How to style your suit

Glamour (South Africa) - - Trends -

The vel­vet suit

1 Vel­vet is your new goto fabric for evening dress­ing. There are so many ver­sions avail­able that you can mix and match trousers and jack­ets to find your per­fect shape. 2 Opt for a sheer blouse and a flash of skin to break up the look, and avoid tip­ping into the Gothic realm.

The flo­ral suit

1 The se­cret to this suit is in the styling: a bold blouse, over-the-top jewellery and stand-out shoes. Bonus: if you get bored of be­ing bold, dress the suit down with a sim­ple T-shirt or sweater. 2 Opt for a state­ment shoe. At Gucci, the mod­els wore socks with theirs, but we’ll leave that up to you.

The power suit

1 Caramel is the colour for au­tumn and win­ter, so opt for a suit in this shade to breathe new life into the clas­sic. Keep the cut sim­ple and let the colour do the talk­ing. 2Add

a sim­ple cream V-neck, a high-col­lared shirt and sneak­ers, and you’re chic to go.

The checked suit

1 Stick to a man­nish, re­laxed shape for a modern take on the Prince of Wales check suit. Look for a longer length jacket that hits be­low your hips. 2For

a play­ful ef­fect, wear it with a bag in a clash­ing print, such as a leop­ard clutch.
