Trend Alert: Printed Trouser Suits

Not to be reserved solely for office hours, this tailored wardrobe staple has been given an instant Spring/Summer update with bold colours and big prints for a new spin on cocktail attire.

While we’re all for a failsafe little black dress, sometimes a girl needs to mix it up - case in point: a statement trouser suit. Just look to fashion icon and designer Victoria Beckham, who once known for her flashy body-con frocks, now favours sleek suits tailored to perfection.

This style staple offers a timeless appeal and can be worn for a multitude of occasions for the office and beyond.

Gone are the days of bland navy suits with shapeless fits, this season we saw designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Zadig & Voltaire offer a fresh spin on the classic two-piece for their Spring/Summer 2016 collections.

Suits were tailored and form fitting with skinny trousers and shrunken jackets, splashed in eye-popping colours with look-at-me prints and embellishments.

We’ve trawled all the shops to find you best pieces available in the Dubai shopping malls now.

The soft blush shade and romantic bloom print gives this suit a feminine touch. Wear with patent flat brogues or strappy stilettos.

Stylist’s tip: Play up your best attributes by experimenting with the dimensions of the suit. For example, if you’d rather hide your thighs look out for wide-leg palazzo pants and pair with a cropped jacket to accent your waist.

We love the long boyfriend-style fit of this blazer. Pair this printed suit with leg-lengthening pointy heels.

Stylist’s tip: If top-to-toe prints are too loud for your taste, pick one printed piece and team with a solid block colour.

How To Dress Like… Jessica Alba

A lauded actress, a respected businesswoman and a bona fide style icon, here’s how to get Jessica Alba’s look.

When Jessica Alba stepped out in a fabulous party frock to attend the Giambattista Valli fashion show at Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture autumn/winter 2015, she caught the attention of the style elite.

The 34-year-old Sin City actress stopped traffic in a printed mini dress paired with chic thigh-high black boots, accessorising with a dainty box clutch and a simple gold bangle. The mother-of-two kept her make-up minimal with a swipe of natural pink lipstick and her cropped ‘do blow-dried straight.
