The feminine suit was pinpointed as a clear trend for this season, so I guess it is not surprising that there have been a number of celebrities on the style pages showcasing their androgynous but chic tailored single breasted jackets. We saw Cara Delevingne and friend Suki Waterhouse both wearing Burberry suits in metallic blue and burgundy to celebrate the BAFTAS and the start of LFW. They looked great I thought! The colours keep the girls looking young but sophisticated and looked effortlessly stylish.

Next Angelina Jolie wore her Saint Laurent suit on the red carpet to the BAFTA awards, accompanied by Brad also in his suit. The suit being SL of course looked absolutely stunning but I felt all together it was a bit too try hard. On top of that standing next to a man all night who is also in a suit does not create the same romantic coupling as it usually does when the woman wears a gorgeous gown. Saying that however I’m sure she must have felt wonderfully empowered and clearly was confident enough to be unique. On the daily mail femail pages..which I find myself on almost everyday, I saw this picture of Emma Watson wearing this suit to a chat show in NYC – I think this look really suits her – the perfect proportions and court heel.
It just so happens I was watching Sex and the City 2 the other day with some friends and we all agreed that Sarah JP looks gorgeous in her maid of honour suit – it just really suited her. Just as it suits all of the women above. That got me thinking is the famous trouser suit, that we have Yves Saint Laurent to thank for, really only suited to a petite figure, or, when well tailored can be anyone’s best friend? I own neither a suit jacket or trousers, and cannot afford to yet, but I would definitely save to invest in one that will suit me and my body. (Sorry about all the suit puns!)
