As Meghan Markle stepped out with her future prince to their first official black-tie evening engagement she opted to dress in a suit. Markle was photographed arriving at the Endeavour Fund Awards last night in black trousers and a tuxedo shirt by designer Alexander McQueen. She ignored the protocol with that sartorial choice, but she is not the only one to fall under the suit’s allure.
From Stella McCartney to Victoria Beckham the suiting trend was already cemented last season. Inspired by power women especially Hillary Rodham Clinton the pantsuit has made a serious comeback which is now more evident than ever. Cate Blanchett, Diane Keaton and Chloe Sevigny are among the stars donning the power suit on a regular basis. But they aren’t alone.
Top models, fashion editors, street stylers and influencers are heralding this international uniform. We absolutely love how this suit trend can be translated into many variations. From checks to black sleek suits on Helena Christensen and Candice Swanepoel to the ultimate classic Annie Hall on Diane Keaton and her major influence on the Ralph Lauren brand.
