A suit is a suit, is a suit is it???

The answer is NO – even suit trends change and whilst you can get away with wearing your standard suit, why not put some pep into your corporate wear!

3 Easy Tips:

1) Update the Trousers

Trouser trend in general is much more leisurely moving away from tailored fit to the pleated baggy look – brilliant much more comfy.

Version 2

Note the length of the trousers too – time to have them just about ankle length – brilliant in winter as you can combine with patterned stockings for a bit of extra fun.

I bought these Rue Blanche Trousers in eclectic and simply combined them with a vintage Boss jacket – as they are both wool you could never tell they weren’t an actual suit from the start – excellent (cost cutting and being trendy all in one!).


2) Add a Jacket with a Difference

This is Veronica who I stumbled across in Zurich on her way home from work:

Version 2

Looks like she has decided MaxMara is her look for this coming fall 😉


Her Jacket H&M has the most discrete yet differentiating black embroider pattern over the front – giving it a very posh D&G look to it! Skirt – Schumacher,  Shoes – Walder, Shirt – Massimo Dutti

Here some cute online jackets you might like to try:

3) Add some Red-Mulberry to your look

Seriously Fall/Winter 2015 is all about the colour red – in particular that beautiful rich mulberry red – wonderful and warm for the cold winter days…
