Swagger Like Jagger: The Women’s Suit

prada aw15

We’re quickly approaching that time of year when trusty thick coats and chunky boots are pulled from the back of the wardrobe and dusted off ready to battle the dark, unknowing British winter.

But it needn’t be a time of doom and gloom, invest in the right pieces to see you through the chill in style and you’ll find that practical dressing becomes the perfect reason to climb out of your toasty duvet and face the world throughout the season.

A key trend spotted across the A/W 15 womenswear catwalks and a sure-fire way to brighten up the dullest of days is the retro pant suit. With a nod to 60’s and 70’s fashion this trend is the perfect way to keep warm and look sharp whatever the weather.

This is a trend that evokes images of the impeccably chic Bianca Jagger, who showed the Studio ‘54 set a thing or two about balancing feminine and masculine tailoring.

Another great thing about investing in a trouser suit is that you can mix it up and break it down to create multiple looks for your buck!

This is a trend ideal for styling with vintage inspired prints and multiple textures. You can create your own unique take on the look by adding layers of suede, leather and faux fur.

Face the freeze fearlessly this season with a little swagger like Jagger!
