You Would If You Could… Bright Suits

Markronson2_2There are endless trends and endless items you can wear to copy them. However, some looks are just out there to be seen.

You know what I’m talking about- the type of outfit that you might be let off wearing if the road was a catwalk and we were extras from Madonna’s ‘Vogue,’ throwing shapes at helpless passers-by.  This post is out there to give those looks an airing (we might just tone it down a bit!) Let’s look at the bright suit which is a current favourite among paparazzi-prone men.

William_cameron_mikaIt all started with William Cameron being featured in both Vogue’s Miss V and a Grazia (ermm….it was my sister’s) article wearing a rather vintage-tastic pistachio number. 

Then, just when the look had almost fallen off my fashion radar, Mark Ronson walked onstage at the Brit Awards in an equally show-stopping suit. With the simplicity of the white shirt and subtle hue of his metallic tie, Ronson was able to avoid the chocolate-wrapper look that has seen so many award-goers make their way onto some Worst Dressed List. Mika, another bright spark at the Brit Awards, was wearing a not so subtle green tailcoat. I personally don’t think it was quite so snazzy (did I just say that?) but then again he was on stage with Beth Ditto and we are talking about Mika. Hardly an equation for the wearable wardrobe.

    The Mark Ronson blue suit reminded me of a Take That look from the mid-90s Brits when they sang that Beatles medley… a covert homage perhaps? Or an unlucky coincidence!?
