Styling a suit when it's not a suit

The Suit is everywhere, and anyone who's anyone is sporting one,

I do not own a proper suit and I could never see myself wearing one, I mean I don't work in an office and I'm not a teacher. But the suit has had a makeover, and is now often much more of a casual outfit, in softer fabric and more feminine cuts. So of course I had to get on the band wagon, being skint meant there was know way I was going to invest, but after going through my wardrobe I found trousers and a blazer that work together as a "suit" so the suit that's not really a suit was created.

The blazer is one from Bershka I bought last Summer and I've had my monies worth as I have worn it loads, in fact its been on here no less than 3 times before. For me the "suit" is perfect for Spring when you don't need a coat, the blazer makes a great light jacket, and you don't have to hide your outfit.

You guys know I'm not a smart dresser, I will make anything I can casual, and will wear trainers whenever possible, and for me this makes this suit far more me, and my style.
