Trend Alert: Matchy Matchy Fall Suits


As seen at Miu Miu RTW Fall 2012 fashion show, matching pant suits will be huge for this Autumn. Everyone wants to get in the power seat every now and then and these suits will get you there. Go for a deep gemstone colours such as greens and burgundy for that lux school girl look, or try a ‘print on print’ if you are feeling brave! Pair them up with a basic shirt or a t-shirt, keeping it simple on the accessories too.

Wear these short shorts before the summer is over, with cute ankle socks and heels. I am in love with the deep red of Ted Baker ‘PIRA’ tailored flannel suit jacket, £199 and ‘PIRASH’ tailored flannel shorts, £109. The fabric has a really subtle sheen to it which will work in the evening setting too. The second example is by Miss Selfridge, lace detail jacket, £45 and knicker shorts, £32, are featuring an ageless combination of black and nude.


These full pant suits are more work friendly, as well as carrying a great print, they both have a very slimming skinny fit on the leg. Mango jersey preprint blazer, £59.99 and elastic trousers, £34.99. Warehouse red tile print jacket, £70 and trousers, £45.
