Not sure if you have noticed it but pant suits are everywhere. And I really do mean pant suits (or trousers suits to avoid confusion in the UK). The high street stores are stocked with trouser suits in every colour imaginable – and in every print.
I don’t know when this happened but I was doing my usual online browsing and Zara is full of suits in some crazy colours and prints. Now these looks really lovely but these are not suits you can actually wear to work in a bank. Or a law firm. Or any office where you actually wear suits to work. I know its very confusing but let me explain. These are fashion suits – you are not actually meant to go to work in them (although I did think this green one could stretch to being somewhat wearable? Just don’t wear it around Christmas time).
- They are in crazy colours.
These are not colours most people wear to work. I assure you even the craziest colleague at work will not turn up in fuchsia trousers and a double-breasted fuchsia jacket. Although this outfit does make me wish someone would!
2. They are in crazy prints.
I think this is the effect of the summer floral mixed with this suit trend. I love it but could anyone wear this to work? I definitely cannot imagine wearing this to my work place. Where I can imagine this is at Friday night drinks!
This polka dotted suit is slightly more interesting than the normal boring black but not completely covered with crazy prints and could work for office.
3. They are quirky styles.
I really loved this pink gilet suit jacket – its so chic! I have been really debating getting a black one which might be easier for me to actually wear. You will also find loads of pant suits with exaggerated sleeves or with cold shoulder jackets. Whether I like it or not I appreciate the effort and ideas!
All of the suits and trousers I liked are linked below. What do you think of this trend? Would you actually wear a suit outside of work? This trend did give me some kind of inspiration – I need to get out my boring grey lawyer suit and get it to work a bit. Lets see what I can come up with that!
