The Statement Suit
Get down to business in style with the playful pantsuit.
Forget the streamlined pencil skirt – a chic pantsuit is the perfect investment for your wardrobe.
Still ladylike, elegant and with a hint of androgynous cool – the pantsuit is powerful for business or play.
Appearing across the Fall runways, neatly cropped trousers and sharply tailored jackets offered a refreshingly modern alternative to the skirtsuit. From Prada to Chanel, Louis Vuitton to Bottega Veneta, and more, designers were inspired by powerful dressing. However, with a focus on clean lines and refined cuts, you don’t need to flashback to 80’s shoulder pads and exaggerated silhouettes. These pantsuits are luxe, chic and impeccably cool.
At Prada, trousers were cropped to just above the ankle and slightly flared – evoking a vintage 60’s nostalgia. Bursting in vivid solid colours – from neon tangerine to purple – or covered in hypnotically alluring prints; Prada pantsuits were a sensory overload. Meanwhile at Bottega Veneta, cropped trousers were worn with streamlined double-breasted coats in luxe dark hues.
The perfect pair of trousers, worn with an exquisitely tailored jacket, can slim and flatter your body in mesmerising ways. If you do invest in a pantsuit for Fall, be sure to carefully consider the fit, quality and silhouette.
