Undoubtably this years biggest trend is the Pant Suit. With a gentle nod to the 80s power suit, this years pants suits are empowering and sexier than ever. If you feel you are ready for something different then why not shelve your dresses and skirts in favour of a pant suit. I’ve put together a collection of my favourite looks from Paris Haute Couture Week, featuring pants and jumpsuits.
I’ve channeled the Swinging Sixties with this pant and shirt ensemble. This mustard shade is so reminiscent of the iconic Sixties outfits. We saw Miu Miu and Dior both pull from this era in their collections this year. I love to give a modern outfit a little retro twist. This particular hue of yellow was showcased heavily at London Fashion Week so expect to see a lot more of it over the next few seasons. Although its an unusual colour you’ll find it incredibly easy to add to your existing wardrobe.
Red is the colour of love. What could be more perfect to wear in Paris than a ravishingly red jumpsuit. The tailored cut to this piece makes it the perfect evening outfit, giving off that effortlessly chic look. The simplicity speaks volumes. With a deliciously red lip and some gentle tousled waves this is my favourite Parisian date night ensemble. Whether you need something office ready or wedding worthy, there’s a jumpsuit to fit every occasion. They have never been more popular. This season we saw Gucci give a playful seventies vibe on the jumpsuit, while Tod’s kept them simple and elegant.
My top tip for a cool and chic look has to be a big belted jacket. Add some matching trousers and you are just on to a winner. Wide belts are incredibly flattering, cinching in your waist. You can quickly update your wardrobe by adding a chunky belt to any outfit. I love the gentle suggestion of a safari suit, the ultimate in hot weather wear. This gorgeous golden shade looks great this time of year, glistening in the midday sun. This creamy shade is called Almond Buff and is currently enjoying its time in the spotlight. It’s the perfect colour to take you through to autumn and winter this year. Many designers are using it head to toe. Jason Wu displayed beautiful floor length textured overcoats. At Cushnie et Ochs the models looked dreamy in satiny Almond Buff gowns. I love having an alternative to white in the summer, similarly something different to black in the winter.
I always add some coral to my summer wardrobe. It’s such a pretty and feminine shade that I feel really represents the warm and sunny days of summer. It’s an incredibly flattering colour to every skin tone. These wide leg trousers are bang on trend this year and look so fresh paired with a crisp white shirt.
Black and white check is so chic. We saw all different types of checks on the catwalks earlier this year, and there aren’t going anyway just yet. I think check are so multi seasonal, this outfit in particular will easily see you through to autumn and winter. I love this pussy bow shirt and matching trouser combo. It’s effortlessly stylish and can be dressed up or down. I teamed this two piece with some neon yellow heels and clutch. Against the black and white check, they really pop and add a little flirty fun. I think by adding some simple black heels and a black Birkin you have the ultimate boardroom meeting outfit.
