The power pair: A blazer + pleated skirt

L-R: Natasha Goldenberg, Christine Centenera and Giedre Dukauskaite

Love your skirt and sweater pairings but want to switch things up for the new season? Enter the masculine blazer. Proportions are the key to nailing this opposites-attract combination; the blazer must be slightly oversized and longline, while the skirt should be asymmetric, midi or floor skimming – all the better for tackling tricky trans-seasonal weather. Keep it modern by avoiding prints and sticking with clean, fresh colors; pastels and sherbet hues won’t just give you a contemporary twist, they’ll also act as a sartorial palette cleanser.
