The One Suit Your Wardrobe Needs


If you buy one tailored look this season…

Suiting is back in a big way and whilst tradition dictates that it’s place is primarily in the boardroom, recent years have been hinting at its relevance just about anywhere other than an office environment. Fluid lines, slouchy silhouettes and exploded heritage check reference bygone decades in a way that (ironically) feels wholly modern. Whoever you look to for style reference, be it 1970s icon Lauren Hutton or London-based fashion journalist and street style favourite, Pandora Sykes, there’s a chance you’ll find a way to work the look in a way that’s right for you.

For now, it’s the Pixie tailoring series that we’re championing with its wide-set pinstripe design, loose cut and luxe wool-rich blend. Versatile, effortless and undeniably fashion-forward when styled right, you might just be surprised at how much wear you’ll get out of it this season. We list the various ways to wear it and celebrate how it will best fit into your calendar. 

For lunch with your most fashionable friends

The style set’s affection for the suit is seemingly an unstoppable force and as such, your most fashion-focused group of friends will undoubtedly appreciate the full coordinating look for any collective rendezvous that you’ve got in the diary. City lunches require something a little polished and a lot comfortable and that’s exactly what the Pixie does so well. Layer it over a slim-fitting roll neck or a silk blouse, adding statement earrings and a slash of bold lipstick to take your lunch with a side of 70s glamour.

For a Sunday art gallery visit

For a long time now, jeans and a blazer have been the go-to combination when mastering the age-old styling term ‘smart-casual’. This season however, our advice is to keep things fresh. How? It’s all in the blazer. Silhouettes come oversized, longline and double-breasted and the pale-grey shade of the Pixie will reference spring in the subtlest manner and offer the perfect contrast to a certain shade of indigo denim that no wardrobe should be without. For a true fashion-girl slant, wear it buttoned up, belted at the waist and layered underneath a midi-length overcoat in a complimentary shade. 

For work

Gone are the days when most offices expect a fully tailored look on the daily but there’s no denying the pull of power dressing every now and then. For an approachable take on suiting separates, wear the Pixie trousers with an oversized knit and point-toe pumps, using wool and suede textures to offset the pinstripe design. As temperatures start to thaw, it’s simple cotton T-shirts, worn slightly oversized and half-tucked into the waistband that master office-appropriate but effortless. 

For the day to night transition

Granted, there’s not a hugely social scene in January but on the odd occasion when after-work drinks might not seem like a bad idea after all, you’ll want to be dressed appropriately. Enter the Pixie, yet again. Double-breasted means double-duty, after all. The blazer, layered over the season’s languid silk silhouettes will add a little structure without taking things too seriously and the contrast results in something unexpected that feels oh-so right.
