How to wear a printed suit.

The printed suits at the Miu Miu and Prada Autumn/Winter shows caught our eye and inspired us to take a closer look at the trend. In today's post I'm showing you the ‘three degrees’ of wearing a printed suit, from the head-to-toe look to using the top and pants as separates to create different outfits. There are some great bargains for printed suits in the sales at the moment, so why not take the plunge?

I’ve chosen a €46 suit in a dark floral print from Topshop to show how versatile this addition to your wardrobe can be.  

LOOK # 1

The easiest way to try a printed suit is with a blazer. Start with a classic base: the black skinny jeans and white shirt you probably already have in your wardrobe. For fun, add some accessories like the the floral black necklace and finish the look with some more black like the bag and the boots that are perfect for the winter. 

LOOK # 2

The second look is all about the pants. These pants are great because they really flatter. I’ve added a white blouse and a nude belt to draw your eyes to the waist. This look is great for work or dinner depending on the accessories. I’ve chosen a gold chain necklace (H&M) and I kept it simple with a pair of black heels and a black suede clutch.  

LOOK # 3

And finally the entire printed suit. This is definitely a bold look and an easy way to get noticed. I’ve added a leather/metallic belt to break it up a little and ankle boots and a crossed body bag. But really, the only accessory you need is confidence!
