This season, the two-piece suit has returned and is the ultimate high/low dressing investment. Wear it together, as separates, with trainers, with heels, dressed up for drinks, dressed down with denim… we could go on. See? If you’re looking for versatility, you can’t beat this. Here are our top three ways to wear it this season.
Ever since Yves Saint Laurent pioneered the now iconic ‘le smoking’ – the first tuxedo for women – tailoring has been on the agenda. This season, suiting goes maximalist – moving beyond the confines of all-black dinner-party dressing and exploding in a cacophony of bold colour. If you want to make an impact, this is the way to do it. Simply add a cami or vest beneath the blazer for more coverage.
Take the red blazer and partner it with denim for high/low flair. If your office dress code is relatively relaxed, this is a great way to add boardroom-ready polish. Throw on some heels for extra oomph or to head straight out for post-work drinks.
Pair the trousers with a relaxed shirt and trainers for weekend cool – the injection of red makes for a bold alternative to go-to denim. Add a little animal print via your accessories for even more personality.
