STYLING

THE SUIT AND COAT COMBO IS A WINNER

By Maybelle Morgan, 4 March 2018

It's been an eternal winter and there's no doubt that braving the weather conditions can often be monotonous for the old wardrobe. After all, there's only so many jumper and jean combos to be thrown together. So we turn to our sartorially sure street-style counterparts currently doing the rounds at the AW18 shows – and the result is a certified new combo to overhaul your cold-weather looks. The boss suit and coat combo. Here are four we're crushing on...

Have a cow

First-timers? When there's as many layers involved as a suit and coat, go with a unified colour palette to bring the look together. This street-styler sticks to dark-toned hues, starting with a slate-grey suit with a 00s-style printed tee to add a casual element. The cow-print meets Cruella de Vil faux-fur coat adds some kitsch fun to the tailored base, while the netted bag and black-and-white bandana impart some additional texture.

Puffer play

The best outfits are made when worlds collide. Case in point? This ultra-dreamy eclectic combo of high/low, dressy/casual style. A smart dove-grey suit with subtle gridline checks (bonus points to the Scandi-style wide-leg trousers and thigh-skimming blazer) gets an injection of street-style cool with a mustard puffer jacket, worn half-zipped and casually cascading over the shoulders. Shocking-white pointed sock boots and a structured grab-handle bag add retro kudos.

Check mate

It really doesn't get chicer or more Milano than this colour-coordinated getup, oozing 60s-style tailored class. At the base is a teal suit with tapered high-waisted trousers tucked over a nude bodysuit. The black-and-white checked jacket tossed over the shoulders elevates the look and adds major print appeal. White pointed boots amp up the retro feel, and then an extra-long tassel scarf brings together all the layers with an up-top monochrome slam-dunk.

Party pair

When the temp is hitting the minuses, it can be pretty hard to motivate yourself out of PJs and into night-out appropriate gear. Any sort of skin-baring is practically frostbite territory, so take notes from John Travolta and don a suit for your Saturday Night Fever deal. This bold oversized striped number is a nod to the ongoing 80s trend and the astronaut silver chunky boots and egg-yolk yellow satin bag are oh-so-glam additions. But it's the knee-skimming hot-pink American Hustle style faux-fur that brings us to our knees.
