‘Sometimes, suits can be seen as powerful and give off a successful look and feel, even sometimes can be seen as having it all together. This look has been worn by many celebrities, models and royals.’
She continued: ‘I feel at the moment the white suit is having a moment, because it is perfect for the spring and summer time of year and can be matched with various colours to switch up the look and feel of the outfit.
‘The colour white, ivory or cream suits many skin tones and is flattering due to the light reflecting off it.
‘A white suit is a timeless piece and I feel that these looks have been picked for that reason.’

Meanwhile Rochelle also suggested the trouser suit could be a versatile piece for anyone’s wardrobe.
She explained: ‘There are many ways to rock a suit. I feel that some of most popular looks are casual for daytime, more relaxed and can be worn with flats and trainers.
‘Or it could also be a smart and elegant look, with a nice shirt or top and heels. For an evening or event look, pair it with a top which has a more silky or satin finish.’
The Duchess of Cambridge proved she was the queen of coordination when she stepped out in a white suit during her tour of the Caribbean earlier this year.
Kate opted for a £1,370 fresh white jacket with matching £575 trousers from Alexander McQueen during a meeting with the Prime Minster of Jamaica.

Kate has a close affiliation with Alexander McQueen having worn the British fashion house’s designs on notable occasions, most famously to her wedding in 2011.
Online, the blazer is described as ‘a testament to Alexander McQueen’s expert tailoring skills’ with ‘strong shoulders’.

Going to Valentino all round, she wore a £2,200 off-white bag from the Italian designer. She also accessorised with a golden ‘Love pendant’ by designer Sophie Lis, which refers to a French poem about enduring and growing love.
The necklace, first worn by Meghan in 2020, is made by designer Sophie Lis, carries the engraving ‘Qu’hier’ after a diamond encrusted plus sign, and ‘Que Demain’ followed by a ruby minus sign.
The reference is an an ode from the 19th century French poet Rosemonde Gérard which translates to: ‘Every day I love you more, more than yesterday less than tomorrow.’
