After scrolling through all of the street style images from the recent fashion shows, one trend simply cannot be ignored. The humble trouser suit, once synonymous with corporate workwear and stuffy offices has well and truly made its name in fashion as a staple look, especially so over the past few years. Far from classic black tapered leg trousers and nipped in blazers, the two-piece has developed into something taking on many different forms, colours and shapes. From blush pinks and bright yellows to creamy caramels and of course, this season’s favourite colour, green. There’s so many lust-worthy pairings available to shop now, we don’t know how we’re going to choose which ones to invest in for autumn/winter.
The popularity of a trouser suit is no surprise given that it’s basically an outfit all-in-one. It serves the same 'throw on' purpose as a dress in the mornings when you’ve suddenly lost the ability to dress yourself (we’ve all had those moments, am I right?). And let's not underestimate the added 80’s-power-woman vibes a suit has.
Sure, there are a number of layering options you can play with. Trainers or boots? A polo neck or silk blouse? Wearing a lace cami (or even nothing underneath) is a great way to take any suit from casual to date-night ready in an instant. But when it comes down to it, all you really need to make a suit work is a crisp T-shirt - easy.
We’ve rounded up some of the best trouser suits for you below. Whether you’re in the mood to stand out (that green Bella Freud style will do the trick), or keep it classic with a checked number, the suit is well and truly here to stay.
