Alexandra Elizabeth Ljadov dons modern business suit staples in 'Follow Suit,' the Wall Street Journal's latest fashion editorial. The image series is lensed by photographer Ward Ivan Rafik and features a number of professional wardrobe picks that are selected by stylist Celestine Cooney.

From patterned separates to menswear-inspired staples, 'Follow Suit' is a celebration of the modern business suit and its return into the style spotlight. Made famous by designers like Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, the power suit is an androgynous and elegant outfit that never goes out of style.

The look is back in a big way, proving that commutes can be far less boring when wearing the right outfit. Hair styling for this series is courtesy of Chi Wong who perfects model Alaxandra's understated look with the help of makeup artist Junko Kioka.
