Yves Saint Laurent once said: ‘A woman is seductive wearing trousers, only if she wears them with all her femininity’. This is true for one of the biggest trends of the season – masculine tailoring.
You might associate menswear-inspired clothes with winter but it’s a key look. Balmain, Victoria Beckham and Yves Saint Laurent were all front-runners, showing us how it should be done.
Floral prints and sugar-hued separates are obvious ways to feminise the look, but summer black is also on trend and remains effortlessly chic. Read on to discover our top picks for a seriously tailored spring.
Tailored shorts, like this pair by Witchery are a godsend for city workers in the summer. We love tailored and chic – and adore this affordable pair even more!
Floral prints and summer go hand in hand. Zara’s bold printed trousers have a dramatic design thanks to an eye-catching floral print.
Combining a beautiful, figure-skimming cut with summer’s trend for interesting prints, slip on this Tropical Print Silk Pencil skirt and pair it with a crisp white shirt or sheer blouse to create a feminine feel.
This sheer frill blouse is a great piece to soften sharp tailoring. If you choose a white shirt that’s particularly sheer and you’re not much of an exhibitionist, then wear over a stylish camisole.
The blazer is a fashion staple – it dresses up jeans, dresses and can be taken from day to night with ease.
