The new trouser suits for women

The Guardian - Weekend - - Starters Contents -

Fashion is smarten­ing up for au­tumn, with tai­lor­ing back on the cool list. This is a trend that can be em­braced with a trouser suit, such as Pam’s Prince of Wales check or Flossie’s candy pink. Or go for mix­ing and match­ing: Lavinia’s wide-legged blue trousers and con­trast­ing beige jacket would be Katharine Hepburn-ap­proved, while Valerie’s clas­sic blazer worn with cropped trousers – and con­ver­sa­tional ear­rings – looks ef­fort­lessly chic. Elee’s look has it all: it’s arty, smart and cool. Me­lanie Wilkin­son
