If you thought suits were reserved for those in corporate jobs, think again.

As we edge ever closer to spring and our penchant for dressing up returns, tailoring is at the forefront of our agenda and this time it’s all about pops of colour.

While dopamine dressing is going no where, I’m still loving pastels. They were huge last spring, and if you ever wanted to know how to wear them without looking too cutesy, suits are your answer.

If the idea of wearing a suit fills you with dread, fear not. They comes in varying silhouettes, including more relaxed fits in the form of slouchy trousers with elasticated waistbands, bermuda shorts and oversized blazers. I’m all about comfy clothing too, so these details are important.

While the easiest way to wear pastel blazers and trousers is together, I love mixing and matching my pastels too. If you’re looking for outfit inspo, look no further than these influencers who show you how it’s done.

Plus, I’ve found 9 of the prettiest pastel suits in baby blue, pink, lilac and yellow for you to mix and match to your heart’s content. Zara, Arket, Mango, Ganni and many more high street stores have served up for the goods for the season ahead.
