3 ways to wear tailoring this summer

With spring/summer fashion taking over the shops, there are plenty of new trends and styles to try right now. But if you're going to commit to one new look this season, we suggest making it a suit. Serving up some empowering Working Girl vibes, the suit is back in full force for the season ahead, and this time, it's not just reserved for the office. Whether you want to try an '80s-inspired check blazer, a statement pink trouser suit or a chic, summer-friendly short suit, there's a take on the trend for everyone. Here are three ways to style it out this season.

Look 1:

Hey shorty


With steamy tube platforms and malfunctioning air-con days at the office on the horizon, we couldn’t be more thankful that the short suit trend is having a moment. Perfect for those who dread finding office-appropriate summer dresses, you'll feel sophisticated and cool (literally) with practically no effort in a breezy, pale-hued pairing. The best part? You can wear the pieces on their own or mix and match for a plethora of outfit options – the shorts will look great with a t-shirt and sandals or draped over the shoulders with a floaty maxi dress and trainers.

 


 

 

 

Look 2:


Eye candy

 

Is there anything that makes us feel more summery than a splash of colour? We think not. A statement suit is an easy route to chic - no wonder then that it's become a favourite with the street-style set. Surprisingly versatile, a candy-pink suit can be dressed down with a white tee and trainers for the weekend. After dark, add statement earrings, barely-there heels and a mini satchel bag for a glorious retro feel. 




 

 

 

Look 3:


Check, please 


Once upon a time, we might have thought that this kind of retro two-piece should be confined to your 9-5, but not anymore. Boxy, checked suits have broken free from their boardroom bounds, and although they still make an undeniably chic work look, they become even cooler when paired with a classic white tee and mules by day and barely anything else for evening. Shoe-wise we suggest a chunky heeled sandal or flat slides when the weather permits or a chunky trainer for days on the move.
