Trust Me—the 3-Piece Suit Is the Wardrobe Hero You Didn't Know You Needed

Months ago, Margot Robbie stepped out in a three-piece suit courtesy of Mango, and honestly, not a day goes by that I don't think about it. We've long made a case for the ease of a matching co-ord, but until recently, the three-piece suit hasn't had the recognition that I believe it deserves. 

Right now, celebrities and fashion people alike are making a case for the three-piece suit as a smarter and sleeker version of the humble co-ord. Much like the much-praised co-ord, the three-piece suit is a no-brainer way to create a smart, sleek look that works for a range of occasions. The already-paired pieces take the thought out of getting dressed and always create a put-together ensemble. Plus, you can separate the pieces for various outfit combinations: styling the waistcoat with relaxed jeans, throwing the blazer over a dress or pairing the tailored trousers with a simple tee for an elevated off-duty look. 

In a harmonious turn of fate, retailers have heard my prayers and offered up a variety of three-piece styles in all different colours and styles to ensure that anyone hunting to try out this elevated set has plenty of choice.
