“You feel so comfortable in a power suit,” says Irish supermodel Roz Purcell. “I hate wearing dresses.”

Purcell recently teamed up with designer Pat Morley and the Scribe of London team in Cork to create a line of made-to-order suits for women. The suits consist of powerful trousers and blazers. “Jump suits and power suits are totally in now; it’s something that you can wear again as well as mixing and matching different styles and colours,” she said.
These suits are very high quality and are made to measure. There is nothing quite as unflattering as an ill fitting suit. It can be hard when shopping the high-street to find two pieces that are flattering to both halves of the body! This new line is mid range in price, it aims to be affordable.
She won ‘Best Dressed on the Night’ wearing this powder blue ensemble at the VIP Style Awards in April.
Two pieces are very versatile and can be worked into many different outfits. Suits don’t necessarily have to be worn for business or in an office. They can be worn formally or casually. Some might think that a suit would stand out as informal at an event where women are wearing formal dresses. When worn correctly suits can be just as formal, as seen below.
Another model following the suit trend is Cara Delevigne.
She wore this skin tight monochrome trouser suit to the Met Gala, much to the surprise of many.
She wore this blue number to the launch of her self-titled Mulberry collection.
The plunge look might not be for everyone. Roz Purcell and Cara Delevigne can carry it off well but shirts are more than acceptable to wear underneath.
When it comes to accessories heels, a clutch and simple jewelry are perfect to compliment and set off the suit.
Coming into summer something like this gorgeous baby blue shorts and blazer suit from Lennon Courtney’s Spring/Summer ‘Vacation’ collection. Even if we don’t get the ideal weather for something like this, tights can be worn.
