In a bittersweet celebration of the Suits series finale which aired this past Wednesday I wanted to highlight some of the inspired fall work dresses Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) wore in the USA Network legal drama series.
Donna Paulsen started off as Harvey Specter’s (Gabriel Macht) secretary and climbed straight up to the COO of the law firm. She is the glue that holds the law firm together.
From the time she was the secretary to now that she’s a top-level executive her work style has remained the same pristine, stylish, feminine, classy, posh, power dresses.
She oozes femininity, power, and class whenever she walks into a room. Not that wearing pantsuits is wrong but Donna didn’t need to wear them to sit with the boys.
Her dresses are always well-tailored and fitted, hugging her body at the right places. And girl oh girl, did she have the chicest and swoon-worthy collection. I honestly watch the show for her dresses. The storylines are great but Donna’s dresses are greater.
I decided to scout online clothing stores to find budget-friendly fall work dresses similar to the ones Donna wore on the show.
