Sharp looks – tailoring trends for spring/summer 2018
As London fashion week begins, the luxury-shopping destination MATCHESFASHION.COM explores SS18’s fresh take on tailoring.
3 min read
During World War I, tailoring was first adopted by women for entirely practical reasons. Then, designers such as Coco Chanel began to create suiting specifically for women. Now, tailoring in its different forms has become the backbone of the modern woman’s wardrobe.
For SS18 it continues to reign, with designers introducing new cuts, interesting textures and softer hues to their suiting. From trouser suits to evening looks, this is how to work tailoring into your look for the new season.
The trouser suit
The trouser suit walked triumphantly onto the runways this season, thanks in part to the Hillary effect – the presidential candidate’s smart suits became her signature look during the 2016 US election. Designers gave new life to the workplace mainstay – the staple had a modern revamp with relaxed cuts, oversized shapes and neutral tones at labels like Stella McCartney, Lemaire and Joseph.
These pieces are the definition of minimal luxury: to the untrained eye, they appear simple but on closer inspection their elevated fabrics, complex construction and directional details prove they are anything but. For example, if your office allows for a creative dress code, look to Chloe’s velvet brown suit which is decorated with a whimsical horse-print.
