SPRING SUITING FOUR WAYS

04.04.16

Beautifully tailored spring suiting is the ultimate workplace investment and whether worn together or styled individually, the navy Delo separates are a particularly classic option. This season, why not push the hardest working items in your wardrobe that little bit further with our alternative styling options. Shop SS16 suiting

1. AS INTENDED

The most classic way to wear suiting separates is – unsurprisingly – as a suit. Switch up the skirt for trousers on days in the office and put consideration into the additional details to keep things fresh. Whilst the vital elements stay unmoving, the versatility can be celebrated with the addition of luxurious shirting and indulgent footwear. These are the elements that will give the everyday staple a stylish slant. When dressing in the morning, take a moment to look at your outfit without the blazer. All too often it’s easy to throw something simplistic on as a base layer and forget about the impact that it has when the suit jacket comes off. Embrace this season’s elegant blousing - be it beautifully draped, silk styles or those printed with a spring-ready pattern - to inject your look with personality.

2. SMART-CASUAL

The right suit blazer can translate well to the weekend when styled right. Carrying the ability to elevate even the simplest of separates, there’s a certain timelessness that comes with adding a sharply cut jacket to skinny jeans and a basic T-shirt. The Delo’s navy hue is particularly classic, and it takes on a fresh, spring-ready guise when teamed with soft grey denim and optic white. Block-heel sandals in rich suede will add a contemporary final touch and keep the look relevant for now.

3. OFF-DUTY

Off-duty dressing holds an unwavering reputation for being a dressed-down affair, but this doesn’t have to mean your jeans and T-shirt uniform should be adopted every time you have day to yourself. With the addition of your tailored suit trousers, weekend heroes get a polished upgrade that’s just as easy to wear but ever so slightly more chic. Layer up in an oversized knit to balance the slim-leg  Delo suit trousers and introduce a more relaxed guise than you’ll be used to seeing in the office. Metallic flats add a hint of shine and keep things youthful, and a felt fedora will secure this look’s fashion-focussed status.

4. DAY TO EVENING

Styling that works both in the office and translates well to after-work events, drinks or dinners can be a tricky one to master without changing in between, but think outside the box and things might seem a little simpler than initially believed. The classic silhouette of a pencil skirt is a great starting point, and when imagined in the new-neutral, (navy) it takes on a slightly less corporate and more trend-focussed guise. By styling it with a top in the same hue, it creates a look that’s at once elegant and pulled-together. To really up the impact, add statement jewellery and open-toe shoes that show off a colour-pop pedicure.
