Trend Report: The Off-Duty Suit

The suit has left the confines of the boardroom and taken to the streets to add playful structure to our off-duty wardrobes. Tapered trousers with a matching blazer are having a lengthy moment in the trend spotlight, as seen on Argentinian model Mica Arganaraz at Chloé A/W 15 and rejuvenated with new-season flair by street style stars at S/S 16 fashion week.

Take a cue from the A/W 15 catwalk collections at Dior, Christopher Kane and Gucci—wear your two-piece with a natty shirt (zero tie) or a wool beret for a fashion formula that means serious business.

A jersey T-shirt lends a casual edge to striped suits. Take note.

Wide-leg trousers and '70s flares are still on the style agenda for autumn 2015.

Keep accessories and jewellery to a minimum when going for head-to-toe monochrome.

Undone hair is a must when wearing a high-octane suit.

Swap a shirt for a natty blouse, like Linda Tol at Milan Fashion Week S/S 16.

Match your printed T-shirt to the detailing on your off-duty suit. 

Before the autumn chill sets in, wear your tailored waistcoats and sleeveless blazers with a silk cami.
