Best brightly-coloured women’s trouser suits (plus a great dupe for the Duchess of Cambridge’s pink suit)

Looking to give your wardrobe a colourful lift? Then this season’s trend for women’s trousers suits in every colour of the rainbow is just what you need.

Just ask the Duchess of Cambridge, who was recently seen sporting a lovely pink suit to a roundtable event discussing the Early Years sector.

While the Duchess’s suit is thought to be from designer brand Alexander McQueen, there are some great dupes on the high street, including this chic Freeman’s number, which comes in at £90 in total.

Looking for more ideas? Give your return-to-the-office look a new twist courtesy of tailoring in vibrant shades from luxe lilac to canary yellow. There’s on-trend green suits, show-stopping red suits and smart coral suits, all of which look amazing whether worn to work, a party or a wedding.

As for what to wear underneath, YOU’s Fashion Editor Sophie Dearden suggests going bold and pairing a base layer in a clashing colour underneath your suit. ‘Try red with pink or orange, or blues with yellow and green’ she suggests. If the thought makes you nervous, then ‘white and cream base layers’ are also a great option, says Sophie. You can make a similar styling choice with shoes, either teaming neutral or colour clash options with your suit.

Jewellery-wise, it’s best to opt for bold, gold jewellery, says Sophie, as ‘Anything colourful could look too busy’.

Finally, to give your suit longevity you can also wear it as separates, teaming the blazer with jeans or a skirt and the bottoms with white trainers and a jumper day-to-day. ‘Choose a trouser shape you love to add versatility to your wardrobe’ says Sophie – that way, you’ll be happy to wear them again with T-shirts and knits.
