Formal wear for both sexes is firmly back in fashion. The return of timeless chic and tailoring has dominated women's wear during this year's various fashion weeks and runway shows.
Although men's fashion evolves at a much slower pace than women's, largely unaffected by micro trends and fads, it is clear the formal uniform of old has been abandoned in favour of the lazier attire of jeans, t-shirt and trainers.
