Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

It’s a denim coat, but not as you know it. Lift your everyday look with this riff on a timeless spring cover-up

The humble jean jacket has had a makeover. Our design team have elevated it to outfit-maker for spring/summer 2017. Take the kimono-style silhouette: perfectly in line with today’s mood for wearing loungewear as daywear, the stiff denim fabric and waist-belt keep it on the right side of smart – so yes, you can wear it to the office. Layer over a simple cotton T-shirt or camisole with wide-leg trousers and heels for a working lunch, paring it back on weekends with black skinny jeans (or, if you dare, match the shade for a double dose of the blue denim). The key thing to note is that every outfit should be built around it – make it the focal point and you’ll soon be fighting off the compliments.
