Available in a variety of silhouettes, fabrics, prints and colours, there is a suit for every body and every occasion. As these ladies show, you can wear a suit to an awards ceremony, a book launch, or just for running around town by following these basic rules.
Owen paired her oversized Hvrminn oxblood suit with a crisp white button-down, Ray-Ban glasses and penny loafers. To keep the look fresh, she forgoes hair and makeup, resulting in an insouciant, minimalistic look.
To present Christopher Kane with his Fashion Star award during the 30th Annual Night of Stars event last month, Chung donned a jewel-accented, cropped suit from his S/S 14 collection. By scrunching the sleeves, wearing hefty sandals, and keeping her signature hair and makeup unchanged, Chung wears the look with the same ease as a pair of denim cutoffs.
En route to the Haider Ackermann S/S 14 show, de Maigret opted for a collarless olive green suit and simple black accessories. Note how the blouse does not have a collar or a high neck? All the better for appreciating the jacket’s neckline.
For a recent Chanel Couture show, Doillon channeled Katherine Hepburn in this oversized double-breasted Chanel suit. Thanks to its rich blue colour and her layered necklaces, the look reads bohemian rather than corporate.
Beckham tempers the drama of her knee-length tuxedo blazer with cropped black pants and a simple white blouse, all from her own collection, at a book launch in London on November 18th.
Oxana Ong bravely wore a three-piece pinstriped suit, complete with a red pocket square. When tackling a look this bold, make sure to follow her lead with stiletto pumps and sleek hair.
The white bag plays brilliantly off the white buttons on this Louis Vuitton double-breasted, blue wide-legged suit, spotted during Fashion Month. Note that makeup and accessories are minimal.
The effortless appeal of this suit is based in its slouchy fit, especially styled with a cross-body bag and simple sandals. When wearing an oversized silhouette like these pants, make sure to keep your accessories streamlined.
