How to Wear: New Tailoring

How to Wear: New Tailoring Source: Vogue

It’s 2017 and the world is becoming ever more difficult to navigate. Which foods give you cancer? How to talk about politics at the dinner table? And, that old chestnut, how do I wear tailoring now?

We’ve browsed street style and catwalk looks to bring you this: a guide on how to make your tailoring wardrobe contemporary, fabulous and enviable.

Black Belt

Whether you’re a karate extraordinaire or not, adding a black belt to your trousers or to the waist of a boiler suit will instantly add a feminine silhouette with a masculine accessory.

Gender Gymnastics

No longer a case of borrowing from the boys, 2017 is the year to take for keeps.

With labels rolling out non-gendered collections, it’s clear that the world is ridding itself of harmful gender stereotypes. Rejoice by wearing ‘masculine’, oversized suits and shirting.

Flash Dance

Subvert codes of office dressing by choosing shoulder/clavicle-baring pieces in structured, statuesque cuts.

Jacket Dress

Go a couple of sizes up in that jacket you like so that it becomes your new favourite (and comfiest ever) dress.

Check You Out

Checks were a huge feature of fashion month for autumn/winter and they particularly shone on suits and separates like these.

Sleeve it Out

Let your sleeves hang over the tips of your fingers for a comfy, instant update.

Colour Catcher

A trend of the last couple of seasons, bright and pastel suits are still going strong. We love the aquamarine slim-cut Oscar de la Renta iteration and the crimson overload at Givenchy.
