While I find a nipped waist suit quite delicious, I think these softer suits that showed up in 1954 with their longer cut and bloused backs are the epitome of Paris chic. The jeweled cuff link is a look you can copy with a vintage brooch.
"Back-Bloused Suit: Fath
Gray flannel suit-wearing its blouse outside. This, fitted at front, full at back and centre.
Jewel cuff links; Persian lamb hat, scarf, bag."
Vogue, October 1954
Or this Dior suit from 1952:
I have this suit on my site which has all the style features I like; loose fit, dropped waist, bloused back.
