Recently, at the 2015 SAG Awards, the incredible Julia Roberts arrived on the red carpet in a simple black suit over the choice of a gown or overflowing dress that many women would opt for during any celebrity calendar event.
Personally, with the turn of the new year, which means a refresher course on style, I think that suits for any occasion is the way forward!
While I wouldn’t expect any fabulous woman to be in the SU busting some moves in a Topshop co-ord suit (blazer and all!) because normally, an occasion like an awards ceremony or ball would be a perfect opportunity for an outfit that brings the feminine-meets-masculine trend to life.
Aforementionmed Topshop do an incredible selection of ‘co-ords’ for any occasion, so do Zara, River Island and ASOS. From the blazer/short to sweater/skirt combination, these high street and online stores really do cater for all sizes, budgets and personal styles. Whether you’re going to be as daring as Julia Roberts (right) or Olivia Wilde (below) and opt for just a bra underneath, or play it cool like Lorde (below) and wear a crop top or vest, there are so many ways that suits can really be made to look as versatile as they definitely are.
In addition, Topshop have a really good range of lace bralets if you want to mix up the coverable and the simply gorgeous with your outfit choice.
With the awards season around the corner, I think that a good suit (such as the incredible Saint Laurent choices) will be a winning choice for any outfit. Check out some of these leading ladies who opted for the matchy-matchy look over the last few years:
So it really is the season to suit up! Barney Stinson would be proud.
