Colour is a guaranteed way to bring a classic style up to date. On paper, this single-button blazer and high-waisted trousers could be from the 1970s – but add vibrant green plus a coated high-shine finish, and you have something completely new. Styling it with a white vest, white trainers and white accessories balances the bold colour beautifully.

Who says tailoring has to be traditional? Smooth, crisp nylon instantly makes a blazer-and-skirt set feel fresh. The oversized blazer, with its padded shoulders and exaggerated notch lapel, is a winner on its own. Match it with the accompanying mini skirt and all-black accessories and the result is a runaway success.
Give your wardrobe a dose of dopamine with seriously bright colour. We love the contrast between the cropped wraparound top and the high-waisted trousers on this set. It's sure to make a statement at parties and on brunch dates.
The sign of a great blazer is that you can wear it with everything – and we're getting that feeling from this smart single-button style. The earth tone is universal, and the oversized fit means you can add as many (or as few) layers as you want underneath. We've kept things refined and paired it with a black top, jeans and accessories for an easy meeting-in-the-city outfit.
Straight out of Cher Horowitz’s Clueless closet, this ensemble has impact. Pleated, wide-cut trousers add movement and flow, as does the casual off-the-shoulder blazer. Add yellow check fabric into the mix and you have a summer-tailoring look that is strong enough to stand alone.
