      Evolution of the pantsuit

             

      The 70s-inspired pantsuit will be big this summer. We should know. We’ve been doing our own version of the relaxed jersey all-in-one since summer 2007, when we first launched the Tluxe Bianca Jagger style, pictured above.

      Inspired by the likes of Mrs Jagger and cohorts Debbie Harry and Jerry Hall at the legendary Studio 54, the Tluxe pantsuit has evolved into the slouchy chic of our newest styles, Melissa O, and Elsa S, in stores now.

      First sported as workwear by women in the 1940s, the renaissance of the pantsuit into fashionable wardrobes started in the early 1960s thanks to designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Norma Kamali. This season everyone from Chanel to Lanvin are embracing the pantsuit’s relaxed glamour. Style yours up with statement heels for a night on the town, or take a note from Tluxe's Emma Balfour and go clean and casually simple by keeping accessories to a minimum and throwing on some great summer flats.

      On trend... navy, the new black

      We’re having a navy moment. Yes spring is on its way in the fashion world but the reality is there’s still a chill in the air and right now we’re swapping our chic little black dress for something in navy. Not only was navy big on the catwalks for winter, it’s softer and more subtle than black and is a great transitional colour as we head into spring, as seen above on our model Emma Balfour, who's wearing one of our navy maxi dresses from the new spring/summer 2011 collection, in stores now, and available online September 1. And if you can’t quite give up wearing black, just make like Stella McCartney and wear the two together. Or try it on your nails. Along with Chanel metallics, emerald green and turquoise, a deep petrol blue is the< newest nail shade for now.
