If you’re wary because of the associations with your dull 9-5 wardrobe or anything remotely workwear-based, you can forget it.

Loafers come encrusted with pearls and your cross-body in rich satin jacquard – all to up the fancy factor. Finish by mashing up your influences and adding some 00s oval tinted shades to peer out through. Bossed it.
