Trouser suits are hot spring news for style savvy celebs like Kate Hudson

7 MAY 2009
Last summer was all about flower prints and flowing maxi dresses, but in 2009 the boho-chic look seems to have been consigned to the back of the wardrobe. The must-have item on every VIP party girl's shopping list is an uber-tailored trouser suit.

Teamed with killer heels, they make the perfect party outfit - as demonstrated by Kate Hudson this week at a magazine bash in New York. The Bride Wars actress was on elegant form in a Stella McCartney ensemble comprising a herringbone-weave white jacket, wide-leg trousers and a silk blouse.

Her look was finished off with gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes stilettos and a loosely pinned-back hair style.

While Kate's shimmering creation ensured she cut an elegant figure, opting for a vibrant tone can give the trend an edgy twist. Catwalk star Heidi Klum worked a hot pink satin, skinny-leg ensemble recently, contrasting the feminine colour with a masculine 'do formed by sweeping her long locks tightly against her head.

Trousers suit options also stood out at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala. Rihanna never one to shy away from making a statement on the red carpet opted for one, as did Stella McCartney.

The Umbrella singer had chosen an unusual Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo-style suit, the huge puffball sleeves of which echoed another of this season's key trends emphasis on the shoulders.

Women's trouser suit ambassador Stella McCartney, whose summer collection features several pastel suits, also turned heads in a black lace jumpsuit of her own creation.
