A bold trouser suit is a Jameela Jamil wardrobe staple. Here, Stylist picks the best on the high street.
We all have an item in our wardrobe that, when we scrape back the hangers and see it, causes and involuntary smile. For Jameela Jamil, her fashion happy place is also her signature style: brightly coloured suits. The first time she appeared on Stylist’s cover was in a grass green Topshop two-piece. Bold, with an easy element of fun, a colourful trouser suit is utterly versatile and gives a hit of fashion dopamine to all in your radius.
Loose-fit trousers and a double-breasted jacket with a quality white t-shirt and simple trainers (try Veja’s all-white Esplar pair, £90, arket.com) are everyday easy. For smarter moments, seek out a suit with slightly cropped trousers, a jacket tailored to the waist, and add a silk vest underneath.
Pick a colour, any colour, and you’re ready to go: make like Jameela and shine bright.
