Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

SHORT AND SWEET

From office chic to best-dressed wedding guest, a cropped suit is surprisingly versatile – and on trend for summer

Sophisticated suits are big news this season: look at the catwalks and you’ll see a palette of spice rack-infused shades complementing soft, Nineties-inspired tailoring. Our favourite find is this terracotta ensemble. Boasting a flattering fit and an eye-catching shade, it’ll cast aside any preconceptions you have about suits being dull. Wear it with a white shirt and minimalist mules for a modern take on workwear, or dress down with a simple T-shirt and trainers for the weekend. It’s also the perfect choice for a head-turning wedding guest look. If you don’t fancy wearing shorts or the weather isn’t cooperating (we hear you), there’s a straight-cut trouser option, so you can tailor the look to your needs.

suit: it’s the cool way to do
work-to-weekend dressing”
