WARDROBE WONDERS: Borrowing from the boys with a great piece of tailoring

Posted on: January 8, 2013

As we tweet, speak, read and text, the A/W ’13 London Collections: Men are taking place in gorgeous locations all over town.

In the spirit of all things masculine and in honor of Savile Row (and the fact that I cannot resist a beautifully tailored jacket) here are a few ‘borrowed from the boys’ looks with a feminine flourish of course. After all when it comes to our wardrobes we’ve got a lot to thank masculine style for. Just think of Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent (‘le smoking’ anyone?). A versatile go-with-anything blazer is a great investment at this time of the year. Keep to low key neutral  shades and add touches of on-trend metallics and crazy fluorescents with your accessories. Natalie x
