AGELESS STYLE: Wardrobe staples for everyone by fashion stylist Arabella Greenhill

We often save new tailoring trends for smarter occasions. However, this summer’s fresh, modern trouser suits are relaxed and versatile, rivalling floral dresses as the casual go-to.

WEAR NOW

Linen is summer’s ultimate fabric, but it can be tricky to iron. A linen-cotton mix creases less and will look crisp with just a quick once-over from a steamer (I recommend Philips’ compact handheld options, from £37.99, johnlewis.com).

When choosing a suit, you need to love the cut and fit of the blazer and trousers individually as well as together for better cost-per-wear value. If you’re out shopping, style the suit pieces separately with other options – such as shorts, for when the sunshine returns – or picture them with items you already own.

A longer-cut blazer is a great everyday layering option. A shorter cut lends itself to glam tops and dresses, while also complementing more casual items such as denim.

Wide-legged trousers work with chunky sandals or trainers, cropped hems look smart with ballet flats, cigarette-cuts pair well with kitten heels and tapered designs suit loafers.

WEAR LATER

Warmer tones such as rust and mustard are perfect for autumn and winter months. Just add a light knit underneath your suit to give it the year-round treatment.
