Women's Suits Are Making A Comeback, Here's How You Wear One

sainsburys suit

Meryl Streep is a big fan, as is Helen Mirren, and Victoria Beckham is championing them too... we're talking about the trouser suit.

A powerful duo of a matching jacket and trousers is the thing to be seen in this season, making its way down from the catwalks to the supermarket aisles.

Embracing a more androgynous style can feel daunting, but there are plenty of options to ensure you aren't venturing too far from your own personal style. From patterns and textures to block colours and classic cuts, there are options to suit all tastes - and price ranges.

But our latest inspiration comes from none other than Kate Garraway, who rocked a stunning powder blue suit live on Good Morning Britain.

The presenter chose a gorgeous Zara two-piece, giving her a polished professional look perfectfor kicking off a new week. Kate's outfit choice is a little on the expensive side, with the blazer selling for £79.99, and the trousers at £39.99 - but trust us, it'll be worth the investment.

Shop Kate's suit and our ultimate suit edit, and shake up your style for the season ahead...
