A sharp trouser suit is always a wise investment thanks to its versatility, but this season’s key styles pack a fashionable punch too

The colour-pop trouser suit

Vibrant trouser suits have been gaining popularity in recent years and continue to be hot news for spring/summer 2024. Our favourite find is this seriously eye-catching pink single-breasted blazer and ankle-grazing pleated trousers ensemble from Jaeger’s latest collection. With a cool, slouchy fit and head-turning shade, it’ll cast aside any preconceptions you have about suits being dull.

Wear the jacket with a white T-shirt and box-fresh trainers for a modern take on smart-casual or get occasion-ready with a slinky camisole and minimalist mules. If you don’t fancy wearing as a suit or the weather isn’t cooperating, there’s always the option of layering the jacket over a dress or teaming the trousers with a cashmere crew neck sweater, so you can tailor the look to your needs.

The striped trouser suit

A nautical double-breasted blazer works just as well for meetings in the city as it does with leather flatform sandals for more casual outings. Invest in Jaeger’s cotton-rich suit jacket and wear on high-rotation throughout the warmer months, alternating with Bermuda shorts, column skirts and even jeans for maximum versatility. The co-ordinating cotton-rich trousers feature a classic wide leg and an elasticated waistband for all-day comfort. Gild the look with subtle jewellery and add a roomy tophandle tote bag for on-the-go days – you might just wonder how you lived without a trouser suit.

The classic cream suit

Time for a sartorial palate cleanser? Enter the neutral-toned trouser suit. Nothing signals the arrival of the new season better than light-reflecting ecru, cream or white, making it a smart colour choice for warm weather. Jaeger’s double-breasted cotton jacket and straight-leg trousers will form the backbone of your spring wardrobe, looking impeccable worn as a suit with a contrasting blouse or mixed and matched with your existing outfit staples. Dare to bare? Wear with nothing underneath for a sleek evening look.

Make a vibrant shift or slip dress instantly occasion-worthy by adding a white suit jacket (pinning a corsage on the lapel for the final flourish) or dress down with a striped Breton top and chinos for a chic look ideal for a day at the races or a trip to Henley boat race.
