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.
