    I’ve loved trouser suits for years, and wear one for nearly every important social occasion in my calendar. I’m even wearing one in my HELLO! profile picture. 

    I don’t know what it is, but when I wear a suit I just feel like I have my life together. I feel like a confident girl boss. I feel like I can do anything. I also love that I don’t have to think too much about an outfit as a whole.

    It’s not just me who loves a power suit. Celebrities and influencers, and royals love to dress in a two-piece. Whether it’s Joey King wearing a green Bella Freud suit, or supermodel Naomi Campbell in fuschia pink, Katie Holmes in white with a colour pop shoe, or Duchess Kate in purple – a smart trouser suit makes for a great outfit choice.

    How to style a trouser suit

    You have three ways you can wear a suit. Casual for daytime (see Hailey Bieber for inspiration – or look to Trinny Woodall on Instagram), smart and elegant like Victoria Beckham, or as evening formalwear à la Blake Lively. As a side note: My obsession with suits wouldn’t be a thing if I had to wear them for work – I can totally understand if you want to opt out of this trend because you feel like it’s ‘boring workwear’. However, you could try a more relaxed approach to a trouser suit, or choose a colour you wouldn’t dare wear in the boardroom. 

    Casual like Hailey Bieber, smart like Victoria Beckham or dressy like Blake Lively? The choice is yours!

    Can you wear a trouser suit to a wedding?

    Definitely. If you’re wearing a trouser suit to a wedding, obviously don’t opt for white (unless you’re the bride!) and go for bright or pastel colours instead. Or even a printed suit for extra impact.

    How to dress down a trouser suit for daytime

    If you want to dress down a trouser suit, it’s easy! Team with a a pair of Superga trainers, Nike trainers or Veja trainers and a slogan tee. Trinny Woodall is the queen of power dressing in sneaks. 

    Trinny often wears her power suits with comfy trainers – and always looks styish!

    What shoes to wear with a trouser suit? 

    For a special occasion, I like teaming a trouser suit with a sexy stilettto or a strappy sandal in the summer. A seamstress once told me that if you’re wearing wide-leg trousers, the hem should fall halfway down the heel. Also, don’t underestimate the fashion trainer – I love wearing my suits in the day or out to dinner with a pair of Veja trainers and a simple white tee. Flat shoes can be tricky, but ideally you would see some skin – you don’t want to look like the trousers are wearing you.
