Pantsuited

adjective; derivation Affixation
Wearing a pantsuit.
 
I have yet to see this word used elsewhere, though a quick Google search will return several definitions from online dictionaries. I would still consider this to be a neologism as Google assumed I misspelled “pantsuit.” There’s not much of a motivation to shorten “wearing a pantsuit” to “pantsuited,” which is probably why there are so few notable usages.
Etymology : The “-ed” suffix added onto “pantsuit.” In this case, the “-ed” forms an adjective from a noun (similar to how “horn” becomes “horned”).
Source : “A pantsuited white woman with chin-length blond hair meets us at the glass door to the building.” (Friend’s unpublished novel, 10/3/20)
