What I Wore: The New Suit

The suit is no longer just a corporate wardrobe staple. This mainstay of many an office look has become quite the trend, with more options for modern, fashion forward suiting available. Bright, vibrant suits in shades of everything from red to the sky blue one I’m wearing below have become a great go-to for those times when you need a dressy look. Plus for those wanting to do something a little different a suit has also become a sleek alternative to wearing a dress.

Whilst suits can vary in price point, a good quality one can be quite expensive. For this reason I am loving this Iris and Ink option from The Outnet. As the in-house label of the online destination it’s an affordable, well-made option for those wanting to dip their toe in this trend. I am also loving the hue which is striking without being too over the top.

If you’re planning to wear this suit somewhere that’s a little more conservative then definitely add a blouse or cami underneath. However wearing the blazer as a top can be a sexy option for those times when you want to wear something with a little more edge.

As I was already opting for a colourful look I wanted to continue theme into my accessories. Pink sunglasses provided the ideal complementary colour to this suit and add a touch of fun. Star shaped earrings by Holly Ryan give this look a youthful teach and is the ideal finishing touch for such a bold, striking look.
