Matching your blazer to your trousers (or vice-versa) is one of the most popular trends and I’m here for it – remember this Banana Republic suit from NYFW in September? Well, I decided to style a similar version in Milan (not photographed) and again in Paris.
And while styling a suit can feel slightly intimidating and stuffy, it was surprisingly simple to style. Beyond cuts, it’s easy to get even more creative with bold colors: red and yellow or ultra violet-my preference and sumptuous textures, like velvet, corduroy or top it with a faux fur coat like I did for this look.
So when we booked our trip to Europe I knew that I wanted to have another suit moment, this time in Ultra Violet…from head to toe.
According to our friends over at PANTONE our color of the year is dramatically provocative and a thoughtful purple shade? OK. Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future…
Do you agree with PANTONE?
Or is this just a lovely shade of purple?
