Spring looks to wear now White shirt style challenge


3 ways to wear
The classic blazer

Introducing the most hardworking piece in your wardrobe: the navy blazer. Perfect for everything from work to weekend, here’s how to wear it for any dress code


1) Ace nine-to-five style

Navy is the new black. It’s understated, chic and complements every skin tone. Work that into a tailored, longline, wear-with-everything blazer and you’ve mastered the art of effortless style. Enter this gold-button version from M&S Collection. A no-brainer for the office, team with a crisp white shirt, tailored trousers in this season’s buttercup yellow (surprisingly versatile) and power heels. Style promotion guaranteed.

2) Dial it up for date night

Dinner jackets aren’t just for men. Whether it’s a first date or your 50th, showing up in a blazer gives off an assured sense of style. Slip it on over your favourite dress (this polka-dot design strikes the perfect balance of playful sophistication), roll the sleeves, pop the collar and add statement heels and a bold lip to finish.

3) Weekend chic in an instant

Parisian women are the masters of this look: Breton stripes, easy denim and a sleek blazer for that covetable Left-Bank polish that never goes out of style. Flash some ankle with cropped wide-leg jeans and sleek black sandals (the modern way to do sexy this spring). Finally, inject a subtle shot of colour with a tan leather handbag.
