ICYMI, Minnie Mouse has a fantabulous new look!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, iconic designer Stella McCartney gave the famous mouse a tres chic blue-spotted pantsuit and matching bow.

While this may seem a fun little novelty, the pantsuit has mixed reviews, with some saying it is defeminising the cartoon mouse (despite this not being the first time Minnie has rocked pants in fun campaigns).

FYI, here at Yahoo Lifestyle, we’re a big fan of both skirts and pants … but we’re a bigger fan of rocking both and living your best life, as Minnie shows we can.


As per the Google searches for "pantsuits" skyrocketing by 455 per cent since the prototype debuted, we think most people are fans of Minnie’s new look.

So if you want to get your Minnie on and rock a pantsuit, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites:

Oxford Lola Check Stretch Eco Suit Jacket, $369

Oxford Helena Check Stretch Eco Suit Pants, $179

This pantsuit comes in a muted, yet funky, black-and-white check.

The suit is made from Eco Smart Carreman fabric, a certified recycled check print - which is a nice bonus when buying these pieces!

The paints are high-waisted, slightly cropped and wide-leg, with a tailored style.

The jacket is designed with slim notch lapels and a back vent and is fully lined.

Tia Suit Blazer, $349

Tia Suit Pant, $229

One thing to keep in mind for pantsuits is that a classic, quality cut will never go out of style and will last you years.

Therefore, it’s sometimes worth the splurge for two pieces that you’ll love and wear to death.

SABA is known for its premium quality clothing and this Tia pantsuit is no exception.

The cotton-blend jacket is fully lined and tailored into a slimming, timeless style.

The pants are ankle length, have a straight-leg fit and have belt loops and functional front and back pockets.

Quick to Win Blazer in Stone, $89.95

Along the Ride Shorts in Stone, $49.95

While compiling this list, we couldn’t ignore the fact that it’s still summer and stinking hot and humid across most of Australia.

If you don’t want to think about pants just yet, you can still get the same "boss girl" vibes from a short-suit set.

This oversized, double-breasted blazer comes in stone, hot pink or white.

It matches perfectly with the shorts (available in black, white and stone) that have a high-rise waist and are fully lined.

Both items are available in sizes 4 - 20.

City Chic Perfect Suit Jacket - caramel, $90.97

City Chic ​​Perfect Suit Pant - caramel, $83.97

For the curvy ladies, City Chic has this fantastic caramel-coloured pantsuit.

It does come in other colours (guava and navy), although it looks like it’s become so popular that those colours are sold out for the jackets.

The suit jacket has lightly padded shoulders and satin lining, with a structured collar and a hook-and-eye closure if you’d prefer to wear it buttoned up.

As for the pants, they come in a relaxed, wide-leg cut.

They have a removable matching waist belt and an elasticated back for all day comfort.

Envii Lexington pants co-ord, $54.05

The only thing more elevated than a regular pantsuit is a three-piece pantsuit.

Worn together, they create a striking, tailored silhouette.

The waistcoat and jacket have funky tortoiseshell buttons.

The pants are wide-leg and high-waisted, with an invisible zip.

ASOS DESIGN Petite moire suit blazer in metallic, $130

ASOS DESIGN Petite moire suit pants in metallic silver, $80

This suit will have all heads turning when you enter a room.

The metallic swirly pattern is just subtle enough not to make it look like you should be headlining a disco show.

Yet, it's fabulous enough that it will definitely dominate any meeting or networking event.

As part of ASOS’s petite range, the jacket has large padded shoulders and a slouchy, oversized fit.

The pants are a slim fit and cropped to just above the ankles.
