This is a bit of an overdue one! FINALLY, the one for the Fashion fans who have been asking for more outfit details on the purple suit I wore for London Fashion Week.
In case you missed the huge gasps of shock radiating through my Instagram when I told people it was from a supermarket, yes yes, it was by F&F at Tesco. (current employer, so I may be hugely biased but let's let the pictures talk for themselves shall we?)
Given my corporate finance background, you can understand why I'm very comfortable in a suit. Being a bit obsessive about stuff that matches, I have about 25 blazers in my wardrobe, many of which have matching shorts and bottoms. HEAVEN.
To keep it less formal and a bit more fashion, I've opted for glorious colour with this F&F Purple Textured Suit - only £20 for the top and £12 for the trousers. Yes, a full suit for less than £35 - better believe it! (it also comes with a £10 skirt option for those who prefer a more feminine look)
Being honest, the website photo doesn't do it any justice. The website photo looks a bit cheap and tacky, but thankfully free returns made me take a gamble and it paid off!
Whilst I could have paired this with heels and a clutch, I decided to keep it casual and boyish by pairing with some new Primark trainers (for £12 they are IDEAL Adidas Stan Smith copies!!) and a chunky Marc Jacobs watch.
This would make a great Xmas party outfit too, teamed with a silky cami and heels. Check out my party LBD alternative - the female tuxedo- here.
Matching hair is optional.
I'm also hugely crushing on these two tailored beauties from Topshop. Aren't they perfect for this Winter??

What do YOU think? Would you wear a coloured suit? Would you buy fashion from your supermarket?
