Anita Pia, store manager at Bella Freud, on the eponymous designer’s perfect transitional tailoring
For me, this look is what Bella Freud is all about. It’s the perfect transitional outfit for spring. The caramel, single-breasted jacket and trousers are great both for the day—when I would wear them with trainers—or into night, when you can just swap in a wedge or ankle boot. The fitted shoulders and the longer-style jacket also mean this outfit won’t date, and can be worn with most items in your wardrobe.
To wear this with a cotton t-shirt underneath, as in the image here, is a fantastic option and doesn’t make the suit look too stiff—although it would look equally good teamed with one of our silk shirts or knitwear pieces. The trousers are our classic tailoring; they elongate the leg and can be worn smart or casual. I love the colour of the suiting, too—it will brighten up your wardrobe and mix well with neutrals. Our tailoring is addictive: once you have one suit, you’ll want another.
