There’s something about a well-tailored suit that is so chic and sophisticated. Perfect for the office, a meeting, a spring wedding or just when you want to feel like a boss, there’s a suit for every occasion.
Recently, tailoring has taken a more playful turn with double-breasting, skirt suits and bold prints featuring on the catwalks and high streets. Here are six fresh ways you can wear spring tailoring.
Tartan is usually reserved for autumn and winter palettes but this retro 90s take on a classic print will instantly style up your look. Wear the double breast open and keep accessories, hair and makeup to a minimum as this wonderfully loud pattern will do all the talking.

The double-breast look is featuring everywhere on the high street this spring and a simple tailored blazer can go many ways in your wardrobe. For a well put together office look, wear with either a matching pair of trousers or black skirt. For a weekend look, wear a slouchy T tucked into jeans with the blazer thrown over your shoulders for casual class.

An oversized block-coloured blazer and a pelmet skirt can be a strikingly cool look, especially in powder blue. Wear this look at a weekend brunch with some mules or sling-back heels to continue the retro vibes. A coral-tone red lip will set off the blue and make you look fresher than spring.

Step aside Coco Chanel, this Zara version of the tweed suit is bringing all the chic. We’re loving this wrap skirt suit with front patch pockets, frayed trims and gem snap buttons. Wear with a chiffon blouse or velvet bag to break up the textures.

This one is a head-turner. Wear this blazer as a funky fashion statement and don’t be scared to clash prints. Wear over a pair of crepe culottes or blue jeans for a look that will see you into summer. For a more toned-down print, go for the black and white floral alternative.
