Blazers for Anything but the Boardroom: Our Style Panel’s Tips for How To Style a Blazer

style-panel-blazer-02-768x1122

A wardrobe basic that makes our must-have list season after season is the blazer. The tried and true staple is constantly being reinvented and repurposed in different colours and fabrics but remains a go-to for office attire. While workwear may be where we usually see a tailored jacket, we’re mixing things up and wearing our blazers anywhere but the office. Mix and matched with a contrasting skirt or worn with a bold print, there’s a reason this piece has stuck around.

Challenge #177: How to style a blazer for anything but the office?

Smart Trousers That Are Feminine Too

Satin print palazzo pants, €79.95 at Massimo Dutti
I talk a lot about the boyish properties of smart trousers and how much I like to embrace a slightly androgynous look by incorporating masculine details such as pockets and lapels into my outfits. But many women (me included, occasionally) want to look unashamedly feminine, regardless of whether they’re going to the office or an after-work party. So I’ve pulled together a short list of trousers that look incredibly smart, but feminine too, because as we know, these properties are not mutually exclusive. Femininity can appear strong just as much as it can soft. I think these silk trousers from uterque.com are exquisite. Apart from the beautifully feminine botanical print, these pants are high-waisted, which helps to create a very womanly silhouette. When you’re standing still they’ll look...

How To Make Pink Look Modern

Trench coat, €149 at Massimo Dutt

It might surprise you to hear, but pink is the new power shade for SS17. Instead of looking pretty in pink, this season the aim is to look empowered in it instead. How? By embracing masculine shapes and boyish details as well as contemporary cuts.
Choosing a piece with a sportswear vibe adds the necessary nonchalance required to pull off this traditionally feminine colour. This Zara top with athleisure-style stripes looks cool rather than girly.

Trench coats had a strong presence on the SS catwalks this year. This blush-hued Massimo Dutti trench reinvents the classic coat with its unexpected colourway, and adds a lovely boyish touch to the pared back shade.

We look to the stars for fashion guidance whenever we can, letting them light the way and point us in the direction of chic, on-point looks that work for every kind of occasion. One such occasion? Valentine's Day, the holiday that places a high level of importance on a great date, and with it, a great date night outfit. With that "dress to impress" mindset, we rounded up four celebrity looks that are as effortless as they are put-together. Style your go-to slip dress with a darling pair of black stiletto heels, or pull off a fitted bodysuit by layering it under a sleek black blazer. In either case, each is maxed out on chicness with minimal effort (aka the best kind...

How To Do An Undershirt Without Looking Like You’re In 8th Grade

image
Back in my middle school days, wearing an undershirt was like a little act of rebellion. Dress codes strictly prohibited any showy tanks tops or straps thinner than three fingers — but, boy, did we get around that. By simply throwing a white T-shirt on underneath, we could get away with wearing just about any crop-top, bra-top, spaghetti-strap, or otherwise revealing shirt without getting punished for it. Lately, though, I've noticed this styling trick having a resurgence — and it's not just to avoid breaking the rules. Layering an tee under any lace top or slip dress instantly dresses it down. Plus, it's probably the easiest (and cheapest!) way to make any summery staple feel more seasonally appropriate, letting you wear...

Sienna Miller Looked Like A Beautiful Tiered GUCCI Cake

mtq0mjuxntm3mtgxmzg2njk4

We're still recovering from obsessing over Sienna Miller's messy-ponytail-and-black-ribbon combo at Sunday's Golden Globes, and now, the British actress has hit us with another excellent look. At the Monday premiere of her new film "Live by Night," Miller wore a layered tulle gown from Alessandro Michele's spring 2017 Gucci collection. And if ever there was a confection-like ensemble, this is it.

landscape-1483038235-nye-outfits-index

There's no time like the present to fall back in love with your local shopping mall (it's warm, there's a food court, etcetera, etcetera). In the age of online shopping, it's oddly easy to forget that there's an option beyond clicking and waiting, but trolling the mall is a high school-throwback worth revisiting, especially if you neglected to plan ahead and order the perfect thing for New Year's Eve. We've shopped out five different outfits—all centered around one perfectly festive dress—that you can most likely find at a shopping-plex near you.
