It's Time To Man Up | This Season's Must Have Suits

We’ll fess up to flicking through GQ and snooping at the dapper gents. And yes, a man in a well-tailored suit will always turn our heads. But enough about them!

Somehow the ladies pant suit is having a major moment in the limelight in a huge variety of ways – 70’s inspired, high waist, wide legged, relaxed boyfriend or cigarette leg tuxedos with sans anything underneath. Ooh la la! And colours! Monochromatic, colour blocked, plaid, prints, blends and sateens. The list goes on.

The pantsuit is super versatile, and perhaps it’s never gone out of style for that reason. It’s not limited to the boardroom or office and is versatile no matter the season. In winter it offers the holy grail of fashion choices – it keeps you warm and looking polished.

We’ve compiled our list of pointers, along with some helpful examples for your next outfit inspo.

Pants, regardless of cut are on the higher side. A waistband that sits at or a little below your natural waist is the most flattering.

All over print looks amazing on its own – keep your heels and accessories minimal and of colours that match in with the print.

Flat shoes also work a treat and push your look into a relaxed nonchalance. Looser, boyfriend cuts are perfect for some sneaker action.

Or some brogue/loafer style shoes if you want to keep things more slimline and rocker.

And you can’t talk about suit pointers without mentioning Tilda Swinton at the 2012 Golden Globes. You just can’t! Bold and captivating as per usual in a lush pastel take on the classic tailored suit, designed by Haider Ackermann. Who knew pastels could look this powerful?! What makes this look work especially is the mix of fabric type within the one shade. Mixing sateen with matte finish fabrics keeps it modern.

Power to ya, ladies!
