The Best of Women’s Suit Street Style
Flannel Double-Breasted Suit
This flannel suit is a true Winter classic. The relaxed trousers and double-breasted jacket feel very modern and wearable. Layered with a blue shirt and camel sweater, this would work beautifully for business/casual.
Retro Micro-Pattern Suit
The micro-pattern in this suit’s cloth gives it a retro 1970s feel. Because of this unique fabric, the rest of the suit has been kept very simple. The contrasting horn buttons used for the fastening are a lovely detail.
Saccharine Sweet Suit
Considering that it is candyfloss pink, this suit could look extremely girly, however, the relaxed fit and the edgy styling gives it a masculine edge that is a lot cooler. Layering a rollneck sweater under a suit is a great way to rock cold weather tailoring, so take note!
Hourglass Double-Breasted Suit
What a beautiful fit! Double-breasted jackets are notoriously difficult to fit properly, so this must be bespoke. Look at the way the jacket nips in at the waist – there is no draping or puckering anywhere. We also love how the pockets sit high on the waist to make the most of her great figure.
Peaky Blindersesque Suit
The styling here is excellent. Wearing a three-piece check suit with a baker boy cap could look cartoonish, but this woman looks absolutely fantastic. The check in the suit feels subtle and summery but could become more wintery with other accessories.
Tomboy Blue Suit
In many ways, this suit is pretty simple with a single button jacket and high-waisted trousers. However, the superb colour and wide lapels really set this apart. When worn with a plain white t-shirt and tortoiseshell wayfarers, this becomes a very cool, androgynous look.
Graphic Monochrome Jacket
Wearing suits as separates has been a major trend for menswear for a while now, so it’s no wonder that it is also a feature in women’s wardrobes too. This geometric, monochrome jacket is incredibly striking! Wearing it with a black t-shirt and trousers makes a statement without looking too fussy.

An increasing number of companies are adopting a less formal office dress code these days, with fewer businesses expecting their male employees to show up in a suit and tie. Instead, the new watchword is ‘smart-casual’. But where does that leave the suit lover?Style Tips & Advice Business Style
The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern. But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.Style Tips & Advice Style History
The new Peaky Blinders series is back with a bang and we’re not just talking about the storylines. As ever, Tommy and his crew look as sharp as the razor blades the real-life Peaky Blinder gang were rumoured to stitch into the peak of their flat caps.Style Tips & Advice Celebrity Style Style History
