Ladies occasion suits have gotten something of a bad rap of late, seemingly the sole property of slightly frumpy Mums at weddings. Thankfully, some designers have remembered how great a well crafted, feminine suit can look, and its no surprise they’re turning back the years for inspiration.

John Charles used a great big dollop of classic 1940s Hollywood style as inspiration for his Spring/Summer 2008 collection (still available in many stockists), and this dress suit is one of my favourites. Grown up glamour at its very best, this suit is one that will remain classic for years to come.
