A printed suit has always been a fashion challenge. Print, alone, is daring for some, let alone a double-up of dizzying pattern or ditzy florals. Add an oversized pyjama silhouette and silky texture, and the print puzzle becomes even harder to crack. So let us look to Margot Robbie, who went out in Matteau’s Oversized Silk Shirt and matching Drawstring Trouser, the Australian actress and new Bombshell star proving a beacon of inspiration for both pyjama-dressing and double-down print.
In Matteau’s glorious Ginger Hibiscus paisley (a modern riff on the paisley of the ’60s), the breezy shirt features fold back cuffs and side splits while the pants cut a relaxed figure, bold statements in their own right. But when worn together, high fashion magic. A printed two-piece also takes the guesswork out of finding a top or bottom, a sartorial search which can sometimes feel endless. But it was Margot Robbie’s final touch which elevated the look even further, buffing in a burnished rust shadow across her lids, the makeup move tied the entire look together tonally.
A tricky look, yes, but also a very forgiving look (particularly during the silly season when waistlines are challenged thanks to hedonistic indulgence), try this for your next summer soirée when the champagne and canapés call.
