Suits are still, it would seem, everywhere, and there are only more of them joining the ranks for the new season. Wool ones, crepe ones, print ones, plain ones. There's an amazing brocade one in Zara, a brilliantly OTT velvet one not yet in Topshop and a simple but bright crepe one on ASOS that are all jostling for my attention. But this one got there first and will always be special...despite being tougher to style in the colder months. Droopy trousers and relaxed cut blazers are the pursuit of summer. Winter is the time for polish. But thankfully we have autumn to be the in-between, and the season to clash pops of colour (like this amazing scarf - I lived in Helen Moore faux-fur last winter and this one is the perfect addition) with muted tones.
