Suit up, look sharp.

Suits are shaking things up all we've anticipated for the coming months and seasonal changes. For me, I've always wanted to wear a suit rolling back to my High School prom there was a part of me that loved the idea of a sharp tailored suit that probably came from watching SATC2 and seeing that amazing crown Carrie wears at the wedding and thinking 'Why not?'.

A good tailored suit is necessary in every mans wardrobe and now ladies, it's out turn. Think Clueless, Princess Diana and long-lines. The high-street inspiration for suits have had heavy influence from Cher and Dionne and they rule-breaking lavishly bold two-pieces i'm sure we've all considered for any fancy dress occasion. But now, it's going to be part of your everyday wardrobe. Below are some of my favourite Clueless-esque suit's with a little how-to guide.

This Topshop two-piece is the kind of thing you can wear anywhere to anything. The light grey and long-line fit can be made formal or casual for whatever you need it for! Don't be afraid to wear a long-line if you're short; it's all about the right fit. Topshop will usually do petite alternatives but as a petite person myself, I prefer over-sized so would try both and see what you prefer. Match this similar to the model or try a cobalt blue mule with a metallic details and an art-deco earring.

Of course, ASOS have something on the table. It's a heavier fit than the Topshop one previously but will be an easier staple for our wardrobe. Because there's a darker check it means that it's easier to pair with anything rather than a faded check that can sometimes get a bit lost when worn with bolder colours. If you're more of a bright and bold gal, this one is ideal for you. Pair with some super shiny trousers from Millie Mackintosh, a clean white T and edgy heels.

Anthropologie have nailed the Cher styled blazer. By Cartonnier their masculine style with feminine detailing makes this blazer perfect for everyone. As a brand, their sizes come up quite big so if you're popping in to try it on, try a couple of sizes on. The green thread that goes through this reminds me of a very Pandora Sykes staple. It's double-breasted which means if you wear it closed it will give you some shape around the waist and will sit in all the right places. Pair with this ASOS Glamorous silky dress (i'm completely obsessed with) and match it with a ruffled heel for ultimate sassy pants vibes.

Next let's think more bold and something you would wear to an occasion and easily slipped into your staples section of your wardrobe. I'm talking, pattern, colour and texture are all super key features to think about when shopping for suits. I'm all about a bold colour so i've found a couple thing's I love and some inspiration for you!

This Missguided orange suit is a slice of zestyness I think we all need in our life. It's fun, tailored and sexy. The orange is super clean and perfect for going into Autumn for a fresher look. If you're worried about it being too much, you can tone it down with an illustrated t-shirt  or a sweet mini-peplum for a more cheeky edge to the suit rather than a typical white shirt or something really fitted and a block colour. With some metallic trainers, this is perfect for those last minute outings with the gals. 

This floral suit is my pyjama dream come true. Finally it's acceptable to wear something as comfortable as pyjamas out in public and not be judged. It's elegant, feminine and perfectly beautiful in every aspect. I love the effortless shape it has and the way it hangs mirrors oriental styling and the palazzo trousers are a dream. If you're as brave as the model, wear nothing underneath. If it's for an occasion a simple silk vest will be perfect or take the oatmeal colour from the flowers in a layered frilled top but i'm also obsessed with the idea of a raspberry pink too. Matched with a super simple heels or shoes, this suit speaks for itself with no need for any fuss.

So there you are- a very quick look into the new trend of suits. Whether you love tailoring or you prefer something a bit looser and floaty, there's a suit for you! Be bold, brave and always try something new.
