2019 is bringing some tropical vibes for women’s suits and we are loving it. This trend consists of bright coloured suits for women that make one think of tropical Islands and citrus fruits. The main colours for this style are shades of mimosa and citrus. Designers such as Escada, Balenciaga and Peter Pilotto have already embraced this trend in their collections for 2019. If you want to be bold and elegant, check out these bright suits and what tops to pair them with.

4 Accessories you should add to your suit look:
A watch is a good accessory to add to your suit. A bright suit needs to be paired with a watch that is plain in colour so that your look does not look to busy and exaggerated. Examples of good colours to match a colourful suit are: black, white or silver.
