History of white suit
The current styles were founded in the revolution during the early seventeenth century that sharply changed the elaborately embroidered and jewelled formal clothing into the simpler clothing of the British Regency period, which gradually evolved to the stark formality of the Victorian era. It was in the search for more comfort that the loosening of rules gave rise in the late nineteenth century to the modern lounge suit.
White suit trend
Now female celebrity are deciding to opt for a suit when attending a red carpet event – but it seems times are changing as a new suit trend is fastly emerging and becoming increasingly popular. A example of a celebrity who donned this look is Rihanna, who wore a gorgeous Max Azria suit at the recent Billboard Awards 2011. It seems like white is THE no. 1 colour to go for. This pure colour gives a feminine and soft touch to the otherwise masculine attire.
