Transitional trends don’t get much easier than the suit; it can be layered up or down depending on the conditions and the occasion and adds effortless polish to your cross-seasonal style in an instant.

On the runway peak lapels and pastel tones of peach and lemon featured in Etro’s suit offering while Alexa Chung went all white with a double breasted suit paired simply with a plain button-down beneath.  Be inspired by Tibi and combine two trends in one with a masculine fit suit in beige, the neutral colour trend that’s big news this season.

The suit is a versatile investment piece to wear at almost anytime as the lines continue  to blur between day to night dressing and work to weekend wear. Choose trainers to dress down your suit now and smarten up with a high-heeled sandal come summer.

Elevate your two-piece in the fashion stakes with top-to-toe tonal dressing as seen at Giorgio Armani and choose your accessories to match the block colour of your suit.

Style tip: While the SS19 trend is to wear your coordinating blazer and trousers together as a suit, get the most out of your purchase by wearing as separates for endless outfit options. Try your block colour blazer over a monotone dress in the same colour family, or your suit trousers with a blouse and trench coat for more on-trend outfit options.
