Stand out among the corporate crowd in this classic, navy blue suit with a canary-yellow and navy blue striped slim tie, and be fashionably fierce in black, ruffled top and a red-and-black plaid skirt.
Want to be versatile and go from work to after-work and still stay true to your suave self? Retire the jacket for the evening.
Who says you can't mix and match with patterns and stripes? The classic suit with the slim tie adds the right complimentary touch.
From fabric to fit-to-finish, this fine wool suit by Mark Anthony features a patterned slim tie.
The ultimate plaid experience: the navy blue, two-buttoned jacket suit gets a pop of plaid with the tie, while the festive plaid pattern in the skirt can handle all that the radiant red top has to offer.
Dress up your classically chic black-and-white number with a black jacket and wave of colour in the accessories department.

When classic meets chic, the result is corporate magic! Tamia Carey has joined fashion forces with fellow designer Mark Anthony to deliver a collaborative collection you will no time soon forget!

The talented Tamia Carey, who is known for designing elegant and casual trends for the curvaceous woman, has decided to spread her wings to corporate wear. According to Carey, the idea to take this route was born out of the request from clients to have a capsule closet in order to mix and match pieces as they pleased.

The fruit of her luxurious labour was a sweet and sassy one, filled with plaids, houndstooth, stripes, African prints and vibrant colours. But she needed a business partner to represent the male 'suitors', accentuating her styles and bringing the looks to life. That's where Mark Anthony came in. "I love Mark's clothes so I called, asked him if he was interested and he said yes," Carey added.

Tying up loose style ends, Anthony was happy to get the call, taking on the mission to tailor dapper formal men's wear. Employing clean and sleek cuts, fused with pops of plaids and colour, he has given new meaning to custom-fit suits and ties, and, of course, he provided great company for his fashionably femme counterpart.

So, if you like what you see here, trade in the weak for corporate chic and upgrade your wardrobe to Tamia Carey Collection and Mark Anthony Designs today. Here is a look at the collection.
