What’s new in summer suiting?
Women’s suits continue to appeal, and for summer there are two key approaches. Colourful ensembles in pastel shades will lift even the most beige workplace; pair with trainers and tee for some polished downtime. Camilla and Marc has a suit in pistachio (camillaandmarc.com), Manning Cartell in aqua (manningcartell.com.au) and Scanlan Theodore in cream (scanlantheodore.com). Or head back to the ’70s with flared or wide-legged trouser suits: Rebecca Vallance has a windowpane check with flared pants and cunningly cut doublebreasted jacket (rebeccavallance.com); and Alice McCall has navy and lilac-blue variations with gold buttons (alicemccall.com.au). Zimmermann’s pinstripe suit will have you thinking of cocktails in Cuba (pictured, jacket, $1100, trousers, $550, vest, $595, zimmermannwear.com).
