Women’s trouser suits are having a major comeback this year and they are your go-to for almost every occasion from work to parties and an understated wardrobe staple. A suit will instantly make you look taller, stylish and put together. Read on for a few tips on how to suit up this season.
Swap out your black, navy or grey suits for pastels – Think pink, peach, pistachio ice cream green and mellow yellow. You can mix and match your separates to color block your look or opt for a contrasting colored top to break up the one toned look. If your feeling bold Crayola Bright’s or a daring print will have you on point too. Here are some of our picks for the season:
There is no dominant silhouette that is in fashion right now but a variety – The 70’s inspired high-waisted, wide leg trousers with longer hem lined jackets are flattering on most figures. Or a Tuxedo style blazer with silk lapels and cigarette pants is perfect if you’re after a polished, sleek style. For a more laid-back casual look opt for boyfriend style relaxed pants and pair with sneakers, or for a true summer look swap out your trousers for shorts.
If you are petite go for an ankle skimming, cigarette style trouser style, ensuring the jacket sleeves finish at your wrist bone. Or if you are a little curvier on top, opt for a single-breasted blazer instead of a double-breasted style and select fabrics that skim and not cling.
Below is some inspiration to add to your wardrobe:
How to Wear Inspiration:
For work, a simple T-shirt or sweater is one way to modernize tailoring, paired with either Brogues, sneakers or heels.
In the evenings to get the perfect masculine and feminine balance pair with a silk-satin, lace or velvet top and heels for a sleek and sophisticated look.
For an ultra-slimming look select a top in a slightly different shade of your suit and opt for a clutch or petite bag to add a feminine touch to your look.
