Trend Breakdown AW12: Suits & Blazers

January 23, 2012 BY CAPSULESNEWS

There's no denying that menswear is returning to suits and blazers. Guys are dressing up again-- to work, and for casual situations, and well tailored, slim fitting suits are a key silhouette for AW12. But slim and sleek isn't the only way to go-- there were plenty of flowy trousers, low slung crotches, rolled up cuffs, and even shorts for the more adventurous types out there. Material interest is the secondary story here-- nubby tweeds, sophisticated wools and shiny silks add surface interest to the modern suit. Below is a roundup of some of our favorite examples from the runways in Paris and Milan.
