The Power of the Suit

Modern, chic and stylist; the power of the suit is endless. A tailored jacket and trousers are a duo that should be part of every woman’s wardrobe. It’s a secret weapon of styling; worn together or separately, a suit demands attention, and having recently grown in popularity as occasion wear, with royalty and celebrities alike, wearing suits on the red carpet; it’s become a great option for an event, whatever your style.

A suit is not only a timeless option, it’s easy to dress down too, making it versatile and hardworking. If you haven’t already, it’s time to invest in your perfect pairing, and we have designed pieces that are tailored to perfection and contain our trademark eye for detail.
From Cate Blanchett stunning in a burgundy tuxedo for a premiere, to Michelle Obama regularly wearing trouser suits for official events; the suit brings a new level of sophistication. We’ve come a long way from unflattering, garish ladies suits of the past; it’s now all about flattering the feminine form, creating modern and stylish silhouettes and making you feel empowered and fabulous.
The suit is also incredibly versatile, and can be changed from an elegant wedding outfit to a casual brunch look with a quick change of accessories. The Duchess of Cambridge is a great example of that; Catherine has regularly been seen at official occasions wearing a suit, both dressed up with heels and a clutch bag, and dressed down styled with a t-shirt and pair of leather trainers – she’s also a big fan of a pop of colour, like the Countess of Wessex, who was just this week was seen at charity function wearing a light pink trouser suit.
A great suit should be considered, well designed and easy to wear. You want to take the effort out of dressing, and have it as a fail safe in your collection. Both a jacket and tailored trousers are fantastic investment pieces to have in your wardrobe. A black suit making it perfect for every day wear. But if you want to make a statement go for a pop of colour; a great alternative for a summer wedding.
Suits are also great for layering, enabling them to be worn throughout the year. Worn under coats in winter, or thrown over the shoulders with a silk cami underneath, they can adapt to the seasons with ease.
Sassi Holford designs are all about making a woman not just look incredible, but to feel incredible too and her suits are no different. Each individual piece is a classic garment that will work with many outfits, accessories and your individual person style. Sassi incorporates flattering cuts, with exquisite tailoring and materials in rich, exciting colour-ways.
