Back in February, everyone was talking about Angelina Jolie’s stunning appearance in a black tuxedo at the BAFTAs. As if to consolidate that iconic look (a look that was nothing short of sensational, let’s be honest), she’s gone and posed for Elle magazine’s June issue wearing another skinny black suit. Whereas, at the BAFTAs, Jolie worked the delightful conceit of a loose bow tie, here she leaves her collar open for a casual/sartorial mix. Jolie proves time and time again how much of a classic dresser she is, often combining simple but stylish garments like this suit and white shirt.
Women’s tailoring has experienced a big resurgence recently. Jolie isn’t the only celebrity to have donned a sharp, androgynous, black suit. Cate Blanchett and Gemma Arterton have also been photographed wearing one. A custom trouser suit, fitted perfectly to your measurements, is often called “androgynous,” but in my opinion it can be incredibly feminine. This is because the fit is so complementing. Check out the delicacy of Jolie’s jacket. With a custom trouser suit from A Suit That Fits, you can recreate this highly-fitted, sometimes androgynous, yet also beautifully feminine, look.
