As the fashion industry steps away from traditional ‘trend-led’ collections, an increasing number of designers have shifted their focus onto creating wardrobe staples with an idiosyncratic twist. Enter Nili Lotan’s lustrous silk-satin jacquard-woven blouse: this lust-worthy shirt is anything but austere, striking the perfect balance between practical and playful. Give this forever piece a Parisian-style spin by pairing it with a precision-cut camel coat, blue jeans and mock-croc loafers for a chic daytime look. After dark, accentuate its outré undertones with leather cigarette pants – courtesy of cult LA label Re/Done – and a pair of sleek block-heeled boots. Pull the outfit together, literally, with a belted houndstooth blazer for a ladylike look with a hint of rebellion.
