Nailing AW19’s sophisticated mood is no easy feat, but luckily Next has made it easy for us by taking tailoring out of office and giving it wear-everywhere appeal. Neat blazers and languid trousers work as hard as you do, and look as good off-duty as they do in the office. Need ideas on how to style tailored pieces for this season and beyond? We've got you covered...
Consider Your Colour Palette
Modern tailoring makes a bold statement, and so do vibrant red tones like those in Next's latest collection. Opt for an accent or take your hue from the catwalk and wear head-to-toe for a standout look. Rich cream and caramel tones will also add some sophistication this season, so be sure to work those into your AW19 palette, too.
Layer It Up
To tone down a formal outfit, layer your tailored pieces over casual clothing. Think thin blazers over maxi dresses and slogan tees. For added cool girl points, roll up the sleeves too. And remember, on-trend accessories can help dial up or dial down your look.
Don't Overlook Outerwear
Tailored outerwear also takes centre stage this season. If you invest in one thing, make it a classic yet contemporary wool overcoats, which you can layer over a tailored suit. Wear all winter long – and for many more to come.
Go For Relaxed Cuts
With their relaxed cuts, these modern tailoring pieces prove that suiting doesn’t have to be stuffy. Simply swap blouses and heels for chunky knits and boots to make your outfit look understated yet elegant. Paperbag trousers should also make an appearance in your new season wardrobe, thanks to their timeless high-waisted feature. We love.
