It Suits You Aurelie Mason-Perez
Suits are not reserved for corporate life however is a symbolism of dominance and authority so liven up this classic style with vibrant colours, alternative cuts and an attitude that shows that you wear what you want when you want. Choose your fabric wisely. To make this style fit into your daily life it must be comfortable, fluid and light.
To make this look suit your everyday, go for something that is a little roomier and informal. Create a look that is unlined and lightly structured to remove the sharp edge of this powerful look. Narrow, crease front, ankle skimmers are exactly where your trousers need to be this season. The crease adds depth and texture as well as adding length.
Suits are worn to impress, so avoid something average as they can look dated if too straight. Make sure it is versatile. Suits can be transformed into many looks so think to yourself can I wear this with a t-shirt, can I replace the trousers with denim and still pull off the look. Can I wear the jacket with an evening dress? Make sure you are maximising all of your wardrobe and be playful in creating new looks.
So what silhouette is right for you? If you are petite then slim cut, ankle skimming trousers with no turn up is the best look for you. Avoid long sleeves. Keep them in line with your trouser cut so tailor to the line of your wrist bone. Oversized jackets suit most, although for the curvier girl steer clear of too much volume. Double breasted jackets will accentuate width and choose fabrics that don’t cling. If you have a fuller figure, longer straight cut trousers work well while pinstripes extend any frame.
