The two-piece suit is perhaps the most ubiquitous of men’s garments. Rare is the man who does not own one, and rare too is the man who doesn’t feel that instant sense of enhanced smartness when he slips one on. All men look sharp in a suit. It’s just a fact.
While a suit’s core function may be formal, the two-piece can be so much more than this, as was shown by the world’s leading designers on the spring/summer 2018 catwalks. From prints to bold colours, unexpected textures to creative styling, the standout suits of the season are far from classic in their aesthetic. From go-faster stripes at Prada to short trousers at Versace, designers proved that even style staples can be reinvented.
Whether you’re looking to turn heads at a formal occasion, embrace a more relaxed dress code in the office or introduce suiting into everyday life, these are the trends to be wearing now.
