The suit trend is showing no way of slowing down for the new season, and we are here for the rethinking of the once stuffy and old-fashioned silhouette.
Suits are an easy outfit that will instantly make you feel powerful and look effortlessly on trend.
Springtime saw our Instagram feeds awash with pastel shades and statement shoulders when it came to suits, but what does the new season mean for our beloved suit trend?
Suits for AW18/19 are all about the textures. The new season is bringing interest to our old season favourites, adding some corduroy or velvet for a classic seasonal twist.
And it’s time to kiss goodbye to the candy sweet shades of summertime and say hello to the prints and ochre to rust shades for the new season.
Whether it’s workwear or for an evening out, we always feel ready for anything with a bit of check.
The trend of last season is seeing no sign of slowing, with Versace’s catwalk spilling over with the bold fabric.
So work that Cher from clueless vibe and opt for either a classic but statement grey check, or go for a coloured check for an updated take on the style.

Corduroy is no longer just for toddlers or your year 8 geography teacher – the 70s style fabric is having a serious renaissance.
Never thought you’d wear a suit and now you’ve got about ten? Say hello to your new style essential – corduroy. So what’s better than a corduroy suit? Nothing…
Opt for rich shades to complement the texture and grooves of this material. It tends to sit a bit stiffer due to the thicker material, but for the colder months it’s perfect.
Tweed is an Autumn essential, adding an instant bit of glamour and with the added bit of insulation to top it all off.
The catwalks for AW18 were awash with tweed, from Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang, and it’s sure to be a huge hit for this season.
A tweed skirt suit is the perfect way to change up your suit style with an added bit of texture. With this look, you can either go classic with a very Chanel style vibe. Or add a sporty twist with a zip up roll neck underneath and trainers for an ath-luxe feel.

Velvet is always a strong partywear season favourite, and this year it’s no different. From rich purples and greens to soft pinks and yellows – velvet is a texture that we can never get enough of.
Pairing velvet with suits is a perfect way to soften the edges of a formal style. Velvet suits tend to be less structured so offer a more laidback and casual way to wear the style for the everyday.
Wear with pearl accessories and a mini bucket style bag for effortless opulence that will make you feel chic and glamourous.
