The Slouchy Suit Is 2022’s Answer To The LBD

This year brought about an assortment of divisive red-carpet trends, from the naked dress to statement denim numbers. But what actually distinguished itself as a favorite among stars and industry insiders alike? The louche suit.

The It-girls seem to be obsessed with the baggy suit, as evidenced by Dua Lipa’s recent appearance in a grey and white version by The Attico and Emily Ratajkowski’s pistachio Everlane set. And, of course, so are the It-boys, from Kid Cudi in Louis Vuitton at the Vanity Fair Oscars After-Party to Robert Pattinson bringing slouchy Jil Sander to the London premiere of The Batman. Frankly, we love to see a trend that works for everyone.

Of course, the slouchy suit has been around for decades—think Talking Heads frontman David Byrne’s power shoulders during the ’80s, or the grey Giorgio Armani suit that Julia Roberts wore to the Golden Globes in 1990. It’s experienced a renaissance this year, though, with Martine Rose, Peter Do, Gucci, The Row, and Stella McCartney all sending iterations down the catwalk, while more affordable labels such as Raey, Frankie Shop, and Cos are offering versions that don’t break the bank.

To serve dazzling grandeur at a festive soirée, amp up your suit with glittering embellished sandals by Mach & Mach and a crystal-encrusted Chato Studio mini-bag. For a more laidback event, pair chequerboard Vans slip-ons with a lambswool Charles Jeffrey Loverboy beanie and an oversized white Uniqlo crew-neck T-shirt—worn untucked for maximum coolness.
