Tailored separates are a great alternative to the classic power suit

The key to creating a powerful work ensemble is sharp tailoring ‒ the trick is keeping it contemporary. Pairing the gilet with sleek, ankle-grazing trousers makes for a great Spring/Summer alternative to the classic power suit, while a khaki silk blouse adds an on-trend hit of colour. I finished the look with this olive leather bag because it fits in so perfectly with the blouse without feeling too matchy, matchy.

Breton stripes help to break up navy whilst maintaining an off-duty vibe

Eyelet Detail Gilet-weekend


My go-to casual look tends to consist of four basic pieces: jeans a T-shirt, a blazer and trainers. This formula of mine stays the same throughout the seasons, but with spring now in full swing the blazer can be substituted for a gilet. Of course at this time of year the Breton stripe is rife, and in this case helps to break up the block of navy whilst maintaining that off-duty vibe. This is an outfit that says, ‘I’m chic yet effortless.’

Styling the gilet up for night starts by ditching sleeves completely

Eyelet Detail Gilet-Evening


Styling the gilet up for night starts by ditching sleeves completely and this pale grey sleeveless top is the perfect choice. To keep the silhouette looking sleek I’ve added these slim stretch trousers, which ‒ when teamed with a pair of killer heels ‒ make your legs look endless. This leather clutch conforms to the minimalist feel of the look, but I’ve also added in some metallic jewellery for a touch of understated glamour.
