Sorry about the slight delay between this post and the last one in this series, but I am back with some more occasion wear inspo. There was no way I could do this series without featuring a suit of some sort. They are the ultimate piece for an event in my opinion, and always sexy in an understated way. They are the most obviously versatile piece you could buy for an occasion too, as you can then wear the jacket and trousers independently of one another in the future. For this post I wanted to share a dressed down way of wearing the entire suit, which would maybe be an option for a night out if you don't fancy heels but still want to look smart.
But first things first, the suit. It's from Sandro and is in the most incredible colour. I have already worn the blazer on it's own a couple of times, and it looks incredible with denim! The white buttons are what really make it for me, it makes it feel like it's the perfect image of Spring and I love it! The trousers are a cropped length, not quite wide enough to be a culotte but by no means a straight fit. The entire suit is made of a thick fabric that is going to hold it's structure so easily, something that is essential in good tailoring!
The colour makes it such a statement that I didn't want to add much more into the look, so nude was the best colour to opt for. Some nude courts to lengthen the legs (this trouser length does cut your legs short), a sparkly nude top and my Loewe Barcelona (probably the most evening appropriate bag in my collection). The matchy-matchy accessories really helped to keep this outfit feeling super chic and effortless, despite such a statement piece being involved here!

Aannddd for the not-so-casual-casual-look. Lets be realistic, there is a limit on how casual you can make a two piece look. But as I said, you could totally wear this on an evening out for some 'I am dressed up but also very laid back and like trainers" kind of vibe. The blue in my vans was a very 'AHHHH' moment with the satisfaction of how well they matched! In all honesty I am more likely to wear this as two separate pieces in the future, I feel like the trousers would look great with a denim jacket and loafers, and I have already established how well the jacket works with jeans. But, all in all, if you wanted a suit for a Summer wedding this one would be the perfect option. Cost per wear, especially for the jacket, can drop wayyyy down, and could even be worn to work if you fancied braving colour in the office!
