The Topshop Tailored Burgundy Suit Outfit

I’m trying something completely different for this outfit…a suit! I’ve always loved how beautiful a suit can look on a woman, especially when it embodies the masculine elements, but looks feminine. I know most of us are no stranger to Angelina Jolie’s infamous suit outfit when she made a statement on the red carpet. With that in mind, I have always wanted to give it a go myself, but was never really sure if it would suit me (pun intended!) or if it would look silly.

I partnered with Octer, which is a website that collates the products from over 200 of the top UK stores into one database, making it easier to compare clothes from a range of different retailers and saves you from visiting multiple different sites. Also, if you scroll down on a product page, you will see matches to your chosen product. This is a great way to compare style and price, so I found this Tailored Burgundy Suit from Topshop on there and went with it! I chose a size UK 8 for the jacket and I ended up having to go with a UK 12 for the trousers as they run really small. I’m usually a 26-27 (UK 8-10) in jeans, so trousers are a whole new ball game for me and I was quite shocked that I had to take nearly two sizes up! Is that something you have to do as well or are these running small?

I paired this Topshop Burgundy Tailored Suit with a cami top in white from ASOS, my Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels, and my new Chanel Wallet On Chain bag (you will be seeing this properly soon!) as I wanted to keep it all classic, chic, and smart. I didn’t want to go with a traditional button up shirt with this suit though as I can often find that buttons get in the way for me and I like things to look a bit cleaner, so I’m really happy with how things turned out. I wouldn’t have thought that a suit would have been something I loved and enjoyed wearing, but it definitely is and I really like how it fitted and looked, which surprised me since it was from Topshop and not custom made. What do you think of my Topshop suit? I’d love your opinions on this as it’s new for me!

    I heard about Octer, and this Topshop suit is fantastic, dear Lorna! I loved the suit, the cut, the color!!! You look stunning, a model! I loved the shoes as well. It is nice to see you in a suit, even though you didn’t think it would be comfortable – nice to change sometimes! Hope you have a nice day!

    Wow you look stunning Lorna! I love this look! The suit is so flattering on you, and the burgundy colour is gorgeous! It’s great that you took a chance and tried an entirely different look.

    Hello Lorna!

    Really classy this one.. Great colours and great outfit in general, it looks really good on you!

    I like it. 🙂 I think you’ve chosen it perfectly for yourself both in terms of style and colour too. You certainly look as though you’re heading off to something very important. 🙂

    The sizing is interesting to read about. I think clothes sizing seems to be a less than precise science at the best of times though. 😀

    • October 28, 2016 / 2:07 am

      Yeah, sizing is definitely one thing you can’t count on, ha ha 😀 I’m really glad you like it! I think it will come in helpful for future events actually, which is good!

    The same happens to me, I’m not sure if a suit will look good on me. You look great! Have a nice day!

      Yeah, I can see what you mean with that one. This one isn’t stretchy though so it wouldn’t fit snug like that, it would require a different type of cut, but I quite like this one. I find it more fashionable and trendy than a really tight fitting one which might look too much like office wear. Just my thoughts though.
