Skirt suits – especially the kind that fall demurely below the knee – are not something you normally think of as appealing to the young and chic. But a quirky print can furnish even the most serious of silhouettes with a punch line, setting a balance of sophistication and youthful fun. The perfect example? Style blogger Doina Ciobanu wearing a matching set of high waisted skirt and three-quarter sleeve jacket, the sea of navy elevated from potential seriousness by a rain of red and white candy.

Doina had the suit made from Miu Miu fabric, perfectly matching her accessories to the colour palette – in this case a bold red Chloe cross-body bag and Charlotte Olympia pumps.

These shots of Doina – whose blog you can find at – were snapped during Paris fashion week.
