Taking a Structured Approach

When tailoring hit the catwalk I couldn’t have been more excited. The great thing is that tailoring will last years in your wardrobe so it's well worth the investment, whatever the occasion. 
I can’t see the trouser suit hype dying down too soon. There’s something about this structured detailing that just doesn’t date. Often worn as a two piece, it’s not to say you can't ditch the jacket and just match the shirt instead. *See snaps above for inspiration!*
This one’s a more relaxed look. I found this duo, like the rest of my wardrobe, in zara! I love the single stripe detailing which adds a little interest and direction. The shirt, cut long and billowy means it can be dressed smart or partnered with jeans for a cool weekend vibe. If you still feel a bit overdressed throw on a pair of trainers and/or a t-shirt to take it down a notch.

The benefit of buying a suit is that you can mix and match. We saw above that trousers can be worn just like jeans, dressed down.
The same applies to a blazer.
A blazer is not only great for layering under coats, wear it as a light jacket to wear over jeans, dresses and skirts. Or invest in a well-tailored coat, it will last you for years and quickly become a wardrobe essential.

Do you have a favourite suit? Let me know which one?
