The plaid suit

Lately, menswear-inspired separates have been popping up on street style stars, proving that you can wear a ‘girlboss’ suit anywhere and everywhere. Whether you experiment with bold colour or stick with neutreals, the result is a guaranteed pulled-together look. There are so many variations of wearing this trend, from a looser shape and maximalist patterns, classic checks and sporty variatons – the options are endless.

So if you’re put-off by the prospect of tomboyish tailoring or the fear of being swamped in too much fabric, there’s tons of silhouettes to choose from: thinking of culottes, flares, and high-waisted cigarette pants. And beyond cuts, it’s easy to get even more creative with bold colors and sumptuous textures, like velvet or corduroy.

If you’re looking for an easy entry point into the suit, then a fast-fashion take on the heritage check is the perfect place to start. The trend of the plaid blazer was spotted more than any other and they were selling out left and right, from the wallet-friendly options from Zara to the splurge-worthy options from Tibi or Gucci. I’ve got my suit from Zara and always take the blazer one size bigger,  to get the oversized feeling and it gives you room for turtlneck-collars and cozy knits underneath it to keep you warm during winter. For an elegant update on your work uniform you can wear a lace camisole with heels or if you like it more easygoing throw on sneakers and t-shirts/sweaters. I really love the versatility about the suit trend. And how about you?:)

This is going to be my last post this year as we’re going on holidays this Thursday for 3 weeks but I will surely post some pictures on Instagram. I want to thank you, my dear readers and followers for your continued support throughout the year and I look forward to sharing even more fashion blog posts with you in 2018.

Wish you all happy holidays and a good start into the new year!:)

Much love, C.
