Suits You

There’s something about slipping into a suit, especially in a statement colour. It says that you are confident, not afraid to stand out and mean business. Power dressing is back in a big way and I couldn’t be happier. Whilst I wouldn’t want to be suited and booted every day, I love suiting up for a special occasion and I look for details such as bright colours, flattering cuts and shiny buttons to add a feminine touch.

I remember my mum wearing suits in the 90s and as I’ve got older my appreciation for a smart two piece has grown. Last winter I bought a grey velvet suit from Topshop which began my current love affair. Here are two suits I’ve put together recently but I’m sure there’ll be a few more over the coming season. I want to try a printed one next…

This suit isn’t actually a suit and I’ve had the New Look jacket for about 3 years. I found these ankle length trousers in Miss Selfridge about a month ago and bought the shirt and shoes to match on asos. I wore this ensemble for my cousins wedding last month. Buying a separate jacket and trousers is a risk but I thought these matched pretty well

Red is all over the high street and online stores such as Missguided so it shouldn’t be to difficult to find something similar.  Extra bonus points for matching your earrings to your suit! Topshop, Next and H&M have some decent tassel earrings in a wide range of colours

This is also a separate jacket and trousers as I fell in love with this blazer in Miss Selfridge but they didn’t have any matching bottoms so I tried my best to match the colour with these military trousers from V by Very. I love cobalt blue at the moment and there is a similar suit available on Pretty Little Thing. My mules are from New Look and my bag is an old M&S one. The good thing about suits is you can mix and match the trousers and jackets and they can be worn for work, through to afterwork drinks without the need to get changed.
