A sharply tailored power suit conveys its confidence through perfection – neat, streamlined, controlled. But this season’s suits, and their wearers, have cottoned on to the self-assurance that radiates through a more relaxed approach: true power lies in feeling absolutely no compulsion to impress. This is the essence of the slouchy suit; it’s smart credentials are there, but there’s no need to shout about it.

How to stay on the right side of sophisticated? Take notes from stylist and art director Beatrice Gutu: keep the suit minimal and go for a dark color palette (black never fails). Introduce accessories in similar shades and pair with a simple shoe (the best thing about the slouchy suit? Its perfect partner is practical footwear – sneakers, boots, sandals…). If you’re feeling more adventurous, pastel-hued suits are ideal for warmer weather and even bring a modern femininity to parties. Comfort never looked so chic.
