Award-winning actress Emily Blunt turned heads in a white trouser suit paired with black accessories at the screening of her new film, The Fall Guy. The ensemble was a striking departure from traditional red carpet looks, as she showcased how to make a statement with monochrome while making a white suit look less bridal.

Showing us the power of black accessories, Blunt offered a masterclass in how to turn an all-white suit into a fashion-forward and elevated look. The outfit features a high-neck black blouse, black ankle strap heels, and a short waistcoat. We're taking notes from Blunt for our summer capsule wardrobe.

The clever use of black styling makes this suit feel less bridal and more appropriate for any formal occasion, making this a perfect choice for parties, fancy dinners or any special occasions.

woman&home fashion editor, Caroline Parr has offered some words of wisdom on wearing a white suit, 'Styling a white trouser suit can be tricky, since there's so much to think about. Getting your underwear right, whether white suits you and most importantly, how to wear it so you don't feel like Bianca Jagger getting married. Unless of course, you're looking for bridal vibes! Adding classic black will always add balance to things, and the monochrome look is one of our all-time favourite trends. One of my favourite styling hacks is spraying white collars with hairspray to help prevent make-up stains. Try it!'.
