Cue the essential blazer

If there's one piece of tailoring to invest in, be sure to make it the versatile textured blazer. This piece is equally complementary to your formal attire as it is your casual style. It'll instantly elevate a grey crew-neck knit, jeans, and brogue boots.

Shades of blue

Besides making it easier to get dressed in the morning, wearing all one colour is also exceptionally flattering. Just vary your shades a little, so it doesn't look like a uniform.
