YES YOU CAN: Wear a killer trouser suit

Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.

There is something empowering about a well-cut trouser suit. If I need to feel confident and in control, it’s a look I’ll reach for time and time again. An oversized jacket is a key trend piece and feels as fresh with a tee as it does with an open wing-collar shirt. The newer tweaked, statement-shoulder styles are perfect for a special occasion, equally so the three-piece pinstripe – always chic with piles of jewellery and heels.
