The trouser suit comes in all different shapes and sizes needless to say. I once even owned a pinstripe one. I was only 12! Get yours in velvet, get it in baggy linen, get it in stiff scarlet red drainpipes. Get one in grey safe, la mode du jour herringbone. Get it in wacky slime green like the Gucci scandalous one. Get a stickler black one from Zara. Topshop even do a non sleeve pink wrap around top to match their bottoms! Play it safe or don’t. Go half way with a pussy bow tie silk blouse underneath. Go mad with loads of “Save the Last Dance” chunky gold and a purple long 70’s bandana. Shake a few moth balls on your grandmothers’ burgundy wool beret. Platforms, moccasin loafers, fur sliders, adidas runners- plenty of ways to dress the feet.
From Diane Von Furstenberg to Asos. Mark Jacobs to River Island. The Trouser Suit proves itself that it can be transported forward backward and side ways in time. It even exists in a parallel universe; catwalk and street. Look at this little devil from M&S Christmas partywear:
In reference to her Tartan Trouser Suit she once appeared in on the screen, Keaton as her role in “Annie Hall” sported the bowler cap, wide baggy trouser, necktie and jacket, and well she’s been doing so ever since!
‘It’s not the worst tragedy’- Diane Keaton
A good old-fashioned plaid two-piece is classic. If your bold enough to wear a tartan print get out there and wear it. Besides, if it’s anytime you’re going to get away with it it’s this season. Festivities, mistletoe, Christmas parties and mince pies. Don your tartan trouser suit and drench it’s spirit in mulled wine!
