Why is everyone wearing these awful ill-fitted suits?
There is a fashion plague among us.
While we were all getting distracted by too-tiny sunglasses and the return of mom jeans, we didn't notice this one sneaking in under our noses - the ill-fitting suit: a look so brave even supermodels can't pull it off. Its signature design includes ankle length wide trousers, but not quite flares, an oversized blazer that looks like you borrowed it from Melanie Griffith's Working Girl wardrobe (minus the shoulder pads) and perhaps even most offensive, it comes in a variety of styles, colours, shapes and sizes, all more unflattering than the next.
What is the meaning behind this look? Is it supposed to give your hair and makeup an opportunity to shine or "discreetly" show off your abs because you've paired it with a lyrca crop top underneath a la Kendall Jenner?
Suits, when done right, are among the chicest items a woman can have in her wardrobe. It flatters nearly all shapes and gives off an enviable laissez faire attitude with your look. See Christie Brinkley below and her navy velvet suit.
Or Angela Scanlon at Royal Ascot over the summer.
Compare this to, say, Hailey Baldwin's "edgy", but ultimately hideous, combination in Paris last month.
Or this yellow suit from Topshop which wouldn't look out of place in Jordan Belfort's early '90s wardrobe.
We need answers.
