This September, we’ll be taking our fashion inspiration from our inner student. It’s back to school – or in our case, back to business. Naturally a new term means a fresh set of garms, and nothing says power dressing like a suit. This season’s twist on tailoring gives a nod to the 80s aesthetic: think oversized shoulders, double-breasted jackets and oh-so-fabulously baggy silhouettes. To keep things on the right side of executive chic, look to the queen of effortless French style, Isabel Marant.
How To Wear
The most obvious way to work the new suit is to keep things simple. All you need is to do is layer your loose-cut tailoring over a simple tee, shirt or roll neck. If you want to take things to the next fashion level, we recommend tucking the jacket into a pair of high-waisted, wide leg trousers. This means the jacket doubles up as a top and by drawing in at the waist the overall look is more flattering. Forget layering anything else underneath or over the top, just add a pair of oversized earrings and hey presto – your boardroom awaits.
