A navy pinstripe power suit is a LOOK! I’ve always adored a tailored female suit and this ASOS Design navy pinstripe 2-piece suit certainly commands attention. The oversized pinstripe blazer is a unique extended length and the waist belt wraps around twice to cinch in the waist, creating a feminine waistline. The trousers are the perfect length; having long legs is a blessing but a curse when trying to find trousers long enough. These trousers brush my ankle lengthening the leg. I styled the suit with ASOS patent beige heels with ankle-tie. The wide lapel and pocket details makes the suit.
You cannot go wrong with a powerful red suit. Female suiting is a favourite style of mine, but I rarely find suit trousers that fit correctly or look long enough. This OhPolly suit is a head turner, the cropped blazer length, flared leg and bright red colour make a flawless co-ord. I wore tan Stradivarius braided mules with the suit to give a neutral contrast against the popping red.

And I think to myself…what a STRANGE world! But, we’ve still got it make it wonderful! We are all living in a bizarre dystopian world; it’s transporting me back to A-level English studying The Handmaids Tale! Of course, health is everybody’s priority and my thoughts are with our amazing NHS and keyworkers that are working so hard for us all. Currently grounded from Uni, I am relishing in the excuse to relax and for once I feel as though I have time to plan things that I have wanted to achieve for so long. My blog regretfully hasn’t been the top of my checklist as I’m in third year studying Fashion Marketing and Management and everything just seemed to get in the way! However, now this permitted break is allowing me to reignite my passion for blogging. I’m thinking of fusing my love for styling and my knowledge from university studying fashion marketing to create a vlog series or podcast, as well as looking to start a newsletter tailored to inspire you at the beginning of each month. A lot to look forward to! If you’re sat there incredibly bored, try to find a new passion to ignite whether it’s learning to play an instrument, reading countless books or learning a new language.
To LIGHTEN the mood…here is my favourite look to date – THINK PINK! A traditionally male style in popping pink – yes please! I adore female suiting, it’s not only empowering but also très chic. This suit from ASOS is sourced from Topshop. My guilty pleasure is looking at new-in everyday! While scrolling through ASOS new-in I immediately stopped as I saw this incredible suit. The HOT pink colour caught my eye, as well as the unique button formation. The cropped style blazer is so fashionable. Obviously paired with the matching peg trousers the look pops but the blazer can be paired with blue or white denim jeans or shorts also for a more relaxed style. Once the look arrived I was delighted with the fit; the trousers nipped in at the waist and the blazer was cropped at the perfect length.
I styled my egret Converse boots to compliment the vivid colourway of the suit; the off-white shade balances the look. The boots tone down the formality of the look, adding a relaxed, sassy edge. I finished the look with my Ralph Lauren white bag with gold detailing and ring handle. The white accessories provide that essential colour contrast. I would wear this look for a Spring day shopping, a day at a fashion job or a fun lunch-date (which we are all looking so forward to at the moment!). The look could be paired with tie-ankle sandals and a clutch for an evening look.

Who doesn’t love a suit?! This one is perfect for in-between the spring and summer months. There is nothing smarter than a suit co-ord for a Spring/Summer evening out or holiday wear. This Primark suit has a tailored businesswoman style with a striking Ivory and deep Navy statement stripe. Paired with an H&M bralette and Primark stilettos the look becomes more fashion forward and youthful. The white lace bralette adds texture against the clean linen of the suit; creating contrasting fabrics, which is strong for this season. A classic white T and Sneakers would create a more casual edge. Bringing back the 60’s – the first era where pantsuits stormed female fashion, suits are still key and more relevant in current feminine fashion. Styling the hair with a relaxed beach-wave adds a refreshing uncomplicated look while a simple twisted topknot or low bun crafts a more sophisticated chic. This suit is perfectly seductive with a rebellious twist and a hint of nostalgia; all the requirements to kill it!

Head to toe in eye-popping florals, this co-ord silk suit is undoubtedly a look-at-me style choice. The waist-enhancing tie belt contributes a sense of shape to the suit, contrasting against the loose flowing form. The gold trimmed pearl buttons embellish the cuff of the kimono style, wrap blazer in a subtle, yet classy way providing yet another key trend of Summer 2017. The cropped, loose fit trouser compliments the jacket to create a relaxed, slouchy suit. The background of perfect mid-blue against the striking bold summer florals packs a punch, but it works! The curious new Citrine colour of the stilettos and clutch (so ‘en Vogue’) is a sophisticated tone against the intense hues of the floral suit.
