Close your eyes. Think about suits. What do you see? Is it Julia Roberts collecting her Golden Globe in 1990? SATC’s Samantha Jones sipping a martini with a statement earring? SAME.
BUT! We’re here to tell you that there’s a whole new attitude towards suiting and it’s a vibe that you’re gonna wanna channel. It’s cool, it’s classy and it’s modern – and it makes wearing your fave trainers 100% acceptable in the office. YUS. To help you pull it off the way SS18 intended, here’s a few helpful hints 📖 💡
Colour is a good thing
Oh hey pink and red ladies…they’re smiling because they’ve fully embraced colour and they’re feeling great about it 🌈 Going with a bold shade will give you extra style points when it comes to the whole suiting thang. So, pink or red?
Get yourself at least 3 slogan tees, so you can rotate
Ain’t no doubt, slogan tees are essential to pulling off suiting right now. We particularly love bold white tees with black type, à la @luciagrace.
If it’s nippy, go with a simple high neck top
In our opinion, a high neck top has a magical power that makes everything you pair it with look great. We don’t know why exactly but that’s just the way fashion feels right now 🤷 So while winter’s still hanging around, reach for a high neck knit. When we eventually hit spring, it’s ribbed jersey all the way – we love the vibe @thelizzielloyd is bringing above 👆
Trainers are your friend
Your BFF, in fact. Your fave kicks are essential to pulling off the whole suiting thing right now and also will help ease you into wearing a suit – gotta love that high/low, smart/casual contrast 😎
The skirt suit is also a thing
We LOVE @louisecooney_ in our Blue Skirt Suit. It’s making us reminisce over Clueless for the 2876th time. For when you wanna try something different on a night out, go for a skirt suit and heels – no t-shirt necessary.
Always coordinate your suit with your BFF’s suit
How cute is this pic of @oliviaandalice_ at fash week? Olivia is K-I-L-L-I-N-G- it in our Blue Skirt Suit and Blue Shearling Coat and Alice has gone fully mellow yellow in our Yellow Ruched Sleeve Blazer and Spotted Button Side Trousers. We’re loving their whole blue skies and sunshine thing.
