If there is one piece we should all have in our wardrobes right now it is the trouser suit.
Not since the 1990's, when it was the go to item for serious power dressing have there been so many on the designer catwalks.
Forget the 90's office flashbacks, the SS13 version has a new air of confidence.
So let this fail safe secret weapon get to work for you.........
The strong retro feel of this Saint Laurent collection, is relaxed and sexy, with a chic, rock and roll mix thrown in.......
Think Bianca Jagger 1970's.
Narciso Rodriguez.... as Anna Wintour, editor in chief of American Vogue once said, "No one but Narciso has ever made a simple line look more stunning."
Haider Ackermann : Spring/Summer 2013
Now let the drama begin.........
As always Haider Ackerman gives us dramatic looks with beautiful elongated shapes, and complex draping.
Get the look for less..........
A classic shape blazer in white will give you endless wear.
To create the look, layer with black crop top, silk vest over.......and ooh la la!
Vibrant and rich, this eye colour will take you from day to night.......
A wardrobe essential, wide leg black pants.
Black and tan shoes always a classic.
Done here with a big modern kick!
She is still not smiling........But I am,
this is a great suit to get the Saint Laurent feeling.
Matalan, this store can be badly lit, which in turn makes the merchandise look even cheaper, and at times it is short staffed.
But it is always worth a look for some great bargain pieces.........
Get it home, mix it in , and make like it's designer!
Want to get ahead?........get a hat!
Softly sexy, and oh so chic...........
Retro eyewear is the way forward, for a foxy look.
Great look.......fab price!
The Tuxedo, another wardrobe classic.
Yves Saint Laurent gave us "Le Smoking".
