Sharpen Up With Some On-Point Spring Tailoring

4 months ago

I'm obsessed with spring fashion this year for one reason... tailoring! However you choose to style it, sharp blazer jackets are key for spring/summer.

It's all about plaid.

You can also throw a little gingham in there, maybe some boxy stripes or even herringbone, but this season, it's all about taking a heritage pattern and teaming it with a chic and ultra-casual look.

My advice? Size-up with these blazers; slightly oversized is a definite vibe. Then, pair them with high-waisted, relaxed-fit, cropped jeans, a basic white tee and mules. This is the PERFECT daytime spring look.

Pastels for spring... who knew!?


Now, you might not be totally surprised that pastels are a must-have this spring, but I promise they're a little different this time around. We're not talking flowing baby pink maxi's and I won't even mention the word floral.

Pastels this spring are sharp, tailored and intentional, in the form of the blazer. Colours can be sunshine yellow, powder blue, mint green or even a subtly soft grey but they all have one thing in common; they are ultra-slick.

Pair it ideally with matching tailored trousers to create a full, monochrome pastel outfit. However, they just as easily pair with boyfriend jeans.

Go bright or go home...


Not really, but brights were everywhere on the runway for spring/summer 18 and a statement blazer is the perfect way to tap into the trend. I LOVE a bold orange. Paired over an all black, loose-fit look of wide-leg capri pants and a lace cami, this look is sexy, yet means business.
