These suit trends are perfect for warmer weather

If you typically think of suiting as a winter-only option, we’ve got news for you – the latest trends for men and women are perfect for warmer weather. From slouchy linen tailoring and mini skirt (or short!) suits to a sunshine-inspired colour palette, there’s something to flatter every body. Suits require next to no effort or thought to pull together but deliver the kind of polish that never looks out of place. Got a special date night/wedding/important birthday around the corner? Try a suit. Can’t figure out what to wear to an upcoming celebration? Try a suit. Want to take out first prize at Fashions on the Field for women’s fashion? Try. A. Suit. Keep reading for our trend edit of the season, plus tips on how to wear them best.

The trend: linen tailoring

Warm weather and linen go together like weekends and sleep-ins. No matter where you’re going, choose a slouchy spring linen suit in a timeless neutral hue and you’ll look effortlessly pulled together. If you’re nervous about creasing, don’t be – it adds to the resort chic vibe. Pair with strappy mules, a tank and gold jewellery.

Try yd., Myer, Zara, David Jones, MJ Bale.

The trend: mini skirt and short suits

Keen to trade in your pencil skirt for something a little more fun and flirty? Mini skirt and short suiting is having a moment, and the timing couldn’t be better. Styling one of these suits is easier than it sounds – add clogs or sneakers for a casual, fashion-forward take or keep things polished with strappy kitten sandals.

Try Forcast, Cue, Tommy Hilfigure, Portmans, Sheike.

The trend: joyful colours

The quickest way to transition a suit out of winter is to brighten up your palette. Black, beige and navy have their place, but the latest styles come in happy-making hues. Think: lolly pink, cerulean blue and lemon yellow. Not confident in top-to-toe colour? Wear your spring suit as separates with shades like white and grey.

Try Politix, Kookai, Sheike.

The trend: wide legged pants

A guaranteed conversation starter, wide legged suit pants are a nod to ‘70s silhouettes. (Google: Bianca Jagger at Studio 54.) The latest come in retro cuts with modern detailing like contrasting stitching and frayed edges. These suits can be styled simply or dialled up to 10. Add a print shirt and platforms for best dressed status.

Try David Jones, Aje, Myer.

The trend: laidback layers

What happens when loungewear meets suiting? Semi formal laidback layers, that’s what. The best of both worlds, it’s about upgrading your favourite hoodies, knitted bralettes and trousers with a sharply cut blazer. Opt for pieces that have a slouchy feel – fitted won’t work here. For best results, opt for neutral colours and style with trainers.

Try Bec & Bridge, Politix, yd.
