakers, ladies in menswear can look oh-so-fierce and even the men will agree. Below, allow these 22 stylish celebrities to prove our point.
1. Georgina Wilson
We've seen in her in various tailored Balmain pieces, but this ruffled Ellery number paired with her Marni flats would have to be our favorite panstsuit look on George. It's so chic!

2. Liz Uy
Who else killed it in New York Fashion Week? Liz, of course! Her striped Tibi oversized blazer and cropped trousers, matched with her hairy-heeled Rochas, Miu Miu sunnies, and Perrin Paris purse scored her a perfect 10 in our style book.
Detail to cop: Cropped trousers
3. Janine Gutierrez
How can we forget Janine's cropped Ziggy Savella suit which she wore to the Preview 20th Anniversary Gala? She deviated from the norm and brought in a bucket load of freshness we totally dig.
Detail to cop: Crop top
4. Kim Jones
Kim is one of those girls whose sartorial choices always fall on the feminine side of the spectrum. Which is why we adore how she was able to make this American Apparel menswear ensemble her own by opting for a faint pink hue.
Detail to cop: How she styled it with flats and a cropped top
5. Isabelle Daza
Belle just styled her hair in a messy bun and still managed to look well put together—that's the effect of wearing a suit. Make it fun by experimenting with bright colors.
Detail to cop: The bright yellow color
6. Martine Cajucom
Boom Sason is an expert at making Martine look like a total babe, even when in a suit. Style it with an I-wokeup-like-this 'do and nude lips to avoid the nautical route.
Detail to cop: Sleeveless
7. Angel Locsin
Angel's tuxedo dress from BLK DNM showed off her gams clad in Gianvito Rossi gladiator heels.
Detail to cop: The ribbon to cinch the waist.
8. Iza Calzado
Iza looks absolutely sophisticated in her fuschia tuxedo dress by Jun Escario worn with a simple pony tail.
Detail to cop: The shade of pink. (Pick the right shade to update your LPD.)
9. Bea Soriano
Bea's laidback yet put-together sensibilities is something we truly admire. Tone down an otherwise sexy pantsuit by styling it with a sweater, rolled cuffs, and white sneakers.
Detail to cop: Rolled cuffs
10. KC Concepcion
If you're blessed with a hefty pair of twins, you can follow the lead of KC Concepcion and wear a bandeau under your blazer.
Detail to cop: A loud colored pantsuit shoud be paired with simple shoes.
11. Maja Salvador
Sizzle like Maja in red.
Detail to cop: Tailored jumpsuit
12. Toni Gonzaga
One can never go wrong with a white pantsuit. Toni didn't even need to accessorize or blow out her tresses to look tres chic. She can even wear this to a wedding!
Detail to cop: The clean and fresh color white.
13. Ellen Adarna
There may have been a lot of buzz over Ellen's drinking at the 9th Star Magic Ball, but where fashion is concerned, we have to say she nailed it. Her silky pajama-type Joey Samson pantsuit and Neil Felipp minaudiere earned her an A+.
Detail to cop: Silk
14. Bea Alonzo
The next time you travel, give your leather jacket a rest and opt for a blazer with comfy trousers in the same color instead.
Detail to cop: The earthy brown hue.
15. Divine Lee
A pantsuit can totally look casual, too! Divine wore hers with a shirt and a pair of flats, and it worked.
Detail to cop: Wide leg trousers
16. Anne Curtis
For the screening of her international movie, Anne flaunted her Saint Laurent find from New York and upped the fierce factor by wearing the blazer as a top. The fiery pout and pointy pumps tied the vampy look together.
Detail to cop: The girl boss styling.
17. Jasmine Curtis
For the Preview Anniversary Gala, Jasmine wore a similar Saint Laurent suit (or maybe she borrowed it from her big sis). She managed to make it her own though by donning slicked back tresses and an ear cuff.
Detail to cop: Ear cuff and rolled sleeves.
18. Julia Barretto
If you're not ready to bare it all out, you can still look sexy with age-appropriate lingerie like Julia's corset.
Detail to cop: Corset
19. Monika Sta. Maria
Monika was the third lady to wear a black pantsuit at the ball, but she was not to be outdone. She smartly styled her House of Laurel suit with simple silver accessories and a clean updo.
Detail to cop: silver accessories
20. Kim Chiu
Does Kim look like a total hottie or what? She only needed to wear a blazer over her cleavage-baring jumpsuit to look this great!
Detail to cop: Black jumpsuit
21. Rhian Ramos
Rhian brings in the local factor by wearing a barong. You can totally make it work, too! Try pairing it with wide-leg trousers and you can never go wrong.
Detail to cop: Barong
22. Kathryn Bernardo
We suggest you get a copy of Preview's big September issue to meet the other side of the Teen Queen dressed in Dries Van Noten.
