This season is seeing a number of intriguing trends come to the fore. But between the oversized look, the monotone palettes, the heritage fabrics and the statement shoes, there is one style that we can absolutely rely on, and that, my friends, is the suit.
Experiencing something of a resurgence (although, did it ever really go away?), suiting seems to be the sartorial go-to for much of fashion’s cognoscenti, and when you trawl through the street style hoard, those in precisely-tailored pieces stand out more than most.
A good suit is like a blank canvas. Layer it with your favourite knits as the weather cools down or wear the jacket done up with nothing underneath for a suave, after-dark look. To be clear, our definition of suiting is not necessarily restricted to the kind you have to visit a tailor for. While traditional suiting still has its place, this season, we’re encouraging you to branch out. Experiment with colours and silhouettes you wouldn’t usually and elevate your look with carefully-curated accessories.
To help you nail this style, we’ve assembled some outfit ideas to inspire you, alongside some of the best examples we saw on the streets of fashion week.
