Suits have been on the agenda for several seasons now, but this winter they’re losing the stuffiness of the boardroom and getting eclectic. From retro corduroy to slinky, Seventies-style velvet, they’re statement-making rather than Everyman, and better still, appealingly affordable.
When it comes to how to wear, firstly, forgo a neatly pressed shirt or crewneck underneath. The bravest suit-wearers are ditching tops altogether, wearing their jackets buttoned or belted and with nothing else.
To make my classical pinstripe suit by Jaxks stand out, I paired it with a powder ribbed top and matching ribbon slippers from H&M.
