HOW ASOSERS DO TAILORING

Suits her sneaks
Skirt suits are really great, but a flippy mini version just won’t fly in most offices. Rosaria’s two-piece has that longer-line houndstooth blazer for all the smarts, but a perfect fit and beaut blue hue means, like her, you’ll end up wearing this guy at the weekends too with trainers and a tee.

If you thought animal print was just for BNOs or the odd accessory, it’s fair to say Celia has put that rumour to rest. How do you make an entirely leopard-print suit look genuinely cool? Make like our girl and add your favourite basics: a cosy grey turtleneck, go-to grungy black boots and all the rouge lipstick. Boom!

The most 80s thing you can do, style-wise, is to play with proportions in a way that ignores everything recent wisdom has taught you. 2018 would have us believe that if you’re short, you might like to give the illusion of tallness by elongating your legs. Oh no, not the 80s. If you like a longline blazer, throw it on. Add a midi into the mix? Go for it friend. And ankle boots? Hell, why not. It shouldn’t work, but dammit it does.

Walk the line
A big ole wool suit isn’t for everyone, that’s fair enough. So give the illusion of suit dressing by matching your shirt and trousers instead, the perfect balance between suit levels of swish and pyjama levels of comfort. Add box-fresh white trainers for weekend plans, or a pair of white pointed courts for the 9-5.
