“The trouser suit is officially your new go-to”
If you were unconvinced about this season’s trouser suit trend, you won’t be after reading this week’s article from The Telegraph Fashion Director Lisa Armstrong.
Espousing the joys of a well-fitting suit, Lisa highlights the colours and cuts to go for to master the trend this season.
Why we love it
Speaking to ME+EM founder Clare Hornby about why the trouser suit trend has become such a sartorial hit, Lisa quotes Clare,
“Women are really embracing this trend. It’s part of a wider shift towards more considered buying as one investment offers so many styling opportunities.”
Lisa elaborates, saying,
“Like a dress, trouser suits instantly make you look pulled together and grown up. Unlike a dress, you’re not stuck with the same look time after time.”
Thanks to separate components, you can wear a suit together for a punchy outfit, then wear blazer and trouser individually, styling the former with dresses and denim, the latter with a tee or chunky knit in winter.
What colour to go for
If you’re ready to jump into the trend with both feet, opt for top-to-toe colour like this season’s sugar pink or emerald offerings. But that’s not your only option. Mix-and-matching is an effortless way to ease yourself into the trend:
“If you’re not sure about wearing pink from neck to ankle, co-ordinate. One of ME+EM’s most appealing combinations is this pair of delectable pink kick-flare trousers teamed with a grey and pink checked blazer.”
How to wear it
“I’m 5’4” and as real as they come and if I can wear them, so can everyone”
“If you’re thinking wedding, or Ascot, wear it with a high-necked toning silk blouse. Try a blouse without a collar, that fastens at the back, maybe with a scarf tie. It will sit more neatly under the jacket.”
Try our Halterneck Tops for a flattering evening option. Our tie neck iterations are perfect versatility and a little more drama, or keep it simple with our classic shape which buttons up at the back of the neck.
