The Best of Women’s Suit Street Style
Yesterday was International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate the amazing ladies in our life. To mark this occasion, we are doing a street style special on the world of women’s suits.
There is nothing chicer or more powerful than a woman in a suit. The stylish suits we have featured below range from flowing and feminine to edgy and androgynous in everything from mid-grey to pastel pink.
Scroll down and get inspired by our favourite women’s suits as seen on the streets of the world’s most fashionable cities…
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.

November is World Vegan Month, when vegans around the world celebrate their lifestyle choice and champion others to do the same. And it seems more and more of us are making the switch. In 2018, there were 3.5 million registered vegans in the UK, up from around 540,00 in 2016, according to a study by The Vegan Society, which just happens to be celebrating its 75th birthday in 2019.Style Tips & Advice Celebrity Style
When it comes to style superstars, there is none more seminal, more chameleon-like and more innovative than David Bowie. As you may remember, we included the iconic star's ever-evolving look in our recent blog post on the suits that rocked. That’s why we were over the moon when Professor of Film and Cultural Studies, Dr Will Brooker, approached us to make a copy of Bowie’s legendary mustard-yellow suit.Celebrity Style King & Allen News
Creating the perfect suit starts with a high-quality fabric. That’s why we work closely with renowned luxury cloth merchant, Holland & Sherry, to make sure we have the world’s best possible cloths available for our clients. While we place great value on traditional methods – for example some of Holland & Sherry’s pattern weaving hasn’t changed in 200 years – we also believe in keeping one eye firmly on the very latest bespoke tailoring technologies.Style History King & Allen News
