STYLE ADVISOR: SUIT UP

Womenswear tailoring has come a long way since the days of shoulder pads and power pant suits. What once felt stiff, uncomfortable and heavily aligned with our work wardrobes, now has a whole new mood. For 2022, we’re pairing suit trousers with chunky sneakers, going in on soft, slouchy fits and rocking signature logo detailing from head-to-toe. From Burberry, Jacquemus, Saint Laurent and more, this is how to style up suits this season.

There are few pieces as iconic as the Burberry tartan. And this autumn, they’ve delivered with a sharp take on tailoring that splashes their signature check print from head-to-toe. Layer the Sidon Blazer with the Emery Long Sleeve top and pair with the Aimie Skinny Trousers for the ultimate effect. And for a touch of autumnal prep? Opt for Jil Sander’s Lace Up Derby Shoes.

LARGE AND LOOSE

Hot on the heels of their SS23 show, billowing masculine silhouettes are fast becoming a staple style for Saint Laurent, and their Pinstripe suit nails the trend in one. The key? Go for loose-fit suit trousers that sit snug on the waist and bag effortlessly over the legs. Pair with an oversized blazer for that cult masculine touch, and level up on alt-chic with the platform Mina 95 Boots and Collier 3 Charm Necklace.

LAIDBACK LUXE

High-low dressing is firmly on the agenda this year – think joggers worn with heels, leggings with blazers – and suiting is just the place to start. The key? Lean into minimal chic with soft, buttery beige tones, like this Jacquemus suit. Pair with their chunky Risoul knit top and matching knitted beanie, and for a touch of streetwear appeal, add Off-White’s chunky sneakers.

Although Off-White’s Twist Blazer dress isn’t technically a suit, it is one of our favourite takes on tailoring this season. In timelessly chic all black, ft. twist detailing and their cult yellow patch detail, it’s a real winner. Wear with nothing underneath and Madga Butrym’s Patent Thigh High Boots for your next big night out.
