Here's a catwalk trend that was so big that it's already filtered down to the streets. See all our favourite coloured pantsuit snaps from MBFWA 2018.

There were a few trends that we knew we'd see this year at Fashion Week Australia. But there were a few that took us by surprise, and one of those was the coloured pantsuit. This fresh take on suiting makes a bold statement and oddly is more wearable than the traditional black variety.

The first incarnation of this statement-suit style was at the Camilla and Marc show on Sunday night. An eye-catching, pea-green suit stood out against a catwalk that was inspired by the Australian landscape. Green popped up again at the Albus Lumen show where we saw a forest-green suit jacket as well as a rich chocolate-brown pantsuit. Bianca Spender's crisp and clean collection featured a pretty, peach pantsuit, and we saw striking white suits at shows by both Karla Spetic and Pereira Fitzgerald.

Even C/MEO Collective joined in on the pantsuit action, showing off a sunny, yellow number in its bold yet ladylike resort collection. Mariam Seddiq showed off a slightly more traditional camel-coloured version. And even cult-favourite label, Still Still Studio featured a very pretty periwinkle-blue suit in its fashion week show.
