Monochrome is a big trend at the moment for both men and women. I reported recently on British soul singer John Newman’s penchant for the white suit. I also gave some tips on good ways to adopt the black and white look. That was for the guys. But what about the girls?
Well, Lady Gaga is obviously never one to be left behind. She was spotted out in Toronto, Canada this week, wearing a white tuxedo suit.
Although it featured an ultra-modern, monochrome design, the white suit was actually fairly understated compared to some of the singer’s other looks.
If you’re thinking of having A Suit That Fits tailor you a white suit, why not add black lapels, turned-up sleeves and black seams for an unusual, cutting-edge look?Gaga’s decision to wear a black bra (and nothing else!) under her tuxedo jacket was a typically bold move – not something we’d suggest as a look for one of our customers, but we do like to see people innovate when it comes to their tailored garments.
Adding black lapels to a white suit is just one way to innovate. Our style advisors love it when they get to help you create unusual, innovative garments, and they can give you some excellent tips on what to do for that special look.
Recently, at our studio in Cork, Ireland, we helped create a scarlet suit with part-black lapels for a DJ who was on her way to Ibiza – check it out below!A Suit That Fits tailor women’s suits beginning at £535 for a two piece suit with a skirt or £595 for a trouser suit. A white suit with black lapels, like Gaga’s, would make a great look for a non-business event like a social function.
We always recommend owning, on top of your regular business suits, at least one “special” suit for occasions that require something a bit different. A white suit would definitely fit the bill – and would be even better with black detailing!
