We don’t know about you, but our obsession with suits has been steadily growing for months. It’s pretty much peaked now that Emma Stone has worn a suit on the Oscar Red Carpet, an almost unheard thing as ridiculous as it sounds. And lets not forget to mention Meghan Markle, who wore a simple black suit to a recent Gala event and managed to look incredible in it (not that is takes a lot for her!) We are definitely onboard with this trend, so let’s take a closer look at it and how you can make it work.
There’s a lot of sources to look for when it comes to seeking some inspiration for this trend. And of course there are a number of variations in this trend too. From Bloggers to Celebs everyone seems to be giving this trend a go.
Irish Blogger Erika Fox has been doing justice to this trend on numerous occasions. We adore her stunning Blue Suit from White House Black Market. We also spotted Erika wearing one of our picks, this Pink Check Stripe Suit from River Island .
Deep reds and pinks are big news too. Probably because they’re just such flattering colours and work for most people. We love Margot Robbie in this stripped number, even if it is giving us the urge to say Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
We adore Saoirse Ronan in her gorgeous tweed co-ord. And we managed to find a similar option from River Island.
Suited and Booted
The Power Suit is definitely the most striking and the main event when it comes to this trend. It’s perfect if you have an occasion to go to and if you’re so over wearing dresses. It’s also great if you’re not quite sure if you should be super dressed up or a bit more on the casual side. You can dress it down with a pair of runners or really go for it and rock some heels. So. many. options.
The Long And Short Of It
If a Power Suit feels a bit too much for you why not try dipping your feet in the trend with a cute coord suit? Expect to see a lot of this trend as we move more into Spring and Summer. This would be a great look if you had a Summer wedding to attend.
Mix ‘n’ Match
If you kinda like the trend, but you’re not sure if you have the occasion to pull off this look try to mix and match separates. A structured jacket with denim jeans is always a winner in our books. Or pair a plain T-Shirt with some tailored trousers.
Skirting Around The Issue
We are DYING over this amazing set from River Island. It looks very like a Chanel suit that costs thousands! It’s also something that you would have in your wardrobe for years because it will never date, as Chanel has proven.
